Pray for Missionaries Passage: Acts 5:12-16, with focus on v. 14
Now many signs and wonders were regularly done among the people by the hands of the apostles. And they were all together in Solomon’s Portico. None of the rest dared join them, but the people held them in high esteem. And more than ever believers were added to the Lord, multitudes of both men and women, so that they even carried out the sick into the streets and laid them on cots and mats, that as Peter came by at least his shadow might fall on some of them. The people also gathered from the towns around Jerusalem, bringing the sick and those afflicted with unclean spirits, and they were all healed.

As the apostles continued their journey, God gave them extraordinary abilities to prophesy, heal people, and remove evil spirits.  The news of this spread near and far.  People were coming from all around to see the work of God through these disciples.  It was time like no other.  A new work was being accomplished, and people had to see for themselves.  

This reminds me of missionary stories I’ve read and heard throughout the years.  Historically, when God begins to work in a new area, word spreads, and people are curious.  They come from all over to see and hear of God’s work.  In our modern world, not much amazes us anymore.  I pray for the wonder of days gone by and being surprised by the miraculous.  While we don’t live in that time, we still have the same power the disciples and missionaries from long ago had.  In our renewed wonder, pray God would give you the desire to share this with others in order that you might see a harvest like Peter and his companions did.
