Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. Acts 12:5
Due to Peters relentless faith in spreading the gospel, the Romans and Jews were playing on executing him. But Peter and the Church had faith in God and understood the principle, “All things are possible with God”
So what was there weapon of warfare? It was prayer, They Prayed without Ceasing, as humans our natural reaction to try and fix all our problems. But our main problem is were not giving our problems up to God.
And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands. Acts 12:7
The Lord heard the Churches prayers and released Peter from prison, saving his life. A situation that seemed impossible to man, is nothing for our God. Think about it, Peter was in a prison cell, tied up with chains, and being guarded by Roman soldiers. What possibility do you think the Church thought they had to overpower the Romans and free Peter?
If you’re in a tough situation, don’t think about all the obstacles stacked against you. Pray without Ceasing, our God is the creator of the Heavens and The Earth, he breathed life into man from dust, there is nothing impossible for him.
Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. 1 Thessalonians 5:17-18
As Paul says Pray with Ceasing and Give Thanks to God for everything. To understand God is to develop a relationship with him thru our Lord Jesus Christ and to develop that relationship we need to Pray without Ceasing. Not just pray when we need something, talk to God. Thank him for everything you have been giving, praise him in the storm and the sunshine.
It’s like any other relationship, a marriage, a friendship, ect, you can’t build a relationship without communication. That’s why you need to “Pray without Ceasing” God wants to know you, not just in bad times but all the time in Jesus Name Amen
