Encouragement and Prayer: Leading With Integrity! (06/16/22)


This is the audio from the June 16, 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.

“And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them.”
Psalm 78:72 (NIV)

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 all leading you do, whether considered big or small, would be done with integrity.  Pray that all those who lead within God’s kingdom would do so with a heart of integrity.  Pray that the people around you would both lead with integrity and be involved in choosing leaders with integrity.
