21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 1
Andrew Chalmers / Acts 13


“Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch) and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.’ So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.” (Act 13:1-3 NIV) 
Thought of the day

This singular moment was the launch pad of Paul’s apostolic ministry. Think about it. Much of what we read in the New Testament might not have occurred without this moment of commissioning for Paul amidst worship, prayer, and fasting with other believers at Antioch.

Questions to ponder

– What does God want to do in my life through corporate worship, prayer and fasting?
– What can I do to consecrate myself to the Lord in this way? What things can I sacrifice to draw closer to Jesus?
– Can I think of any brothers or sisters in Christ who would partner with me in this journey of worship, prayer, and fasting?

“Getting to be a part of Take the City was such a blessing both in seeing how God moved in the lives of the people I met as well as how he moved in my heart. I was so encouraged to be surrounded by people willing to passionately pray for their city and the people in it. As we worshipped, people would stop and ask what was going on and we got to talk and pray with them. I felt a greater desire to pray for our nation grow in me as we sang and prayed together.”
