Encouragement and Prayer: Protected By Wisdom! (08/26/21)


This is the audio from the August 26, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.”
Proverbs 4:6 (NIV)

This week’s prayer focus is about the protection we have in Christ.  This protection is designed to keep us secure in our relationship with God as we journey toward an eternity with Him.  God’s protection isn’t designed to keep us from facing all trouble, in fact the Bible teaches that we will indeed face trouble of many kinds.  No, the protection is to guard our heart and mind in Christ Jesus in order to keep us pure and holy until the coming of Christ.  God has provided us with all that is needed, not to always protect us from trouble, but to protect us through troubles.

As you pray this week, ask God to help you live under the “roof” of His protection.  Pray that God would fill you with the wisdom that He promises to give without finding fault.  Pray that you would use godly wisdom to protect you from the temptations that accompany trouble.  Pray that God’s Word would be the source of wisdom you share with others.
