Let’s start 2021 with praise! This is my third year of Community Prayer, and I wanted to add something to this. If you have an answered prayer, something you are grateful for, ways the Lord has ministered to you, etc, SHARE BELOW and I’ll add them each month to the list. 🙂 Let’s praise also, while we pray!
This post is updated, sometimes daily, please check-in for updates, answered prayers, and for continued prayer over the requests. Thank you!
Let’s work together on prayer by praying for each other and lifting up our needs.

Heavensreef– “GOD has reached out to me in so many ways this past year. I for one did not look back on 2020 as being an awful year. I know there are so many people who have experienced loss in 2020, loss of loved ones, friends etc. Our nation has experienced loss in all ways. People have lost businesses too. Loss, loss and more loss. But my praise in the midst of all this is that if you survived 2020 and prayed for HIS will, then you will notice that in the midst of all this chaos that GOD brought you CLOSER to HIM. So that is my praise and my song today.”
