Encouragement and Prayer: A New Resolve To Press On! (01/17/22)


This is the audio from the January 17, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.  But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal.”
Philippians 3:12-14 (NIV)

This week’s prayer emphasis will be about living with a new, or renewed, resolve.  Sometimes we make new and right commitments but we lack the resolve to follow through as we ought.  God’s desire is that we set our eyes on things above and press on with a resolve to never give up.  Living with a new resolve equips us to follow through with our commitment to the things of God.

As you pray this week, ask God to help you know the things that you need to work on and to give you the resolve to press on in those matters.  Pray that you would never lose sight of the goal of growing in relationship with Jesus.  Pray for the courage to take your commitments to a higher level as you resolve to be transformed into the image of Jesus.  Pray for a growing desire to remain steadfast in sharing the good news of Jesus in every opportunity God gives you. Pray that you would be able to filter out the entanglements of your past that would keep you from pressing on.  Pray that you would keep your eyes fixed on Jesus and His heavenward calling as you live with a greater resolve to press on.
