This is the audio from the February 3, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me.”
1 Corinthians 13:11 (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 for a maturing growth which makes you think differently than you once did. Pray for the courage to choose thoughts that show maturity when they are spoken and acted upon. Pray that you would reject childish thoughts.
