Acts 1:12-26 (使徒行伝 1:14)

“彼らはみな、婦人たち、特にイエスの母マリヤ、およびイエスの兄弟たちと共に、心を合わせて、ひたすら祈をしていた。” (使徒行伝 1:14)


“They all met together and were constantly united in prayer…” (Acts 1:14 NLT)

The disciples were waiting for the Holy Spirit. And in the meantime they had a big decision to make: who would replace Judas Iscariot as one of the 12 apostles.

But they didn’t just wait. And they didn’t just make a snap decision. They prayed. And it wasn’t just a quick, thoughtless prayer like we often pray before a meal. It says here they were constantly united in prayer.

I’m reminded today of the importance of prayer. May we not act too quickly or wait prayerlessly. If we want His presence and power in our lives, we need to pray.
