Acts 1:14 They all joined together constantly in prayer. . .
We are constantly in spiritual warfare. We live in a culture where gun sales are steadily increasing. This is, of course, a result of the ongoing civil unrest in this country. It has been reported that U.S. gun sales in the first four months of 2021 surged 31% to 15,966,389. People are very much concerned about the safety of their families. As they should be. However, as believers in Christ Jesus we must be mindful that we are to cast all our cares upon Him (1 Peter 5:7). Prayer should be our first priority. Our weapon against any and every situation we encounter in life is prayer. It has been given to us; it is a gift. Prayer is simply communicating with God. The disciples continued in constant prayer while gathered together awaiting the promise of the Father. At the appointed time, God answered. They received the Holy Spirit. We read in Luke 18:1 man ought to always pray and not faint. Make prayer a priority each day. Prayer can change you, your family, your situation and your enemy. We do not have to be defeated when we have prayer as our spiritual weapon. Continue in constant prayer! And watch God work it out!
