This is the audio from the February 14, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“You are my portion, O LORD; I have promised to obey your words. I have sought your face with all my heart; be gracious to me according to your promise. I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes. I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands. Though the wicked bind me with ropes, I will not forget your law. At midnight I rise to give you thanks for your righteous laws.”
This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on our response to God’s love. While much time, effort, and money will be spent by individuals this week trying to express their love toward one another, the psalmist gives us some great insight into how to respond to God’s love in ways that are good and right.
As you pray this week, ask God to help you live with a greater awareness of His love. Pray that you would seek to live with a loving response that is first directed toward God. Pray that your response to God would shape and direct your love for others. Pray for the wisdom and courage needed to love others with a love that accurately reflects God’s love for you.
“You are my portion, O LORD; I have promised to obey your words.”
Psalm 119:57 (NIV)
Pray that knowing God as yours, and yourself as His, would lead you to promise your life to Him. Pray that having the Lord as your God would cause you to not only make, but keep a promise to obey His words. Pray that you would live with a growing desire to know God’s words in a way that expresses your love for Him.
