This is the audio from the June 13, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Simply let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No’; anything beyond this comes from the evil one.”
Matthew 5:37 (NIV)
As we continue to grow in A Lifestyle of Prayer, it is important to remember prayer should be a lifestyle, not an event. View prayer as your first priority, not as the last resort. This week we will focus our prayer emphasis on some things that God says about integrity. Selfishness and situational ethics have made integrity a dying characteristic — everyone else does “it”, so will I. Integrity is a part of God’s nature so it is a characteristic we ought to pursue in our life in order to better reflect Jesus to the world. As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow in your commitment to letting your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No’. Pray that the message you present with your life would match what you say with your words, and that both would match God’s Word. Pray that you would make a life of integrity a priority each day you live.
“Let the LORD judge the peoples. Judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness, according to my integrity, O Most High.”
Psalm 7:8 (NIV)
Pray that you would live in such a way that you have no fear when the One who knows your heart judges you according to your integrity. Pray for the humility needed to live with confidence in your integrity and in the righteousness of God.
