Acts 9:40 KJV “But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.
Oh, how much more the Father can use me if I have alone time with him. It is good to pray with others BUT its on another level, deeper, when I have alone time with the Father. When I read this text at first I was confused. So I had to go back a little bit, v 26-43, in order to get the full story and what caught my attention is:
- Tabitha was a disciple and was a female.
- Tabitha was dead.
- Peter put those who were around the body out.
- When Peter told Tabitha to arise she looked at him.
- Once she saw him then she got up.
Peter secluded himself, prayed, called something into existence, Tabitha saw, and then arose. So there is ‘power’ in prayer. If I spend time doing it. Where I spend my time is what is important to me and will show forth.
