This is the audio from the April 12, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
Hebrews 12:2-3 (NIV)
Our “Lifestyle of Prayer” emphasis this week will focus on a return to the words of Jesus from the cross. As we spend the week preparing to celebrate Resurrection Sunday, it is fitting to not only consider the sacrifice Jesus made, but to apply His very words to how we pray.
“Jesus answered him, ‘I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.’”
Luke 23:43 (NIV)
As you pray this week, use the topics to help you pray through difficulties, through weakness, through loneliness, through concern for others, and most importantly through the eyes of Jesus. Pray that you would live each day with a knowledge of God’s presence with you through His Spirit. Pray that your life and words would be an invitation for others to live in the presence of Jesus. Pray that the people you interact with today would have a desire to know, and be known, by Jesus.
