Acts 6:4–But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word. (NASB)
Here a few reflections on prayer from my current studies:
- Prayer is a ministry priority. (See Acts 6:4)
- Prayer is a noble ministry. When we pray, we stand with Paul and the Apostles, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. They were all devoted to prayer. (See Acts 6:4, Colossians 1:9, Hebrews 7:24-25, and Romans 8:26-27).
Prayer is a powerful ministry. It is prayer that leads to boldness, power and opportunities in the advance of the gospel. (see 1 John 5:14-15; Acts 4:23-31; Ephesians 6:18-20 and Colossians 4:2-4)
I hope these refelections will encourage you to pray.
