The Power of Prayer




Acts 1:12-14; 4:23-31               December 27, 2015              Link for audio/video/manuscript 

The church exists as a consequence of the passion and boldness those in the first church had for the risen Christ. While we may not know when Jesus will return, we do know some things. We know that God answers prayer. We know that God powerfully answers the obedient, constant, unified prayers of His people. We do know that when we pray, God changes people and things. We do know that when God changes people and things – that He will do new and unexpected things. We do know that when we pray, God will change us and He will do new and unexpected things in our hearts and lives. And we also know that when God answers obedient, constant and unified prayer – He will do so in a way that will “shake the places we are gathered.” May we pray bold prayers to God that He might give us the power of His Spirit to be a bold people for Jesus!
