This is the audio from the October 29, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“So he got up and went to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him.”
Luke 15:20 (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 be filled with a tender compassion for the people you know who are lost and/or missing from the fellowship of believers.
