This is the audio from the February 6, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.’”
1 Corinthians 11:25 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis is focused on living under a new covenant as one who is made new in Christ. The Bible teaches that the old covenant was a covenant of law designed to show mankind their need for something different. The blood of Jesus not only fulfilled all the demands of the old covenant, it became the living document of the new covenant. As you pray this week, ask God to help you learn and know the lessons taught by the old covenant. Pray that you would gaze deeply into God’s Word to discover how the blood of Jesus paid what was demanded so you could live in the freedom of a new way. Pray that you would have the desire to live in the way of the Spirit rather than the way of law. Pray that your interactions with others would reflect the nature of the new covenant as you treat others in the way God has treated you.
“He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant — not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.”
2 Corinthians 3:6 (NIV)
Pray that you would know that God has equipped you by His Spirit to not only live under the new covenant, but to serve and share in that covenant with others. Pray that you would live as one competent to share in the covenant of life.
