Acts 12:1-5

Have you ever been faced with no hope?

Acts 12:5b
What did the church expect? Not much.

The key was not their faith but their faithfulness.

In the days of hopelessness, faithfulness matters.

How long should we pray? Until God answers.

Three lessons for the believer:

  1. God notices earnest prayer.

  2. God can move even when we don’t know how it can happen.

  3. Sometimes we mourn and pray at the wrong times.
