This is the audio from the September 26, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.”
Ephesians 4:15 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on loving with truth as we continue a series about being loved by Jesus so we can love like Jesus. When we know the truth of God’s Word, we are prepared to speak that truth to others. Truth is important to God and therefore ought to be important to us as his children. The way we love people, especially those who may be labeled by society as outcasts, ought to be centered in the truth of God’s love for them. As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow into a fullness of His truth. Pray that the truth of God’s love for you would fully shape the way you love others. Pray that you would not sacrifice truth to the gods of convenience, expediency, favor, or political correctness. In living and speaking truth, pray that you would always do so in love.
“LORD, who may dwell in your sanctuary? Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart.”
Psalm 15:1-2 (NIV)
Pray that your love for God and people would guide the way you speak truth. Pray that you would be one who always speaks truth because that is what resides within you. Pray that the people around you would know God’s love through the truth you speak.
