Encouragement and Prayer: Crucified By Leaders! (04/19/22)


This is the audio from the April 19, 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.

“The chief priests and our rulers handed him over to be sentenced to death, and they crucified him.”
Luke 24:20 (NIV)

As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow in understanding as you walk with Him each day.  Pray that you would grasp the extent of God’s love for you as He allowed Jesus to be crucified.  Pray for an awareness of how your sin required a penalty you couldn’t afford.  Pray for a heart that is not hardened by the deceitfulness of the enemy.
