  6. Acts 2:42(NIV) “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”

  7. What was the church doing before the Holy Spirit came upon them? Acts 1:14(NIV) “They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers.”

  8. Peter and John told to stop preaching the gospel… Acts 4:23(NIV) “On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said to them. 24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together inprayer to God.”

  9. Peter arrested and put into prison – Angel frees him… Acts 12:12(NIV) “When this had dawned on him, he went to the house of Mary the mother of John, also called Mark, where many people had gathered and were praying.”

  10. Jesus purges the temple of the money changers … Isaiah 56:7(NIV) “…these I will bring to my holy mountain and give them joy in my house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and sacrifices will be accepted on my altar; for my house will be called a house of prayer for all nations.”

  11. James 5:13-16 (NIV) 13 Is any one of you in trouble? He should pray. Is anyone happy? Let him sing songs of praise. 14 Is any one of you sick? He should call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord. 15 And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise him up. If he has sinned, he will be forgiven. 16 Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
