In this sermon from Acts 12 we learn what it means to seek God for EARNEST PRAYER. The word for that is ENTREAT. Going to God, asking diligently for a different outcome.
When was the last time you entreated God with other believers? Did you see a clear answer from God? First, James was put to death by Herod Agrippa. Then, Peter was arrested and put in prison.
“But God’s people were praying.”
Those simple words changed the outcome of the situation by the power of God.
