Encouragement and Prayer: Compassion for the Hungry! (10/28/21)


This is the audio from the October 28, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat.”
Mark 8:2 (NIV)

This week’s prayer emphasis returns to a focus on compassion as we take another look at God through the book of Jonah.  Sometimes we are like Jonah who seemed to be okay with God’s compassion toward him but wasn’t too fond of God having compassion toward his enemies.  God’s desire is that we would grow in compassion not just toward those “on our side”, but toward all people everywhere.

As you pray this week, ask God to help  you grow in your understanding and appreciation for His compassion.  Pray that you would recognize the ways God has satisfied your hunger.  Pray for eyes that see the true hunger experienced by the people around you.  Pray for the compassion to share both physical and spiritual food with the people who hunger.

In prayer,
