TEXT: ACTS 3:1-19
MEMORY VERSE: MATTHEW 18:19
Union with prayer partner – A notable miracle took place at the beautiful gate of the temple, through Peter and John, after the disciples of Christ were baptized in the Holy ghost. Holy Ghost speaks language of unity. Here he passed through the unity of the two men of prayer (peter and John) and moved a man that was lame from his mothers womb to walk.
The man no knowledge of power that is in the name of Jesus, he demanded gift from Peter and John, little knowing that they had more than ordinary gift. Here Peter and John fastening their eyes on him said “look on us” the man did as the prayer warriors said expecting to receive something from them. Here Peter said
Silver and gold have I none, but such I have give I thee: in the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up an walk.ACTS 3:6
Here Peter took him by his right hand and lifted him up as Holy Ghost moved him to do, immediately hi feet and ankles bones received strength. The man rose up and began to walk and entered into the temple with them. Such is the first miracle that took place after the disciples were baptized in the Holy ghost on the day of Pentecost.
Holy Ghost the best teacher in the school of prayer, teaches men of prayer to pray concurrently and move diverse mountains, whereby personal prayer can not make.
Men of prayer must work hard, take to every good work, let go sleep at the hour of prayer, pray by leadership of Holy Ghost, pray with all their strength and spiritual dynamo, pray according to God’s word, hold fast faith, pray according to spiritual instruction and do all things in time as Peter and John went into the house of God to pray at the hour of prayer. Sleeping at the hour of prayer speaks disunity with prayer partner. Do not sleep as Peter, John and James did at the hour of prayer and disappointed Jesus Matthew 26:37-45. Prayer is cross and war. The Bible says
And being in agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drop of blood falling down to the ground.LUKE 22:44
Such is the spirit of unity in the field of prayer. You must have unspeakable burden to pray and move mountains like Jesus. The prayer partner must have vision, pray with one mind and by leadership of Holy Ghost.
NOTE: Making friend with a man of prayer and praying many times with the prayer warrior is union with prayer partner.
