How real work happens

"They all joined together constantly in prayer . . . Peter
stood up . . . and said . . . 'it is necessary to choose a
man . . . to become a witness with us . . . and the lot fell
to Matthias . . ." (Acts 1:12-26)

I simply love Eugene Peterson's comment* on this
passage:
"In the middle of the prayer meeting, there was a brief
adjournment for committee work!"
Need we say more?
