“There on the beach we knelt to pray.”
- Acts 21:5
Do you have an unusual, even strange place where you pray to the Lord?
In Acts 21, you read that Paul and the disciples took a moment to pray on the beach before he departed from Tyre. It’s important to remember that first century Christians, for the most part, met in homes or in borrowed rooms. They had no church buildings or cathedrals. They studied, worshiped and prayed where they could...when they could.
Prayer is a conversation with God. It’s not an event to be confined to any one location. Since God is in all places at all times, He is with you and will hear you...whether you’re in a church, on the beach, in the car driving down the street, or in some other unusual place. So next time you feel led by God to pray for the Troops and the nation, don’t worry about where you’re at physically. Obediently and immediately engage your spiritual self and intercede…knowing you can pray anytime, anywhere – and the Lord will listen to your cry and answer you.
