Are you tired of searching for your lost item? Don’t worry we have a list of prayers for finding lost things. The Holy Bible (Matthew 7:7, NIV) made us understand that whatever we want, we should “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” And, although some people may not believe this, yet we receive a lot of testimonies and proof that prayer works.
