This is the audio from the August 23, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.”
2 Peter 3:9 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on claiming some of the promises of God. Promises in the Bible can be difficult for many people to grasp. Sometimes we tend to define the promise according to our understanding and what we want. When God promises comfort, how often do we want it to mean we would never experience a pain that would require His comfort? Even if we understand the nature of the promise accurately, we often expect the promise to be fulfilled in keeping with our timetable rather than God’s.
“May your unfailing love come to me, O LORD, your salvation according to your promise.”
Psalm 119:41 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow in your understanding of His “great and precious” promises. Pray that you would know the unfailing love of God that gives the promise of salvation that is based on His goodness. Pray about how God would have you love others in a way that reflects His love. Pray that you would share with others about the salvation God has brought to you as you live for Him.
