This is the audio from the November 24, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Deacons, likewise, are to be men worthy of respect, sincere, not indulging in much wine, and not pursuing dishonest gain.”
1 Timothy 3:8 (NIV)
As we celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday this week and move toward the celebration of Christ’s birth, our thankfulness should not only remain but should grow each day as we consider the gift of Jesus. Giving thanks really ought to be a lifestyle for God’s children every day that we live. Our level of thankfulness will say a lot to the people around us who need to know of the hope that is found in Jesus. This week we will focus on being thankful for the various aspects of the church family.
As you pray, listen for what God would have you to do. Pray each day for the individuals of the congregation you attend as well as for the gathering of believers throughout your area and around the world. Spend time thanking God for deacons who serve with diligence and faithfulness. Pray that they would receive the respect due them. Pray for a heart of service to be found in each person whether in a leadership position or not.
