Acts 9:11 So the Lord said to him, “Arise and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for one called Saul of Tarsus, for behold, he is praying.”
Paul as a new believer made prayer priority. God made it very clear to Ananias of what he will find Paul doing, and that is praying. Paul as a new believer did not go right into preaching, serving in a local church, being involved in things, even though all these are important. The first thing he did was became a praying man. He who had a heavenly vision was blind for a season and had to be led. Prayers became his spiritual eyes and strength in his weak and vulnerable times.
The first mission the church ought to train the new believers is to pray. It was Charles Spurgeon, the prince of preachers who said he would rather teach ONE man to PRAY than TEN men to PREACH. That is how important prayer is, it is the nucleus that holds all things together. Jesus said His house shall be called a house of prayer (Mat 21:13). All believers should make PRAYERS the BEDROCK of their beings, that in prayers you live, and move and have your being.
