John Calvin on Acts 1:14

So it becomes us also (after their [the disciples’] example) to be instant in prayer; and to beg at God’s hands that he will increase in us his Holy Spirit; increase, because before we can conceive any prayer we must needs have the first-fruits of the Spirit. For as much as he is the only Master which teaches us to pray aright, who does not only give us utterance, (Romans 2:25) but also governs our inward affections.
