This is the audio from the April 11, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead.”
Philippians 3:10-11 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will focus on knowing and living by the power of the resurrection. As we celebrate the resurrection of Jesus, the magnificence of the event and what it accomplished can often overshadow how it was accomplished. Paul understood that it was in the fellowship with the sufferings of Christ that he would know more of the power of the resurrection.
“With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all.”
Acts 4:33 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you know the power of the resurrection in a way that gives you the courage to grow through the fellowship of suffering. Pray for the courage to testify of the resurrection of Jesus. Pray that you would live life in such a way that you are a testimony of the transformational power of the resurrection. Pray that your testimony of the resurrection would result in much grace.
