Encouragement and Prayer: Faith That Is Tested! (07/14/22)


This is the audio from the July 14, 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.

“Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves.”
2 Corinthians 13:5 (NIV)

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 be strong in faith as you experience times when it is tested.  Pray that you would accurately examine your faith as you consider the fruit it is producing.  Ask God to fill you with a faith that will pass every test it is put through.  Pray that your life would help others see the value of faith during the struggles of life.
