A Special Invitation to 10 Days of Prayer
Jonathan Friz writes: Before the first Pentecost, our Lord told his disciples to wait for His empowering in Jerusalem. They obeyed, and sought God in united prayer together with 120 others. At the end of 10 days, the Spirit descended and the Church was born.
This year, God is inviting us to do it again--to wait for Him for 10 days in united prayer, just as the apostles and 120 did so long ago. This time, He has not given us any promises about what He will do, He simply asks us, "Come, seek Me." I ask you, paraphrasing the words of Zechariah, "Let's go at once to seek the Lord of hosts--I am going, will you come too?" (Zec. 8:21).
