This is the audio from the December 7, 2021 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.”
Psalm 43:5 (NIV)
This week we finish a two week focus on living a life that overcomes. While the time period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day is often filled with many celebrations, for many it is a time that is not nearly as festive on the inside as what the outside might represent. While I believe all of these prayer guides can be useful well beyond the week they are written for, this topic of overcoming may be one of the most needed on a continual basis as we pray for ourselves and others in our times of difficulty.
As you pray this week, ask God to help you be more aware of those who struggle. Pray that you would be better equipped to overcome as you learn from God’s Word. Pray that your hope in God would lead you to praise Him even in the midst of despair. Pray that your life would be lived in a way that leads others to praise God for the hope He offers.
