    Do you remember praying as a child?  Do you remember the words that you prayed?  Let’s try it together: “Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul to keep, if I should die before I wake I pray the Lord my soul to take.”   In retrospect a little creepy, but still.

    In the 12th chapter of Acts we see the deliverance of Peter from the hand of Herod. It is an amazing deliverance. James is executed and Peter delivered. Both were ready to die. Shouldn't we be as well?

    With Peter in prison, the church prayed continually for his release. When God answered their prayers, they lacked faith to believe. We can overcome in Christ, but we must possess faith to believe the Lord will provide.

    Detained but not Defeated Acts 12: 1-16 Our text deals with an intense time for the early church. God was clearly at work, and the church was growing. Thousands had been saved by the grace of God and the church’s influence was spreading. Such growth created much concern for the religious ...read more

    based on 334 ratings
     | 66,285 views

    When Peter was in prison, awaiting what appeared to be a sure execution, the church prayed without ceasing for him and Peter was set free by an angel of the Lord. Powerful things happen the church prays.

    In the text, we find something taking place that seems to be missing in many churches today – that is church folk praying for church folk. In this particular case, a church member in trouble. The Apostle Peter is on death roll and all petitions to commute his sentence have been exhausted. ...read more

    based on 1 rating
     | 4,140 views

    Jesus would love for us to be his servants, to do his will above our own, and to direct the steps of our lives. But we must allow him to do so by surrendering our lives to him.

     | 5,791 views

    No lasting progress is made in the Kingdom of God without earnest prayer. When the early church faced crisis, they instinctively went to prayer. How, where, when, and what did they pray? What was the effect? What can modern Christians learn from them?

He had broken no law, and he had done nothing wrong, but he found himself in prison, where even while he slept, he was chained between two guards. While there’s more than one way ...read more

    The psalmist makes it very clear that all glory and praise belongs to God. Herod Agrippa I made the tragic mistake of accepting praise that belonged only to God, and for it he paid a frightening price.
