This is the audio from the May 23, 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.
“Immediately the boy’s father exclaimed, ‘I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!’”
Mark 9:24 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you refine and solidify what you know and believe about Him. Pray that you would be aware of both your strengths and weaknesses in the area of believing God. Pray that your desire to believe would not keep you from admitting times of unbelief. Pray that you would always call out to God for help in growing through any areas of unbelief.
