Get Ready
When a persons prays regularly
The more you pray.. the bigger you dream
Acts 10:3–4 KJV 1900
He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God.
Prayer produces
An unexpected encounter
An angel of God
The angel knew him
The Angel called him by name
An unexpected time
An unexpected announcement
It was all about a memorial of prayer.

On the … of the air.

Acts 10:9–12 KJV 1900
On the morrow, as they went on their journey, and drew nigh unto the city, Peter went up upon the housetop to pray about the sixth hour: And he became very hungry, and would have eaten: but while they made ready, he fell into a trance, And saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air.
When two people prayer

But Peter said, … common or unclean.

Acts 10:14 KJV 1900
But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean.
God called him to more....He said not so
If we win the argument with God...we loose
But if we loose the argument with God...we win
Acts 10:17–20 KJV 1900
Now while Peter doubted in himself what this vision which he had seen should mean, behold, the men which were sent from Cornelius had made inquiry for Simon’s house, and stood before the gate, And called, and asked whether Simon, which was surnamed Peter, were lodged there. While Peter thought on the vision, the Spirit said unto him, Behold, three men seek thee. Arise therefore, and get thee down, and go with them, doubting nothing: for I have sent them.
Why would Peter doubt?

5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:

Faith is taking the first step before knowing any other step.
Acts 10:5-8
5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter:
6 He lodgeth with one Simon a tanner, whose house is by the sea side: he shall tell thee what thou oughtest to do.
7 And when the angel which spake unto Cornelius was departed, he called two of his household servants, and a devout soldier of them that waited on him continually;
8 And when he had declared all these things unto them, he sent them to Joppa.
