Jesus and the Coronavirus (Day 20)

Pray Until Something Happens

Charles Spurgeon once said “I would rather teach one man to pray than ten men to preach”.
Imagine what our church could look like if we all embraced a devotion to prayer. The early disciples knew that prayer was how they could converse with God, and how the teachings they heard went from their head into their hearts and settled there. It can be the same for us.
Prayer is powerful. Prayer is intimate. Prayer changes things. Prayer changes us. Any relationship requires communication, and prayer is the gift that God has given to us to commune with Him. In our second passage today, we see how prayer stirred the disciples to share the Gospel. Prayer is not only relational; it is also missional. 
It’s easy to feel in times like this, where the need of the world is so obvious, that we shouldn’t come to God in praying for our personal needs. If that’s how you are feeling, be mindful of this today: Our God is the God of the Universe. Not a single word of our prayers falls on deaf ears. He wants to spend time with you. He wants to hear from you.
As a Christian today, commit yourself again to prayer. Make it your first priority rather than your last resort. As Corrie Ten Boom asked: "Is prayer your steering wheel or your spare tire?"
