The Power of Prayer

Acts 12: 5-10 – So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him. The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance. 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. Then the angel said to him, “Put on your clothes and sandals.” And Peter did so. “Wrap your cloak around you and follow me,” the angel told him. Peter followed him out of the prison, but he had no idea that what the angel was doing was really happening; he thought he was seeing a vision. 10 They passed the first and second guards and came to the iron gate leading to the city. It opened for them by itself, and they went through it. When they had walked the length of one street, suddenly the angel left him.

When you feel helpless, you must remember that the Lord never leaves you alone. He is always with you, but more importantly, He has given you a powerful tool to protect you — prayer. The power of prayer can heal the blind, restore the broken, knock down prison doors in our lives. No, we are never helpless because we always have the Lord. We are never helpless because we always can pray. If you are stuck in your own form of prison right now, I pray that you will pray fervently to the Lord and allow Him to remove those doors. Remember, prayer is our opportunity to be a part of God’s plan.
