from The Place Of Prayer In The Normal Christian Church Acts 2:42 And they devoted themselves to … prayer.

QUOTE #1:

QUOTE #2: “When you realize how desperately you need God’s fullness, you will want to take time to meet with Him each day. Realize, however, that finding that time will not be easy. The hymn Take Time to Be Holy [2] expresses the hardest thing about spending time with God. We will most likely never find time; we will have to take it from the other demands that crowd and press on us.

Paul Cedar, a well-known pastor and Christian leader, confessed this: I had been establishing appointments for every person and every event that was important in my life. . . . I realized that I rarely if ever scheduled an appointment with God. That recognition transformed my schedule and my prayer life. I began to schedule time alone with God every day. In fact, whenever I buy a new date book now, I always set my regular appointment with God first. . . .” [3]

THINKING IT THROUGH
What gets your attention? Why?
What is the human need or problem here?
What is that like?

SOW: What does it SAY?
What does it say that I should OBEY?
WHO needs to hear this?

What is the divine solution?
How can we visualize it?

How can we make it happen? What are the steps?
