After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the word of God boldly.
The prayer had special power (see v.33) because it was made by the whole church, together in appeal for the progress of the gospel. The building may not shake today, but we will be moved to effectiveness if we pray with one heart and mind, united in witness to Gods way of service.
