Day 5 of our 40 Day prayer journey!

Day 5


SPIRIT EMPOWERED

When Jesus went back to heaven to be with His Father, He didn’t leave His disciples powerless or alone. They would receive His Holy Spirit. This incredible gift gave them boldness which they didn’t have before and empowered them to be His witnesses throughout the world, leading many to become disciples of Jesus. They were not working in their own strength, but under the guidance and in the strength of God, through the presence of His Holy Spirt.

Pray today that God’s Holy Spirit would give you boldness and empower you to be His witness! Pray that through your witness people would come to know Jesus and desire to live for Him. Pray that God would take the fear out of your heart which often accompanies the thought of talking to others about Jesus. Pray that he gives you opportunities today to practice this new boldness.


Acts 1:8

“But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come on you, and you will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”


Acts 4:29-32

“But Peter and the apostles replied, “We must obey God rather than men. The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you had murdered by hanging Him on a tree. God exalted this man to His right hand as ruler and Savior, to grant repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him.”
