This is the audio from the May 17, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”
Philippians 4:4 (NIV)
This week’s prayer focus will be on God’s command that we rejoice always. While we may not say it out loud, most of us have a problem with this command — we don’t always feel like rejoicing. Right there in the middle of the command to rejoice always, the secret to being able to do that is revealed — “in the Lord”. When we live each day and moment of our life “in the Lord”, we are able to rejoice because of His presence with us and His working in us.
Pray for God’s help to live in the Lord each day so that you are able to rejoice always. Pray that you would see beyond the temporary difficulties and distractions that the enemy uses to steal your joy. Pray that you would pay attention to God’s reminders which call you to rejoice always.
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.
