Friday 5th April

Acts 1:8 But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.

 In the book of Acts the story starts with 120 disciples gathered together to pray, wondering what on earth was next for them now that Jesus had risen and gone to heaven. The book ends with the gospel having been spread far and wide into all the known world and with the Holy Spirit moving unhindered.

The transformation within people and cities happened by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Let’s pray today for the power of the Holy Spirit to come upon us individually and corporately that we might be sent out to our communities, to our city, to our nation and beyond!

The gospel spread out in the book of Acts in ever-widening circles and I pray that that may be the same story for us - that we may be a part of spreading the gospel in ever-widening circles by the power of the Holy Spirit that lives and cities may be transformed.
