Encouragement and Prayer: Great Joy That Spreads! (12/7/22)


This is the audio from the December 7, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.”
Matthew 2:10 (NKJV)

This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on living with great joy.  Many times it is the intensity of our longing or search for something that is reflected in the joy we are able to express.  Our seeking of God ought to fill us with great joy because He promises to be found when we seek Him with our whole heart.

“So there was great joy in that city.”
Acts 8:8 (NIV)

As you pray this week, join with the Magi in rejoicing “with exceedingly great joy” because you have experienced the light of Jesus in your life.  Pray that the work of God in your life would help there to be great joy all around you.  Pray that your community would experience great joy as the people embrace the transforming power of God to rescue them.  Pray that you would be involved in bringing the joy of Jesus to your city.
