This is the audio from the March 31, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong. Do everything in love.”
1 Corinthians 16:13-14(NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on some godly instruction that Paul gives as he wraps up his first letter to the Corinthians. Many times when we get to the end of a conversation or letter we become much more intentional and concise in trying to get our point across. It seems to me that Paul has that same tendency as he gets to the end of this letter we know as 1 Corinthians. These are not really new instructions he is giving but rather they are worded in order to convey urgency and importance to his readers then and to us.
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.”
Ephesians 6:10 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you know the value of receiving, and living by, godly instruction. Pray that you would seek a strength that comes from God so that His power can be seen through you. Pray that you would be consistent in putting on the full armor of God in order to find a strength which has a spiritual basis. Pray that your actions would lead others to seek out a strength that comes from the Lord.
