Eat and Pray

Re:Verse passage – Acts 2:42-47 (day two) 

Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart, vs. 46

Breaking bread is mentioned twice in this passage that we are studying. It is likely that one referred to the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper, and the other to simply spending time together at a dinner table. Don’t you find it easier to pray for people that you spend time with? Isn’t it more natural to lift up needs of others that you have had an opportunity to actually hear their heart? Is there a better activity to get to know others than eating a meal together? And, hey, it’s food! In a church like ours which represents a very large geographic area, it is incumbent on us to find ways to get to know our brothers and sisters, so that we may better pray for them. You don’t need to wait for an Area Fellowship. Everybody eats, find a friend, share a meal, and pray.
