Re:Verse reading–Acts 12:1-19 (day seven)
So Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God. Acts 12:5
…he went to the house of Mary, the mother of John who was also called Mark, where many were gathered together and were praying. Acts 12:12
Therefore, confess your sins to one another, and pray for one another so that you may be healed. The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much. James 5:16
Prayer can indeed accomplish much. The prayer of even one who is righteous or one who has the faith of a mustard seed can transform life, and when the church gathers together in unified prayer there is little that can stand in her way. In our text this week the church is on her knees praying the night away, and God honors their faithfulness as I am certain God has honored the faithfulness of our praying church. Your prayers have already made a lasting impact on my life. All through this transition process I have felt your prayers encouraging me daily, and I know that God has already blessed our prayer together Friday night. May God continue to bless you for being a praying church.
