“Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.”
1 Pet 5:7 says Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Peter writing to believers informs them, and by extension us of the Father’s willingness to have our cares upon him because he cares.
This shows us that the Father is not indifferent about the natural affairs of our lives. He is very much concerned!
Our opening text shows us what consistent prayer by the church made possible. It brought Peter out of the prison miraculously.
James had been killed, Herod saw it pleased the Jews, he planned to do same with Peter, but the church prayed.
Have you spent time to pray when you sensed a delay is not ordinary? Have you spent time to pray for that brother or sister experiencing some sort of difficulty or challenge? Have you spent time to pray for that relationship, business or academic endeavour? Knowing that there is supernatural intervention.
Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
There is supernatural intervention as we pray. There are angels dispatched on assignment to see that things happen.
Spend time praying today for any situation, conscious of the fact that there is supernatural intervention.
Say This: I am never stranded. I see and experience supernatural intervention in my affairs. God is concerned about me! He is not indifferent about the natural aspects of my life! Hallelujah!
