Today, while I was praying for a brother, I felt the urge to pray for that brother to overcome what he is going through. So I prayed:
Let my brother be an overcomer.
But, I felt within that, this was not the right prayer. So, I prayed:
Make my brother an overcomer.
Still, I had no peace about what I prayed. So, I prayed a third time:
My brother is already an Overcomer, in Christ.
And I had the peace and a smile came to my face.
