Encouragement and Prayer: Choose What Pleases God! (07/07/22)


This is the audio from the July 7, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your forefathers served beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.”
Joshua 24:15

This week we will focus our prayer time on seeking God’s help in making courageous choices!  Regardless of our circumstances, or even our own role in being where we are, we have the opportunity to make choices that determine, or show, who we really serve.  Our prayer life should help us to be in line with God’s will so our choices will honor Him.

“For this is what the LORD says: ‘To the eunuchs who keep my Sabbaths, who choose what pleases me and hold fast to my covenant . . . I will give them an everlasting name that will not be cut off.'”
Isaiah 56:4-5 (NIV)

As you pray this week, ask God to help you see accurately where you are at in relationship with Him.  Pray that your life would be lived choosing the things that please the Lord.  Pray for the courage to be consistent in pleasing the Lord so that others come to know Him.
