An amazing Answer to Prayer
Acts 12:15-16 (KJB) And they said unto her, Thou art mad. But she constantly affirmed that it was even so. Then said they, It is his angel. 16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.
Rhoda was certain the figure on the opposite side of the gate knocking in the middle of the night was none other than the Apostle Peter. She ran back to tell the others in the house about this visitor. They were quick to dismiss her as they made their way to the gate, even making light of her folly!
Perhaps she was sleepwalking??! Maybe this man was a figment of her imagination?
Rhoda would not back down from her original opinion and keen observation even when everyone made fun of her. She was certain this man was none other than the Apostle Peter at the door. It was not until they all had gathered at the door and opened it that they saw indeed it was him.
But how could this be? Peter was locked away in jail. This was incredible, how then could he be standing at their gate? They had just prayed to God asking for His intervention in the life of Peter. This was an incredible and unexpected immediate answer to their prayer.
We serve this same miracle making God today. He hears godly prayer and answers heartfelt needs and desires according to His will. Lifting others up in prayer is important in ushering in God’s intercession in the midst of any circumstances at hand.
