Encouragement and Prayer: Great Joy Through the Love of Others! (12/8/22)


This is the audio from the December 8, 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.

“Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you have refreshed the hearts of the saints.”
Philemon 1:7 (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 you would know the joy that comes from the encouragement of others.  Pray that the love you express to others would fill them with great joy.  Pray that  you would share joy as your life refreshes the people around you.

In prayer,
