Prayers kept them focused as a group upon God's presence. As they offered prayers, petitions and intercession, they were able to hear His will for their lives.
If only these same elements were always present in church life today!

祷告者让他们为上帝所关注。当他们祷告,请愿,说情时,他们也能听到上帝对他们人生的期望。

要是当今的教堂有这些多好啊!

As a new believer, you may or may not have an existing relationship with a church fellowship. Or, you may be in a church that falls far short of being the right place for you. Sadly, many churches seem spiritually dead. Some are making serious mistakes. But you can boldly ask God to bring you together with the individuals and groups He desires for you. He knows your needs, and knows with whom you ought to be connected.

作为一个新的教徒,你可能已经跟教友建立关系,你也可能还没有跟教友建立关系。或者,你所在的教堂离你很远,附近没有适合你的教堂。令人难过的是,很多教堂看似死气沉沉。一些教堂严重犯错。但是,你可勇敢地要求上帝指引你到他需要你联系的教友或教会。他了解你的需求,他知悉你应跟谁联系。

He may direct you into a format that is "unconventional." For many years our family met "from house to house" with several other families. Our children were enthusiastically involved, and the essential elements of the early church noted above were present. In many areas of the world, thousands of new churches are forming, growth is taking place and dynamic fellowship is occurring.

他可直接指引你进入“非传统”的方式。很多年来,我们家跟其他教友以轮流做东的方式聚会。我们的孩子也很热情地融入其中。这种早期教会的存在形式现在还存在。在世界很多地方,成千上万新教堂不断涌现出来,并不断成长壮大,形成动态的教友关系。

Jesus is intent on this kind of growth. He said, "I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (Hell) shall not prevail against it" (Matthew 16:18). Jesus' church is not in retreat, not barely getting by, not just going through the motions. Jesus' church is healthy, vibrant and strategic. He wants you to be in such a church.

耶稣想要这样的成长壮大,他说,我将建造教堂,地狱之门应让位与它(马太福音 章节 16:18).耶稣的教堂不是归隐处,不是得过且过,混日子的地方,也不是装模作样走过场的地方。耶稣的教堂是健康的,充满活力和策略的。他想你在这样的教堂。
