This is the audio from the August 19, 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!
“Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?”
1 Corinthians 15:55 (NIV)
Pray that you would live a life that reflects your knowledge that the power of death has been defeated. Pray that you would be able to grieve as one with great hope, knowing that the victory over death has been won by Jesus.
