This is the audio from the August 12, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.”
Romans 12:12 (NIV)
This week’s prayer focus will be about growing in the kind of love that God says is sincere. If God’s love abides in us, it is supposed to show in our words and actions so that others will see Jesus through us. How we live life doesn’t earn us favor with God, but it does reveal our love for God.
As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow in the way your love for Him is expressed.
Pray for a prayerful attitude that helps you to be joyful and patient even when circumstances are less than ideal. Pray that God would fill you with hope that is seen and shared by the joy others see in you. Pray for the ability to live with patient endurance as you experience the many afflictions this life brings with it.
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.
