This is the audio from the April 18, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“As they talked and discussed these things with each other, Jesus himself came up and walked along with them; but they were kept from recognizing him. He asked them, ‘What are you discussing together as you walk along?’”
Luke 24:15-17 (NIV)
Our “Lifestyle of Prayer” emphasis this week will focus on some lessons from a walk with Jesus. While we tend to gather and celebrate resurrection morning with gladness, that first resurrection morning was filled with much confusion and uncertainty. It is in that confusion that Jesus joins two disciples for a walk and helps them to understand all that had happened. As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow in understanding as you walk with Him each day. Pray for the courage to be honest with Jesus about your questions and the times you lack understanding. Pray that the lessons you learn would be lessons that you willingly share with others. Pray for the humility needed to listen to others in their times of confusion. Pray that you would share the good news of Jesus with others as you join them in their walk. Pray that the resurrection of Jesus would fill you with a message of hope that you carry with you everywhere you go.
“About Jesus of Nazareth,” they replied. “He was a prophet, powerful in word and deed before God and all the people.”
Luke 24:19 (NIV)
Pray for a growing knowledge of how Jesus fulfilled the prophecies concerning the Messiah. Pray that you would accept the power of God’s Word as represented in the life of Jesus. Pray that you would always trust the promises of Jesus.
