Encouragement and Prayer: Loving Those Who Seek! (09/20/22)


This is the audio from the September 20, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy.  He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd.”
Luke 19:2-3 (NIV)

This week’s prayer emphasis will begin a series about being loved by Jesus so we can love like Jesus.  We’ll begin with a look at Zacchaeus and pray about how to love the overlooked . . . even when the overlooked just might be you.  Whether you feel overlooked because of your physical characteristics or the labels you wear, Jesus notices you and loves you.  When we love like Jesus, we pay attention to those that the world overlooks.

“So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.”
Luke 19:4 (NIV)

As you pray this week, ask God to help you know just how much you are noticed and loved by Him.  Pray that you would do whatever it takes to see Jesus at work around you.  Pray that the people around you would long to know Jesus.  Pray that you would learn to love everyone who might be in the process of seeking Jesus.

In prayer,
