Prayer Changes Things Martin Boardman

In my last article, “Stephen – Full of the Ruach HaKodesh,” we examined from Acts chapter 6 the calling of Stephen, our first Shammashim (Deacon), where the Emissaries (Twelve Apostles) recognized the need for the care of widows so that they might continue in the ministry of prayer and the Word. In their selection of Shammashim, the Emissaries foremost  recognized the necessity that not just for Shammashim, but all who serve in the Body of Messiah should be filled with  the Ruach HaKodesh so that they might fulfill their calling in ministry.

In understanding our need and calling to be immersed in the Holy Spirit and to walk in His power, today we will continue our study from Acts 4:23-31 with the reminder that “Prayer Changes Things.”

Comfort for someone who is grieving and for Yeshua to change the heart of  someone who is walking away from God’s kingdom. When we do, prayer changes things,  and the Lord is able to move in people’s lives and circumstances because we pray.
