This is the audio from the May 22, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7 (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 that you would live with the peace of God that helps you to rejoice. Pray that your heart and mind would be guarded by God’s peace in such a way that nothing would be able to steal your joy. Pray that you would rejoice in the mysteries of God’s peace.
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.
