This is the audio from the June 21, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don’t fall!”
1 Corinthians 10:11-12 (NIV)
Throughout scripture we are told to view various things as examples of God’s mercy, His judgment, His patience, His love, and the list goes on. This week our focus will be on praying about the examples we learn from and the example we ought to be. As we celebrate Father’s Day, it is important to realize we have a perfect loving Father to follow regardless of our relationship with our own father. Not only does God set the example through His nature and the life of His Son, He gives us godly examples throughout His Word for us to follow and learn from.
“Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.”
1 Corinthians 11:1 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you learn from the examples found in scripture. Pray that God would surround you with people who are faithfully following Jesus. Pray that you would learn to be a godly example as you grow in following the example of Christ. Pray that your life would be a consistent example. Pray that Jesus would be seen clearly in the way you live.
