21 Days of Prayer Devotional
Day 16
Andrew Chalmers / Acts 4


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, their 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. You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David: ‘Why do the nations rage and the peoples plot in vain? The kings of the earth rise up and the rulers band together against the Lord and against his anointed one.’ Indeed Herod and Pontius Pilate met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant, Jesus, whom you anointed. They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen. Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness. Stretch out your hand to heal and perform signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”

Thought of the day

We should model our prayers after the disciples in this passage by 1.) recognizing the sovereignty of God, 2) praying corporately together in community, and 3) asking the Lord to have His way in us that He might work through us.

Questions to ponder

-How has the Lord proved His sovereignty in your life? Take time to write these things down.

-Do you regularly pray with other believers? If not, what is preventing you from doing so?

-When was the last time you asked the Lord to fill you with boldness to speak His word to others? Are you willing to pray this prayer sincerely? 


I learned about Take The City through a young lady at our church about 5 years ago and after going on my first outreach, I was HOOKED. I fell in love with the family environment, organic evangelism, and genuine love that I experience here.  The training, connections, and opportunities that I’ve been blessed with here have been nothing short of life-changing!  God bless my TTC family.
