There is a remarkable story in Acts 12 about Peter, the disciple of the Lord in prison. He was being guarded by a large group of soldiers and his execution seemed to be inevitable.
But the new believers in the city were praying. That night an angel of the Lord came and woke Peter up and freed him from jail. When he arrived at the house where the people were praying, he asked for admission, but at first they did not want to believe it was him.
They prayed for his release, but did not believe it would or could happen! We are so often just like them. God’s word says that when we pray we must believe and not doubt.
God opens doors and answers prayer. Let us pray believing and see God do the impossible!
James 1:6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind
