Prayer & the First Christians

  • by

This week, Carrie Buckner continues our community’s study of the Book of Acts by focusing on Acts 4:23-31. It’s a story about the way the first followers of Jesus gathered together after Peter and John were questioned by the Sanhedrin and ordered by them to no longer speak or teach about Jesus. We see the early church prioritize prayer in the face of opposition. Their first impulse was not to strategize, but to pray. It’s an indication of the early church’s dependence on Jesus and it’s an insight into how we can approach prayer today.
