Sermon, Prayer that changed history, Seven brief studies of prayer

Study overview

One of the most dominant features of the New Testament church was that they prayed.

  • Following the ascension of Jesus, the followers of Jesus were left in Jerusalem without Jesus' physical presence, but spiritually they were still in contact with him because they prayed.
  • When the disciples were selecting the replacement for Judas they prayed. The decision was too great to make by themselves.
  • Following Peter's sermon on Pentecost that resulted in many new believers, they were instructed in spiritual growth tools. Among those tools was prayer.
  • Prayer was such a way of life that they took time out each day, even in the afternoons, to spend time in prayer to God.
  • Prayer was so important to the apostles that they set aside other servants to care for the physical needs of the widows, so they could spend extended periods of time in prayer.
Do you see the picture?
  • Prayer is not some function tacked on at the end of a service.
  • It is not an agenda item that if we get to it then we will pray.

  2. Prayer Brings God to Us, Acts 4:24
