Scripture Focus…

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. (2) For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, (3) Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, (4) Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; (5) Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
(2 Timothy 3:1-5 KJV)

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. (43) And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles. (44) And all that believed were together, and had all things common; (45) And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need. (46) And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, (47) Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
(Acts 2:42-47 KJV)


The following excerpt is taken from Secrets of Answered Prayer by Lester Sumrall:

“And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42).

“And in prayers.” That became the watchword of the first-century church-prayer. What was the result of all this?

Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved (Acts 2:43-47).

Jesus had taught His disciples well. He had given them His model prayer. Then He had trained them to go out to teach and preach, to cast out demons. He had taught them how to pray. And they remembered. After He had taught them for forty days after His resurrection, He told them the Holy Spirit would come upon them in just a few days.

“Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received him out of their sight” (Acts 1:9). For the next ten days the disciples prayed with one accord. “These all continued…in prayer” (Acts 1:14). No wonder there was such a harvest of souls during those first few days after the church was born.

Acts of the Apostles/Holy Spirit

That harvest continued. They prayed; God answered.

They prayed; men were healed. They prayed; God sent them unto the uttermost parts of the earth to tell the good news that Jesus was the resurrected Messiah. Throughout the book of Acts (which really should be called the Acts of the Holy Spirit, because of the way the Holy Spirit moved through the lives of those disciples), God honored His word, and miracles happened.

The Acts of the Apostles/Holy Spirit go on, providing a book that will never be finished or closed. Those heroic men and women made church history and provided a model for the present-day church. God did it then. He will do it again, when we learn to pray as they did.

Those early believers “continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers” (Acts 2:42). They enjoyed the company of other believers. They went to the temple together. They went from house to house sharing the Word and building up each other in the most holy faith. They fellowshipped together. They ate together. They partook of the Lord’s Supper together. They listened to the apostles’ doctrine together – the teaching, the ministry of the Twelve.

And they prayed together.

Prayer brought predictable results: “Then those who gladly received his word” (Acts 2:41) were a joyful bunch of people, as all believers ought to be. Here’s a principle you can count on: Where there’s joy in serving the Lord, there will be power. And these people were so joyful and happy that thousands were drawn to hear the message.

The devil often tells prospective believers, “If you become a Christian, you won’t have any fun. You’ll have to wear a long face and be sad all the time.” But these are lies. I have discovered that Christians are the happiest people on earth. This was evidently the case as described in this Scripture before us, because joyful, happy believers transmitted their joy to others who then “gladly received” (Acts 2:41) the Good News and became themselves partakers of the faith of Jesus.

This multitude of joyful people was baptized in one day and was added to the growing number of followers of the Messiah!

In my ministry, I’ve seen plenty of sad sinners. I’ve seen them in jails and prisons, in brothels and mental institutions, in night clubs and in gambling houses. Yes, there is plenty of sadness in the hearts of those who follow the devil.

But those who love the Lord are filled with gladness. “He has put a new song in my mouth. Praise to our God” (Ps. 40:3). And prayer in the early church had a strong place in bringing this new joy and “new song” to pass in others.
