A person posed a question to me recently. This person asked, “What if the church prayed with the same fervor as those who waited for what Jesus called ‘The promise of the Father.’” The apostles and 120 believers gathered in a common place and prayed for this unknown gift for 40 days after Jesus resurrection.
Acts 2 tells us that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit like a mighty rushing wind. Those same disciples who ran like scared rabbits the night Jesus was arrested, became bold as lions after they had received the outpoured Holy Spirit. Peter preached one sermon and 3,000 were added to the believers in one day.
When we look at the things going on around us today in our world, I think we need that same Holy Spirit to pour forth on us, like on the day of Pentecost. What do you think?

I believe you are asking the right questions. I pray for this outpouring and for God’s perfect will!
Thanks for your comments, pendancingjan.
Hi Sally there is only one way to receive the Holy Spirit , it’s the same as God’s Love and wisdom, so then how do we receive The Holy Spirit ……
Jesus said we don’t have because we don’t ask and He also said ask and we will receive and we do ask because we believe in Him and have heart repentance.
Luke 11:13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?
