Encouragement and Prayer: Captive Thoughts Which Are Known By God! (02/01/22)


This is the audio from the February 1, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.”
Luke 9:47 (NIV)

This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on praying about our thoughts as we follow God’s instructions to take every one of them captive.  We are each shaped by the things which enter our mind, and especially by those things that we allow our thoughts to dwell upon.  While it is impossible to shield ourselves completely from the arguments and pretensions which are opposed to Christ, with the help of God’s Spirit we can take captive every thought so that our actions would more accurately reflect Christ.

As you pray this week, ask God to help you be aware of everything that enters your mind.  Pray that you would live life with a greater awareness of how completely God knows your thoughts.  Pray that you would be more diligent in filling your thoughts with the things of God as you seek Him through His Word and prayer.  Pray for a greater honesty with God about your thoughts.

In prayer,
