We usually forget that a team God has chosen is not only effective, and work with one voice and with one commitment, they also have a witness in themselves of why their message is so important. “For we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard” (Acts 4:20). When you are an eye-witness of something, there is no question about where truth and your faith is anchored.
After Peter and John are released, they did the instinctive thing any team should do operating under the control of the Spirit; they returned to their brethren. But there was no time for feeling sorry or complaining about the circumstances. They simply “reported what the chief priests and the elders had said to them…and they lifted their voices together to God” (4:23-24).
You can be certain that this team had behind them a secret source of power that no team can do without---those who are devoted to prayer! What is even more amazing and important about this event was what they prayed for. “Grant to your servants to continue to speak your Word with all boldness” (4:29).
Take special note of how this prayer meeting ended. “And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness” (4:31). God wants this boldness to be the hallmark of every team that carries His message.
Is there prayer support for your team who agree with your mission?
