This is the audio from the May 20, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
Philippians 4:6 (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.
Ask God to help you be prayerful at all times. Pray for a heart that desires to communicate with God about your needs and the needs of others. Pray that you would be able to rejoice prayerfully as you watch God work through the many requests that you take to Him.
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.
