Acts 16:13–On the Sabbath we went outside the city gate to the river, where we expected to find a place of prayer. We sat down and began to speak to the women who had gathered there.
When Paul and Silas went to go look for the local church in the new area they were in, they went looking for a place of prayer. Would we characterize our church that way? If a stranger was looking for a house of prayer, would they be directed to our local church? Jesus called His house a house of prayer. Are we following that or have we turned His house into something else.
Father, I pray You will continue to use me to make Your house a house of prayer. I know that You desire to meet with us and that You are powerful and work through the prayers of Your people.
