One of the distinguishing marks of the early church was its dedication to prayer. The early church exercised prayer in light of who God is, what He has done, and what He has promised to do. Included in God’s ordination of all things, He has ordained the means of prayer to accomplish His purposes. It is vital that we do not grow complacent toward prayer; it is through prayer we procure strength against evil.
42And they devoted themselves to the apostles' teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers.
