《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them . . . So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.” (Act 12: 1-5)
Meditation one: Do you care about your church? When the church has a major incident or under an accusation, do you pray to God for the Church? Joined together constantly in prayer will make the chains fall off and the iron gate opened of its own accord (Act 12:7-10). A church that does not pray, like a walking body without a soul, has no life at all. A church with the power of prayer, God’s spirit will walk among them. When we overlook prayer, God will not be in the church.
Meditation two: What can you do when you reach to a dead end with no way out? Call upon God! God said, “Lift up your eyes upon me over the mountains, and I will help you, and protect you” (Psalm 121). Only by fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith, we can move forward.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You for giving me the privileges and the power of prayer. I know the strength and the triumph of prayer, but not because my prayers has power, but because of the promises You give. Lord! Help me to be a person who prays all the time. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen!
