This is the audio from the March 14, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“ I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere men?”
1 Corinthians 3:2-3 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on being one who pursues an undivided witness as the body of Christ. God’s desire is that we all grow into a maturity that values each person for who they are in Christ. While God’s standards of right and wrong are the same for each person, it is far too easy to find ourselves caught up in quarrels and jealousy based on our own standards of importance. God wants to use our differences, not to divide us, but to help the world see the power of God in an undivided way.
As you pray this week, ask God to help you see the value you have to Him just the way He has gifted you. Pray that you would see others with that same sense of being made by God in a way that is just right. Pray that the things you build your life on would always be centered on the unchanging Word of God. Pray for a growing unity in Christ that helps the world to see Him in us.
“What, after all, is Apollos? And what is Paul? Only servants, through whom you came to believe — as the Lord has assigned to each his task.”
1 Corinthians 3:5 (NIV)
Pray that you would live with an undivided belief which is based on God’s Word. Pray that your sharing the good news of Jesus would lead others to an undivided belief that is centered on Jesus rather than on the messenger.
