A Way of Life
14 They all continued praying together with some women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, and Jesus’ brothers.
42 They spent their time learning the apostles’ teaching, sharing, breaking bread and praying together.
The Lord commands us to wait for the gifts God Promises us.
Acts 1:4-5, 8
4 Once when he was eating with them, he told them not to leave Jerusalem. He said, “Wait here to receive the promise from the Father which I told you about. 5 John baptized people with water, but in a few days you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.”
8 But when the Holy Spirit comes to you, you will receive power. You will be my witnesses—in Jerusalem, in all of Judea, in Samaria, and in every part of the world.”
We are the watchmen.
6 I wait for the Lord to help me
more than night watchmen wait for the dawn,
more than night watchmen wait for the dawn.
You have my attention you are my hope.
2 You want things, but you do not have them. So you are ready to kill and are jealous of other people, but you still cannot get what you want. So you argue and fight. You do not get what you want, because you do not ask God.3 Or when you ask, you do not receive because the reason you ask is wrong. You want things so you can use them for your own pleasures.
I wait for The Lord who strengthened
14 Wait for the Lord’s help.
Be strong and brave,
and wait for the Lord’s help.
