This is the audio from the June 10, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit — just as you were called to one hope when you were called — one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all.”
Ephesians 4:1-6 (NIV)
Our Lifestyle of Prayer emphasis this week will focus on different aspects of unity from God’s perspective. It seems nearly everyone loves the idea of unity, if people would just agree with me (what I say, what I like, what I want, what I . . .) though really we just want conformity, not unity. Real unity comes when we decide it’s all about what God says, wants, and desires and not about me!
“Until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
Ephesians 4:13 (NIV)
As you pray, pay attention to any changes and/or actions God would be calling you to make in that area. Pray for the maturity to get along with one another as we all mature into a unity of faith. Pray that your knowledge of Jesus would lead you to a unity of faith that results in growing into the fullness of Christ.
