But while Peter was in prison, the church prayed very earnestly for him.
There are many different kinds of prisons in this life. There is the actual physical building with cells and bars where many are contained. There is a prison of your mind where your thoughts control you, and therefore you feel trapped rather than free. If you ask a teenager, he might proclaim school is a prison because he is required to attend. Some suffer in a prison of circumstances and feel backed into a corner with no chance of escape.
Fear not because God still works miracles. “The Lord has sent His angel and saved me….”(Acts 12:11b) Peter thought he was experiencing a vision, but the reality was that God heard the prayers of His people and sent an angel to perform a mighty work, an unexplainable work, a supernatural work. Prayer changes things!
I encourage you today to join your faith with others and pray together. Philippians 4:6 declares, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank Him for all He has done.”(NLT) I believe just as God moved on behalf of Peter, God will send His angel to the secret places and supernaturally, unexplainably, and mightily move on your behalf, too!
Be free today. The Lord has sent His angel to rescue you.
