Encouragement and Prayer: Captive Thoughts Which Unite! (02/02/22)


This is the audio from the February 2, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“I appeal to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.”
1 Corinthians 1:10 (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 pursue agreement with others with Jesus as the basis for that unity.  Pray for a thought life that is united with Christ in such a way that divisive spirits have no place to dwell.
