Be Careful What You Pray For

Acts 4:23-31
Horton Road Church of Christ
February 28, 2010
Are we a church that prays
or a praying church?
The early church was a praying
church

They were constantly in prayer (Acts 1:14)


They prayed over leadership decisions (1:24, 6:6)
They were devoted to prayer (2:42)
Their leaders set the example of prayer (3:1)
The early church
experienced prayer
How to experience prayer

Pray together (Acts 4:24)


Pray to our Sovereign Lord (4:24)
Pray for boldness to speak the word (4:29)
Pray for God to move in our world (4:30)
Pray so God makes himself known (4:31)
Do we believe God answers our
prayers?
God filled them with his Spirit and shook them
(Acts 4:31)
God enabled them to speak with boldness (4:33)
God worked his grace among them (4:33-34)
Will we be merely a church that prays
or
will we become a praying church
that lives, breathes, and exists
through prayer?
