Good Life Journal - Acts 12

Scripture:
Acts 12:5 - So Peter was kept in prison, but earnest prayer for him was made to God by the church.
Observation:
As Acts chapter 12 opens Peter is in prison for his preaching of the gospel. The church intercedes on his behalf and God performs a miracle to allow Peter to escape from prison. Peter visits the church and they are amazed that God delivered him.
Application:
There is power when the church prays. Often I forget that with man it may be impossible but God can make all things possible. What am I praying for earnestly to God? What would I pray to God if I knew He would answer it? I long for a prayer life that has earnestness like the early church and sees God do the impossible!
Prayer:
Jesus thank you for answering prayer. I praise you that you can do the impossible and you hear your people when they pray. Increase my capacity for prayer and to connect with you.
