This is the audio from the January 19, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.”
Romans 7:6 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will be about living as those who follow a new way in Christ. In fact, the first century Christians were so focused on following Jesus as “the Way, the Truth, and the Life”, that they were simply known to their opposition as followers of “The Way”. When we experience a new birth in Christ, we find that we have been called into a new way of thinking, seeing, and doing.
“Young men, in the same way be submissive to those who are older. All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another.”
1 Peter 5:5 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you live as one who has been called into a new way. Pray for the humility necessary to live in a submissive way. Pray that your submissiveness to God would direct how you learn and practice a submission to one another. Pray that God would lead you in submission as you learn from the example of Jesus.
