This is the audio from the May 2, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.”
Philippians 3:10-12 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on our need to keep our eyes on Jesus and press on. As we consider the power of God to raise Jesus from the dead, it is important to stay focused on our faithful pursuit of knowing that power in Christ. As you pray this week, ask God to help you overcome the distractions that keep you from pressing on as you ought.
Pray for a greater understanding of the growth you still need. Pray for a willingness to continue pursuing the things of God which help you be more like Jesus each day. Pray that the people around you would see the power of God at work in you in a way that increases their desire to know Christ.
Pray for discernment and wisdom to see beyond and through the divisiveness of this world so that you would love others as God loves both you and them.
