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?



My experience with the Take the City crew was like coming into a family.  Our team was welcomed in with open arms with like-hearted believers who love Jesus and have laid down their lives to serve the broken of the city! It was an honor to come alongside them, be welcomed into their homes, share meals, and experience the transformational work that God is doing in and through them to see His Kingdom come.
