Devoted to Prayer


Christians talk a lot about prayer. How many people do you know, who you would identify as people who are devoted to prayer? Churches are good at doing, but often not as good at being. In Acts 1 after Jesus ascended into Heaven upon the conclusion of his earthly ministry, the disciples went to the upper room where they were staying.

Acts 1:14 “All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer, together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.”

Followers of Jesus continually devoted themselves to prayer, and they experienced the power of God when the Holy Spirit came upon them at Pentecost. A pitfall for all of us is to have a form of godliness but deny its power. I want the godliness and the power. My prayer is we would not be satisfied as the body of Christ with going through the motions, but that we would be desperate for God and experience his power in a renewed way in this generation. Make it so Lord!
