Acts 12:5-18, 5 “Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church”

The first requirement in prayer is to believe.
-Believe that God is and that “he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.”

-Believe that God is alive and therefore has power-not only for Peter’s deliverance, but for ours.

-Believe that God is love and that He cares for His own.

-Believe that God is power and therefore no power can stand against Him.

-Believe that God is truth and therefore cannot lie.

-Believe that God is kind and that He will never abdicate His throne or fail in His promise. Read the rest of this entry »

Acts 12:5-18, 5 “Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church”

Peter in prison! What a jolt! We are too far removed from the actual scene to catch the atmosphere of dismay the Christians of that day felt.

Peter had moved from Pentecost to prison, from jeers to spears. He was guarded by sixteen soldiers. One wonders why such a defenseless man needed such a group to watch him. Could it be that Herod feared the supernatural, seeing he knew that Jesus escaped such a group that guarded Him? Read the rest of this entry »

Mark 1:35, “And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed”

Modeling the discipline of prayer. How was Mark able to write this verse when it is clear that everyone was sleeping when Jesus entered in this prayer discipline? In the succeeding verses is our main verse in Mark 1:35 we read, “And Simon and those who were with him searched for him, 37 and they found him and said to him, “Everyone is looking for you.” Read the rest of this entry »

Mark 1:35, “And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed”

Going- Prayer causes one to go to where one can be alone with God. Businessmen take trips to meet with important people to be with than individual because some things cannot be handled through email, on the phone, or even through video chat. How much more important is the God that we serve, to get alone with Him, and seek him. It is true that one can meet with God anywhere, but one should establish a place as free from distraction as possible. It was Susanna Wesley mother of John and Charles Wesley that had nineteen children, but still would make it a point to get alone with God. Read the rest of this entry »

Mark 1:35, “And rising very early in the morning, while it was still dark, he departed and went out to a desolate place, and there he prayed”

Do you pray? When do you go to the Father in prayer, is it when you need something, when you are out of solutions, or perhaps when you have exhausted all your other resources and options? I think we can all testify that we are guilty at some level of a lack of prayer for one reason or another. Can the man that has a busy work schedule, or a mother busy with her children, or an athlete busy with his or her schedule use the excuse that there is simply not enough time?
