This is the audio from the May 15, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, serving as overseers — not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not greedy for money, but eager to serve.”
1 Peter 5:2 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on learning to serve. God makes it clear in His Word that we serve Him when we serve people. While the world often defines greatness based on power and who you have serving you, God says that to be great you must become servant of all. As you pray this week, ask God to help you to not only see opportunities to serve but to give you the courage to actually serve.
Pray that you would eagerly desire, and look for, opportunities to serve. Pray not only for elders who serve eagerly, but to be one who eagerly serves all those who might look to you as an example.
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.
