This is the audio from the February 7, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, ‘This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.’”
1 Corinthians 11:25 (NIV)
This week’s prayer emphasis is focused on living under a new covenant as one who is made new in Christ. The Bible teaches that the old covenant was a covenant of law designed to show mankind their need for something different. The blood of Jesus not only fulfilled all the demands of the old covenant, it became the living document of the new covenant.
“And if what was fading away came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts!”
2 Corinthians 3:11 (NIV)
As you pray this week, ask God to help you learn and know the lessons taught by the old covenant. Pray that the fading glory which exists in this world would cause you to consider the greater glory of that which is eternal. Pray that the things of temporary glory would not distract you from seeing that which is greater. Pray for a growing desire to pursue that which is better.
