Encouragement and Prayer: Submit to God! (12/23/22)


This is the audio from the December 23, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“’I am the Lord’s servant,’ Mary answered. ‘May it be to me as you have said.’ Then the angel left her.”
Luke 1:38 (NIV)

This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on living submissively as the Lord’s servant.  I suspect that many of us struggle with the idea of submission because it can be difficult to put the needs of others ahead of our own.  I believe it is often even difficult to submit to God because we tend to like the idea of being completely in charge of our self . . . and even of others.

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”
James 4:7 (NIV)

As you pray this week, consider what it will look like in every situation to say yes to God.  Pray that you would submit to God in all things so that the devil has no foothold in your life.  Pray for a growing desire to submit to God even when doing so seems difficult.  Pray that your submission to God would help you to stand firm in resisting the attacks of the enemy.

You can find the live video feeds of these encouragement and prayer times on Impact Prayer Ministry’s Facebook page.

In prayer,
