Scripture Reading:Acts 12:16
But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.
Reflection: Many had gathered at Mary’s house to pray for the release of Peter from prison. The prayer was intense and had been going on for awhile. Suddenly there was a knock at the door. When, Rhoda checked at the door she discovered it was Peter. The group did not believe her report when she informed them of Peter’s presence. It must be his angel, they yelled back at her!When they finally opened the door, the visitor was indeed Peter! God had overwhelmed them with his response to their prayers for his release. This was just too quick and beyond their expectation. Indeed God overwhelms and he will overwhelm you! Don’t forget He is the one who ‘ is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worked in us’. Ephesians 3:20. Keep praying!
Prayer: Oh Lord, overwhelm me with a response to my prayers !
