2020 Day 45 – Acts 12-13 and Psalms 45

King Herod was persecuting some in the church and had Peter thrown into prison.  “Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.” (Acts 12:5)  During the night Peter was led out of the prison by an angel of the Lord.  He went to a house where some of those were praying for him.  “And when he knocked at the door of the gateway, a servant girl named Rhoda came to answer.  Recognizing Peter’s voice, in her joy she did not open the gate but ran in and reported that Peter was standing at the gate. They said to her, ‘You are out of your mind.’ But she kept insisting that it was so, and they kept saying, ‘It is his angel!’” (Acts 12:13-15)  Even though they had been praying diligently for Peter, they were shocked to see him.  Jesus tells us that we must have faith when we pray.  “And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.’” (Mark 11:22-25)
