Topic: PRAY FOR YOUR PETER’S FREEDOM
Bible Reading: Acts 12:1-5
📖1….”Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church.
📖2….And he killed James the brother of John with the sword.
📖3….And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)
4….And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people.
📖5….Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.”
🔥In Egypt, the Jews lived under the prison of hardship for over 400 years. This happened when Jacob and his family made the decision to relocate to Egypt for free food. But as time went on, it turned from eating free food to working before eating. Later, it degenerated to working without food, and progressively to, all the male children of the Jews must die. It was at this point that the Jews cried to God for help…Exodus 2:24-25. It got to this because a Pharaoh that had no respect for Joseph and the Jews ascended the throne…Exodus 1:8. But if they had been praying before this Pharaoh arose, God would have prepared an escape for them…1 Cor 10:13.
🔥🔥Same scenario played out in Acts 12:1-2, when James was arrested by Herod. No one prayed for him, not even the Church. Hence he was killed in verse 2. But when Peter was apprehended by Herod in verse 3 and put in prison in verse 4, the believers knew that the battle was coming to their door steps, and so undertook to pray for him. Beloveth, must we see that we are at risks before seeking God’s refuge? As Christians, we ought to be dwelling in God’s secret place, so that we will always abide under his protective shadow; when at peace, during battles and even in post battles, keep dwelling in God’s secret place.
🔥🔥🔥The Peter taken could be your business, marriage, children, health, Christian calling and life, that have been imprisoned by the Herod of your destiny. In Dan 3:22, the contrary decree of Nebuchadnezzar failed because Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego appealed to God in faithfulness. In Esther 7:10, the contrary decree of Haman was reversed because the Jews prayed in Esther 4:16-17. So, as Peter obtained his freedom because of the Church’s prayers as soon as the angel touched him in Acts 12:7, so all your belongings are regaining their freedom as you pray for your Peters right now.
🙏By the power of the Holy Ghost, I overrule every demonic decree made against the great contents of my destiny in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏I command to scatter, every panel of death, set up against my resources, marriage, success in life, ministry, family, and children, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏O Lord, send total deliverance to my roots, and free me from every foundational hindrances, in Jesus’ name.
