Devoted to Prayer

Today's reading: Acts 1:12-26
 
After Jesus ascends to heaven, His eleven remaining disciples return to Jerusalem where they join with the women who had also served Jesus and with Jesus' brothers. When you think about the recent events this group of Christ followers had witnessed and experienced (Jesus' crucifixion, resurrection and ascension), they had to still be grappling with and recovering from the shock and the emotions of everything that had taken place. They were in unexpected and uncharted territory. So what did this dedicated group of Christ followers do after Jesus' departure? They "devoted" themselves to prayer, drawing strength from God as they pushed forward to serve Him.
 
How would you describe your prayer life? What would (or does) you being "devoted" to prayer look like? When you spend concentrated time in prayer, in what ways does it impact your day? Tami
