Navigate to Setup -> Customize -> Accounts -> Fields
Find the custom field and click on it.
Then click on the Set Field-Level Security button. 
Make it Visible across all profiles, all at once!
You are done.

Hi Mayank, 

I did select the object and that particulra field and set "set field level security"  as visible to all profile. There is next icon called "View Field Accessibility" and do I need to do anything with that. If I can "View Field Accessibilty" is shows for some profiel the field is Hidden based on Page Layout. Any thoughts please.

Kumar, the Set Field Level Security makes the field visible on a page layout. However you can hide it on a page layout depending upon the record type or the page layout itself.
If you want to make it visible across all page layouts, you will have to do it one by one via the View Field Accessiblity and there's no way around that.
