This is the audio from the January 13, 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.
“We know that anyone born of God does not continue to sin; the one who was born of God keeps him safe, and the evil one cannot harm him.”
1 John 5:18 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you live as one who is new. Pray that you would live with the protection of God in a world filled with sin. Pray that your pursuit of protection would always be mindful of how God has provided spiritual armor for your use. Pray that your spiritual protection would be of even more importance than a physical protection.
