A Ground Shaking Prayer

Summary – Peter and John, after being released from prison after a warning (threats) to not speak in the name of Jesus again, the church prayed. They didn’t pray for protection or for the rulers to change their minds or for God to show them where to run away to… they prayed for boldness to continue to proclaim Jesus as King regardless of the opposition that would come. Too often the approach of the church in the West to the culture it is in has been fear. The early church displayed faith in God’s sovereignty and a passion to embrace the culture it was in.
