This is the audio from the August 2, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.”
This week’s prayer focus will take another look at some things God calls His children to overcome. While we may want a life of ease and comfort, Jesus says that life as a follower of Him will be filled with trouble, misunderstandings, and even persecution. While that is not news that anyone really wants to hear, Jesus also tells us to take heart because He has overcome the world. When John wrote the messages from Jesus to the seven churches that we read of early in the book of Revelation, He ends each message with a promise for those who overcome.
“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.”
Revelation 2:17 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to empower you to be an overcomer. Pray that you would feast on the spiritual manna and rejoice in a new name that frees you from the past. Pray that your eyes would be open to the power of God to help anyone overcome their past.
