In Acts chapter 12, we read a story where a king uses his power to try to stop the spread of the gospel and the growth of the church. The church has no power other than the power of prayer. This early group of followers, which we call “the church”, pray earnestly, pray endlessly, pray in unity, and pray expectantly.
Revival begins in the church when we surrender our will to King Jesus. It is when the church prays earnestly, endlessly, in unity and expectantly, that the Word of God spreads, the church flourishes, and the lost get saved.
I’m super keen to let these lessons become our new normal.
