And the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. Acts 11:26 (NKJV)

How would you like to have TEA with Jesus while praying the Word of God from the first Christians?  The Book of Acts tells the story of the early Christians who lived right during and after Jesus’ death and resurrection.  These disciples actually walked with Jesus, learning from Him before He died.  Others saw Him after He rose from the grave.  Others believed because of the testimony of these witnesses.  Their story is told in the Book of Acts.  Here we find some wonderful verses to use in our prayer time with Jesus.  See how these verses will help you start a conversation with Jesus as you share a CUPP of TEA today:
