This is the audio from the November 2, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“’Send the crowds away, so they can go to the villages and buy themselves some food.’ Jesus replied, ‘They do not need to go away. You give them something to eat.’”
Mathew 14:15-16 (NIV)
This week’s prayer focus is about loving others enough to help them. Helping others is not just a good idea, it is a God idea! When Jesus saw the crowds, He was often moved to compassion and chose to help in ways that were consistent with the actual need. God continually sets the example by helping us in our times of need, and did so in the ultimate way by sending His Son, Jesus, to redeem us from our greatest need.
“He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers.”
2 Corinthians 1:10-11 (NIV)
As you pray, ask God to fill you with a compassion that leads to a desire to help others. Ask God to help you to remember to pray for those who need His help. Pray that you would pay attention during your prayer time for how God would have you help others.
