This is the audio from the May 3, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.”
Ephesians 4:14-15 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis will be about our need to grow! When the Bible talks about our need to grow, it is most often talking about the individual Christian growing so that the body as a whole will be healthy and grow as God intends. When we spend time with God seeking to grow in Christ, we find that we are less distracted by the things the enemy will use in an attempt to keep us from maturing. When we grow in Christ, we become a healthy part of the body and as the body increases in health, it will grow both naturally and supernaturally.
“And we pray this in order that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and may please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God.”
Colossians 1:10 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you see how you need to grow. Pray that you would grow in knowledge where it counts — knowledge of God. Pray that your knowledge would help you live a life that pleases the Lord.
