Encouragement and Prayer: Born To Overcome! (1/12/23)


This is the audio from the January 12, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“In reply Jesus declared, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.’”
John 3:3 (NIV)

This week’s prayer emphasis will be about living as those who have experienced a new birth in Christ.  Just as a natural birth is expected to result in growth and maturity, a spiritual birth is the beginning of a new life in Christ.  God’s desire is that those who are born of the Spirit would live by the Spirit.  When we live as those who are born again, we do so in a way that reflects the very nature of the One who has given us birth.

“Everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.”
1 John 5:4 (NIV)

 As you pray this week, ask God to help you live as one who is new.  Pray for a patient endurance that helps you to see how you can be an overcomer in Christ.  Pray for a confidence in Christ that helps you to see beyond the daily struggles of life.  Pray that your faith in Jesus would help you to live in the victory that is found in Christ.
