On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God. “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them.

– Acts 4:23-24 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

A lame man had been dramatically healed and the disciples were experiencing persecution for their actions. Notice how they started their prayer for help. They remembered that God made the earth and therefore He had the power to do what He wished. It is always good to start our petitions with a reminder that no matter how big our problems look to us, our God is bigger.
