The church prayed very earnestly for him.  The night before Peter was to be placed on trial, he was asleep, chained between two soldiers, with others standing guard at the prison gate.  There was a bright light in the cell and an angel of the Lord stood before Peter.  The angel tapped him on the side to awaken him and said, “Quick!  Get up!”  And the chains fell off his wrists.  Then the angel said, “Get dressed and put on your sandals.”  And he did, “Now, put on your coat and follow me,” the angel ordered.  Acts 12:6-8 NLT

Prayer does not change God’s nature; who he is will never be altered.  Prayer does, however, impact the flow of history.  God has wired his world for power, but he calls on us to flip the switch.

Moses on Mt. Sinai is not calm and quiet, with folded hands and a serene expression.  He’s on his face one minute, in God’s the next.  He’s on his knees, pointing his finger, lifting his hands.  Shedding tears.  Shredding his cloak.  And God heard him!  “So the Lord changed his mind and did not destroy the people as he said he might” (Exodus 32:14).

The church still faces her Goliaths.  World hunger.  Clergy scandals.  Stingy Christians.  Corrupt officials.  Pea-brained and hard-hearted dictators.  Peter in prison is just the first of a long list of challenges too big for the church.  So our Jerusalem ancestors left us a strategy.  When the problem is bigger than we are – we pray!
