David explodes with stunning clarity in Psalm 19, describing the ways God has made Himself known and how valuable it is to us.
IN THE HEAVENS
Look at the VERBS David uses to describe God's self-disclosure through nature (verses 1-4):
Just open you eyes and ears on any common day and you will see and hear God! He is there for the knowing!
IN THE WORD
But there's more in this Psalm that makes any man foolish who lamely says God has not made Himself known to us. Look at the ADJECTIVES that describe God's word and the VERBS that describe what His word does (verses 7-11):
What marvelous self-disclosure...that God would make himself known to man with such completeness, such convenience and availability. Why would we not open our eyes, and ears, and minds every single day and let Him in?

… with most of us modern Christians is that we are stoppable. A little discomfort, a turn from our desired daily routine, or a little resistance from those to whom we’re witnessing throws us off. We have not settled the issue that our greatest joy and highest purpose comes from our witness, and so we are unwilling to push through in sharing Christ with others every day, even in the mildest environments. Even when persecution is not present.

These all with one mind were continually devoting themselves to prayer (Acts 1:14)
Prayer is the foundation for all of life. Imagine the emotions and sense of fear and expectancy when Christ had been resurrected, appeared to His disciples, and then ascended. They were instructed to merely wait for the coming of the Holy Spirit who would endue them with power to be witnesses to Christ all across the world (Acts 1:8).
So, what did they do?
