Acts 1:12-26.

We can’t ignore or fail to notice the central place of prayer in the early church – it’s mentioned in almost all of the 28 chapters in Acts!

Justin Welby once stated that “When we are retuned in prayer we are transformed so that we can transform the world”.

That’s the purpose and authority we have been gifted with as church – to be transformational. We can’t do it without prayer. Prayer was the first priority for the early church after the ascension of Jesus, and it remained a key priority. How do we compare?
