Wonder Working Prayer
Shield in Pointless Disaster
About that time Herod the king laid violent hands on some who belonged to the church. 2He killed James the brother of John with the sword, 3and when he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded to arrest Peter also. This was during the days of Unleavened Bread. 4And when he had seized him, he put him in prison, delivering him over to four squads of soldiers to guard him, intending after the Passover to bring him out to the people.—Acts 12:1-4
When enemies have chance to get hold of us, they will destroy us as fast as they can.
Produce Perfect Peace
So Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church. Now when Herod was about to bring him out, on that very night, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries before the door were guarding the prison. —Acts 12:5-6
When we place our concerns in God’s hand, He knows how to work it well. In His disposal He has perfect time, abundant resources, and absolute power. If we rather pray and trust Him in prayer instead of worry; we’ll have perfect peace and not distress.
Provide Perfect Deliverance
And behold, an angel of the Lord stood next to him, and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him, saying, “Get up quickly.” And the chains fell off his hands.—Acts 12:6-7
When he realized this, he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John whose other name was Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying. —Acts 12:12
God alone provides perfect deliverance and total triumph without difficulty because, nothing can stop the working power of His will.
