Peter (7)

Today’s Bible Reading reminds us that praying is a powerful thing to do and that God answers prayers! Peter was arrested and put in jail again. He was bound with two chains and heavily guarded. Two soldiers were next to Peter while he was sleeping, and other soldiers guarded the jail door. It seems like it would be impossible for Peter to escape from jail!
A group of Christians were praying for Peter. And God answered their prayers! God sent an angel to lead Peter out of jail. God rescued Peter from the bad things that the Jewish leaders were planning to do to him. Peter went to the home of Mary, the mother of John. The Christians there saw how God had answered their prayers! Peter told them how God’s angel had brought him out of jail.
Remember that praying is a powerful thing to do. And remember that God always answers prayer! When God answers your prayers, tell others what God has done.
