Prayer Summary for February 25


Lord, we need more of You than we did yesterday
You are ever increasing and moving upon us to move further
Thank You for more of Your presence
We repent for trying to go in our own ways
Soften and mold our hearts to be more like You


The following excerpts are taken from The Revival Study Bible:

Acts 9:1–19 Saul Converted

God considers the heart and does not give up on people, even those as challenging as Saul. This man sincerely thought he was defending the faith by persecuting the fledgling Church. That ignorant but sincere zeal was misdirected and then redirected when Jesus visited the soon-to-be apostle on the road to Damascus. Blinded by the intensity of the light, and unable to see for three days, Saul needed revival. Ananias, a devout saint, was mercifully instructed to go and minister to the blind man and communicate the call of God to Saul. Ananias was originally reluctant to go, having heard of Saul’s deadly reputation, but obediently went and prayed for the waiting Saul whose sight was miraculously revived. Had this revivalist disobeyed God and resisted because of the fear of man, we might not have the largest portion of our New Testament writings.

Positioning for a Miracle
Acts 9:36–42

Dorcas, a woman of good works and charitable deeds, became sick and died. This event took place in the midst of incredible revival. The early Church was bursting at the seams. However, right in the midst of that revival came what seemed to be a tragic loss.

Dorcas was a disciple who abounded with deeds of kindness and charity.
She was a good person. Bad things can happen to good people. But the Bible tells us that “all things work together for the good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose” (Rom 8:28). In this case, Dorcas was dead.

Some of you may feel spiritually as dead as Dorcas was physically. Take comfort friend, you are in the perfect position for a miracle.

Dorcas had friends who were in revival.
They did not give up nor immediately bury her. They knew it was too late for a doctor, but not too late for Jesus. The disciples were sent for—not to attend Dorcas’ funeral, to prevent it.

Likewise, even though you may feel spiritually dead, there are intercessors, some known and many unknown, who are going after Jesus on your behalf. Do not allow yourself to be buried in the circumstances.

Dorcas came in contact with the power.
Through an anointed disciple, Dorcas was brought into contact with the resurrection power of Jesus! When she was told to get up, she responded.

You, too, must come in contact with the resurrection power of Christ. It makes no difference how one comes to Jesus, as long as the connection is made. But remember, your personal resurrection depends on your response. When Dorcas saw Peter after he told her to arise, she sat up. You must make an effort. You must get up from your resting place if you want a miracle.

Notice also, news of this miracle spread throughout her hometown, and many believed in the Lord as a result!

Scripture Focus…

(36) “Now there was at Joppa a disciple [a woman] named [in Aramaic] Tabitha, which [in Greek] means Dorcas. She was abounding in good deeds and acts of charity. (37) About that time she fell sick and died, and when they had cleansed her, they laid [her] in an upper room. (38) Since Lydda was near Joppa [however], the disciples, hearing that Peter was there, sent two men to him begging him, Do come to us without delay. (39) So Peter [immediately] rose and accompanied them. And when he had arrived, they took him to the upper room. All the widows stood around him, crying and displaying undershirts (tunics) and [other] garments such as Dorcas was accustomed to make while she was with them. (40) But Peter put them all out [of the room] and knelt down and prayed; then turning to the body he said, Tabitha, get up! And she opened her eyes; and when she saw Peter, she raised herself and sat upright. (41) And he gave her his hand and lifted her up. Then calling in God’s people and the widows, he presented her to them alive.”
(Acts 9:36–41 Amp.)
