Prayer that Produces Boldness I Daily Walk Devotion
Earthquakes are no fun to experience. Afterward, you may nervously laugh and talk about feeling the ground move. During the quake, you are freaked out because you are at the mercy of your surroundings. You hope the building you are in is safe or the road you are driving on stays intact. The early church experienced the earthquake because of a prayer meeting. They show us how to have prayer that produces boldness.

‭Acts‬ ‭4:31‬
“When they had prayed, the place where they were assembled was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God boldly.”

Preorder Pastor Chuck’s New Devotional
There were some pretty amazing things that happened in the first-century church. One of them is this prayer meeting. Peter and John were released from custody after healing the lame man and preaching at Solomon’s Porch. They join the other believers who were praying for them, and the Holy Spirit decided to visit in a powerful way. As they prayed together, the house was physically shaken. Prayer has the ability to move both the physical and spiritual world.

Be Filled with the Spirit
They were all filled with the Holy Spirit. This shouldn’t surprise us except that most of the people there had been filled already at Pentecost. What this shows us is that we need the constant filling of the Spirit as we walk with Christ. Evangelist D.L. Moody used to say that we need to be continually filled because we leak. To live for Christ, we have to do it with the power of the Holy Spirit. Too many Christians are running around on fumes and not the full potential.

Pray for Boldness
We can’t expect to boldly preach the Gospel unless we are topped off. We might be able to muster the courage under our own power, but we will go without the anointing. The first-century church was so effective in spreading the Gospel because they worked under the power of the Holy Spirit. Don’t start your day without asking God to fill you with the Holy Spirit. He might do a mighty work in your life, and he might even move mountains.
