21 Days of Prayer 2022
Read Luke 5:15–16; Acts 1:12–14; Acts 2:37–42. Notice who is praying and under what circumstances.
Luke 5:15-16 (CSB)
15But the news about him spread even more, and large crowds would come together to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses. 16Yet he often withdrew to deserted places and prayed.
Acts 1:12-14 (CSB)
12Then they returned to Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives, which is near Jerusalem — a Sabbath day’s journey away. 13When they arrived, they went to the room upstairs where they were staying: Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, and Judas the son of James. 14They all were continually united in prayer, along with the women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers.
Acts 2:37-42 (CSB)
37When they heard this, they were pierced to the heart and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Brothers, what should we do?”
38Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, each of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39For the promise is for you and for your children, and for all who are far off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” 40With many other words he testified and strongly urged them, saying, “Be saved from this corrupt generation!” 41So those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day about three thousand people were added to them.
A Generous and Growing Church
42They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching, to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread, and to prayer.
