Scripture: Acts 12:3-5
Verses 3-5 state, “And because he saw that it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to seize Peter also. Now it was during the Days of Unleavened Bread. So when he had arrested him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four squads of soldiers to keep him, intending to bring him before the people after Passover. Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church.” It is obvious that Herod is on a roll. He killed the pastor of the church at Jerusalem, and he puts the chief leader in jail. He has made a major dent in the leadership structure of the early church. Now the church had to pray. As they prayed and interceded, God answered with action. The question is, what kind of action, if any, do our prayers demand? Are we asking for minimal or are we asking for maximum action?
