Praying to the Sovereign God in the Midst of Persecution
Passage: Acts 4:23–4:32
“Praying to the Sovereign God in the Midst of Persecution”
Question: How does the church in Jerusalem react to persecution, and the chief priests’ and elders’ command not to preach Christ?
Answer: THEY PRAY!
# 1 They pray - neither for judgment on those who are persecuting them, nor to avoid persecution - but for enablement preach the gospel with great boldness.
# 2 They pray to be granted miracles – performed in Jesus’ name - which gives credit to their gospel preaching.
