This is the audio from the August 25, 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 be my comfort, according to your promise to your servant.”
Psalm 119:76 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow in your understanding of His “great and precious” promises. Pray that a recognition of God’s unfailing love would comfort you in your times of greatest pain. Pray that you would always seek God to be your comfort. Pray that you would be obedient in comforting others with the comfort God has given you according to His promises.
