“Jesus replied: ’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’” Matthew 22:37 (NIV)

The Gospel writer Luke begins his second book called Acts with a salutation to guy named Theophilus (Acts 1:1). His name means friend or lover of God! Many scholars believe Luke wasn’t merely penning a letter to one person, but to all the lovers of God.

The Book of Acts is all about the early Church starting, from the followers of Christ waiting in constant prayer, to the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, and subsequently the birth of the Church and its expanse to the nations. This book recorded a very critical, historical moment in time. We are in such a time again. 

With darkness covering the earth, even thick darkness over the peoples (Isaiah 60:2) we’re on the verge of the greatest movement ever! 

Just over a year ago we started AHOP as a vehicle to stir constant, fervent united prayer (Acts 1:14), specifically for revival. We’ve been blessed and honored to be a part of what God is doing, and building today (Psalm 127:1). 

The book of Acts is so relevant for us today. Our cry is, “As You’ve done before LORD, would You do it again, in our day, in our city, among us!” 

This Fall, on Thursday nights, we’ll be reading parts, praying and worshiping our way through the book of Acts. Each week we will focus on the next chapter. The prayer leaders and worship team will marinate themselves in the specific chapter the week coming into it. We encourage all the lovers of God to join us! Spend time reading and praying into each chapter before our gathering each Thursday night, and then come ready to pour it out before the LORD. I know the LORD has even more revelation for us, you included, as we wait for His promises (Acts 1:4). 

Please note, we have changed our times for the Fall to 6 to 8pm for our main set and 8 to 9pm for our devotional set on Thursday nights.
