This is the audio from the January 23, 2023 live social media broadcast of encouragement and prayer by Impact Prayer Ministry’s director, Tom Lemler.
“We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.”
Romans 6:4 (NIV)
This week we will focus our prayer time on living a new life as we value all life! Our relationship with God, and our view of His creation of us, greatly influences the value we place on life. Life has inherent value because it is a part of God’s creative handiwork. We can see the result of a society that rejects God — life quickly loses value because we have nothing left to base that value on. As you pray this week, ask God to help you know the great value you have as one who belongs to Him. Pray that you would live a life that has been made new in Christ. Pray about how being made new in Christ should help you to value all life. Pray that your representation of Jesus would help other know that they too can have a new life in Christ. Pray that you would value life and speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves.
“This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live.”
Deuteronomy 30:19 (NIV)
Pray that your value of life would be seen in the choices you make. Pray that the people around you would choose life for the benefit of future generations.
