Peter was kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church.  (Acts 12:5)

In Peter’s day (just like today), it wasn’t easy to be a follower of Jesus. The ruler, Herod, hated Christians. He had no reason to hate Christians. But people who do not love Jesus often hate those who do.

God let Herod put Peter in jail. God knew that Herod planned for Peter to be killed. But God had His own plans.

When other people who followed Jesus heard about Peter being in jail, they met together to pray. It seems they prayed all night. What do you think they were praying for? Probably, they prayed that Peter would be set free, or at least that Peter would come to no harm in jail. Maybe they prayed that Peter would tell other people in jail about Jesus.

Sixteen soldiers guarded Peter so there was no way he could escape. He had chains on his arms with a soldier chained to him on each side. The other soldiers stood at the doors with their weapons ready.

Peter didn’t stay awake wondering if Herod would be able to harm him, or if his friends’ prayers would help. Peter made his chains comfortable, lay down, and went to sleep. God was in charge. That was good enough for Peter.

Prayer: Lord, please help me to rest in Your care and let You look after me. Amen.
