Apostle James, John’s brother was martyred by the king Herod Agrippa I. Peter was incarcerated. The church gathered at Mark’s attic and prayed for Peter. The night before Peter was executed, God set him free.
I hear the voice of the Lord through QT
If I am hit by any crises, I would rather take a long way to solve them. It seems to be a stupidity for me to pray, but when the church prayed, God answered prayers and Peter was released from prison one day before he was executed. My life today is the result of taking a long way, not a short cut. My life itself is the answer to so many people’s intercessory prayers. Prayer seems to be a detour, but it is a short-cut.
Decisions and applications.
God reverses at the end. Just one day before execution, God saves. God hears intercessory prayers, which is the key to reversal. The completion of God’s answer is through obedience. If I obey the words of God’s messenger, I shall be delivered. Therefore, I cast my anchor of faith in God.
