And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples (Acts 19:1)
Lord Jesus, send your apostolic ministers among us.
he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” (Acts 19:2)
Jesus, so many of your people have not so much as heard that there is a Holy Spirit, and if they have, his name is just tacked onto the end of prayers but there is no personal meaning for them.
And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.” Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.” (Acts 19:3-4)
Father, I pray that your people will go on beyond repentance to the refreshing power of your Holy Spirit and become intimate with Jesus.
When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied. Now the men were about twelve in all. (Acts 19:5-7)
A word received: Pray for the shepherds of my people.
Holy Spirit, move the hearts of your shepherds to lay hands on the people in their flock so that your power is released in them and they prophesy and speak in tongues. Holy Spirit, bring your people into an intimate relationship with Jesus.
