Acts 9:10-12

“God is powerful and sovereign in directing events in the life of men. However, His people should not overlook the passive role personal prayer plays in the unfolding of these events.”


The Power of the Sovereign God

  • His actions in nature
  • His actions among people
  • His actions beyond religious institutions

Job 42:1, 2; Daniel 4:26; Mark 4:41; Acts 8:26; Ephesians 3:20

The Power of Personal Prayer

  • Causes a shift in priorities
  • Compels God to pay close attention
  • Creates a supernatural awareness of God’s activity
  • Crystallises God’s choices for the greatest and most thrilling adventure in human history.
