This is the audio from the April 12, 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.
“If we have been united with him like this in his death, we will certainly also be united with him in his resurrection.”
Romans 6:5 (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 that your confidence in the power of the resurrection would never waiver. Pray that your obedience to being united with Christ in His death would give you a certainty in being united with Him in His resurrection. Pray that your certainty of the resurrection would encourage others.
