Bible: Acts 4:24-31

4:24 When they heard this, they raised their voices to God with one mind 1  and said, “Master of all, 2  you who made the heaven, the earth, 3  the sea, and everything that is in them, 4:25 who said by the Holy Spirit through 4  your servant David our forefather, 5 

Why do the nations 6  rage, 7 

and the peoples plot foolish 8  things?

4:26 The kings of the earth stood together, 9 

and the rulers assembled together,

against the Lord and against his 10  Christ.’ 11 

4:27For indeed both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, assembled together in this city against 12  your holy servant Jesus, whom you anointed, 13  4:28 to do as much as your power 14  and your plan 15  had decided beforehand 16  would happen. 4:29 And now, Lord, pay attention to 17  their threats, and grant 18  to your servants 19  to speak your message 20  with great courage, 21  4:30 while you extend your hand to heal, and to bring about miraculous signs 22  and wonders through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” 4:31 When 23  they had prayed, the place where they were assembled together was shaken, 24  and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak 25  the word of God 26  courageously. 27
