Encouragement and Prayer: Belief That Leads To Repentance! (5/22/23)


This is the audio from the May 22, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness.”
 Genesis 15:6 (NIV)

This week’s prayer emphasis will have us praying about seeking God’s help when we experience doubt.  Because believing God, and believing in God, is based on faith, it is not unusual to experience times of uncertainty that can grow into doubt.  Even when we say we believe, an honest examination of that belief will often reveal a need for help to grow in our practice of that belief.  It has been said that we can tell what a person really believes by closely observing what they do.  While our words may say what we want to believe, our actions tend to reflect our true beliefs.  As you pray this week, ask God to help you refine and solidify what you know and believe about Him.  Pray that you would grow with God’s help in your times of disbelief.  Pray that your response to God and His Word would show those around you that you really believe what God says.  Pray that your life would reflect what you say you believe about God.  Pray for wisdom in the way you share your belief in God with others so that they too would believe.  Pray that you would not only have a belief in God, but that you would gaze into His Word and actually believe what He says.

“The time has come,” he said. “The kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the good news!”
Mark 1:15 (NIV)

Pray that you would believe God when it comes to knowing what is right and wrong.  Pray that today would be the time to know the nearness of God.  Pray for hearts that would respond in repentance to a belief in the good news about Jesus.
