Urgent Plea for Prayer
Get Ready to Experience an Encounter with God
“Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him” (Acts 12:5).
King Herod seized Peter during the Feast of Unleavened Bread. He was placed in jail and handed over to four soldiers. There were plans to have him brought before the public after the Passover. Peter was in a bad situation, but the church was praying.
During your 31 days you never know whom you may be praying for. Yes, you may be praying for someone speci cally, but I guarantee that you are also praying for individuals you do not know. If we are praying community, our prayers may change from, “Lord, bless my family,” to “Lord, bless the commu- nity.” Someone in the community may need that prayer of blessing at that particular time and because you prayed they were blessed.
As you drive by a school your prayers may be, “Lord, open the mind of my son/daughter to learn and gain knowledge.” When praying community your prayer may change to say, “Lord, open the minds of all the students to learn and gain knowl- edge.” Because of your change in prayer many more students’ minds around the world may open to learn and gain knowledge. Isn’t that beautiful?
As in the Scripture, when we pray, things can happen suddenly! SUDDENLY … “Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. ‘Quick, get up!’ he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists” (Acts 12:7).
Because of your faithfulness. Because you made a commitment to pray. Because people are joining you in prayer … your SUDDENLY is here. Today experience a God encounter.
