This is the audio from the July 11, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
Hebrews 11:6 (NIV)
This week we will focus our prayer time on living with a courageous faith. Since faith is required to please God, it is vital that we hold on to the seeds of faith which have been planted in us and nurture them so they grow into an ever-increasing active faith. Faith includes a huge element of belief, but it also is made up of confidence and trust which should lead us to do something about what we believe. As you pray, ask God to increase your belief in a way that gives you confidence to do the things of God. Pray that you would rightly examine what your faith is currently leading you to do. Pray that you would be wise in living life by faith and not use faith as an excuse for foolish decisions. Pray that your life of active faith would be centered in a relationship with God as you seek to represent Jesus well to those around you. Pray that the people around you would be more aware of Jesus because of your faith.
“When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, ‘Son, your sins are forgiven.’”
Mark 2:5 (NIV)
Pray that you would live with a faith that can be seen. Pray that your faith would be put into action in ways that are not only noticed, but in ways that help others. Pray for a visible faith that pleases God by the way you use it to care for others.
