    The book of acts reveals Christs expectations of the apostles and in so doing us .
    Sadly today I recall the words stated that many , in fact most don't know God . Superficially we know but not as the apostles and Moses did . Seems that prayer and fasting are lacking and as those apostles who came together to seek out gods instruction for them we must do the same .
