This is the audio from the October 11, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me.
From the depths of the grave I called for help,
and you listened to my cry.”
Jonah 2:2 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will have us praying about knowing a God who hears. It is a great comfort to know God’s promise that no matter where we are, He will be found by us when we seek Him with a whole heart. He can be found by us because He hears us from wherever we are.
As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow in a confidence that He not only hears you, but that He wants to hear you! Pray that you would live as one who is not only heard by God, but also as one who is listened to. Pray that this awareness of God hearing you would help you to be more consistent in talking with Him and in listening to Him. Pray for the courage to cry out to God no matter what circumstances you find yourself in. Pray that God would help you be one who hears others as you seek to reflect His nature to the people around you.
“In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.”
Psalm 5:3 (NIV)
Pray that your consistency in making your requests known to God would grow as your faith in Him hearing those requests also grows. Pray that you would learn the value of both expecting and waiting as you trust God to hear your requests.
