This is the audio from the August 18, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.”
1 Corinthians 15:57-58 (NIV)
This week’s prayer focus is on not just the eternal victory we have in Christ, but how we ought to live victorious lives each day. Yes, there are losses that may be noticeable but they don’t have to define us. Loss of people. Loss of influence. Loss of finances. Loss of freedoms. Loss of peace. Loss of joy. The list could go on, but the point is that when we focus on the losses, we tend to forget that God has already declared us victorious and calls us to live like victors!
“A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads justice to victory. In his name the nations will put their hope.”
Matthew 12:20-21 (NIV)
Pray that your hope for justice that prevails would rest fully in Jesus. Pray that your life would reflect the heart of Jesus as you seek victory for justice. Pray for godly wisdom in doing your part to make things right when you have been wrong.
