with one accord in prayer and supplication." Being now in a time of transition, we also need to follow the instruction of our Lord and Savior who said, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they FOLLOW Me (John 10:27). Therefore, like the disciples of Christ, we are to wait until the Lord brings us another shepherd and the key to achieving God's blessing and direction is to wait with one accord in prayer and supplication." /> Sermon Link

Just prior to His departure into Heaven, Jesus instructed His followers to WAIT for the promise of the Father (Acts 1:4). He recognized that there would be a time of transition between His departure and the arrival of the Holy Spirit of God. Not only did Jesus instruct them to wait, He also gave them instructions as to how they were to wait. Acts 1:14 reveals how they waited - "with one accord in prayer and supplication." Being now in a time of transition, we also need to follow the instruction of our Lord and Savior who said, My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they FOLLOW Me (John 10:27). Therefore, like the disciples of Christ, we are to wait until the Lord brings us another shepherd and the key to achieving God's blessing and direction is to wait with one accord in prayer and supplication.
