Encouragement and Prayer: Conversation That Is Full Of Grace! (05/20/22)

This is the audio from the May 20, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” 
2 Corinthians 12:9 (NIV)

Our Lifestyle of Prayer emphasis this week will focus on the topic of Grace!  Grace is an incredible gift from God that goes beyond us simply not getting the punishment we deserve, but it is God giving us a gift we don’t deserve — a gift only He can give.  Grace not only covers our weaknesses, it reveals the very nature of God through our weaknesses.

“Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.”
Colossians 4:6 (NIV)

As you pray this week, pray that God’s grace would draw you to Him as you look to Him in your time of need.  Pray that the words you use would always be filled with the grace of God.  Pray for wisdom to answer people with a grace that comes from God.  Pray that the people around you would have a glimpse of God’s grace through what you say.

Encouragement and Prayer: Accept Differently! (05/13/22)

This is the audio from the May 13, 2022 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.

“We do not dare to classify or compare ourselves with some who commend themselves. When they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are not wise.” 
2 Corinthians 10:12 (NIV)

Our “Lifestyle of Prayer” emphasis this week will focus on living as those who are becoming different.  Different than what we were, different from one another, and  different from the world.  The Bible uses the words unique and peculiar to describe the children of God, yet how often do we seek to blend in rather than become who God wants us to be?

“If anyone is confident that he belongs to Christ, he should consider again that we belong to Christ just as much as he.”
2 Corinthians 10:7 (NIV)

As you pray this week, ask God to help you grow in maturity as you allow Him to transform every aspect of your life.  Pray that you would grow in understanding how fully Christ has accepted you.  Pray that your confidence in belonging to Christ would direct how you accept one another.  Pray that the walls of division would crumble as you learn to accept differently.
