Bible: Acts 4:23-30

The Followers of Jesus Pray for Boldness

4:23 When they were released, Peter and John 1  went to their fellow believers 2  and reported everything the high priests and the elders had said to them. 4:24 When they heard this, they raised their voices to God with one mind 3  and said, “Master of all, 4  you who made the heaven, the earth, 5  the sea, and everything that is in them, 4:25 who said by the Holy Spirit through 6  your servant David our forefather, 7 

Why do the nations 8  rage, 9 

and the peoples plot foolish 10  things?

4:26 The kings of the earth stood together, 11 

and the rulers assembled together,

against the Lord and against his 12  Christ.’ 13 

4:27For indeed both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, assembled together in this city against 14  your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, 15  4:28 to do as much as your power 16  and your plan 17  had decided beforehand 18  would happen. 4:29 And now, Lord, pay attention to 19  their threats, and grant 20  to your servants 21  to speak your message 22  with great courage, 23  4:30 while you extend your hand to heal, and to bring about miraculous signs 24  and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.”
