When this had dawned on him, he went to the house of Mary the mother of John, also called Mark, where many people had gathered and were praying. Peter knocked at the outer entrance, and a servant girl named Rhoda came to answer the door. When she recognized Peter’s voice, she was so overjoyed she ran back without opening it and exclaimed, “Peter is at the door!” Acts 12:12-14

Observations

• Believers who agree together in prayer should anticipate doors to be open.
• Don’t be surprised by answers to prayer, be thankful.
• Expect doors to open that were previously shut.

Prayer

Father, I rejoice in what you have already done for me. I thank you for your provision, protection and peace. The challenges I’m facing are much too big for me, but I know that they are not for you. I pray that you will bring help, victory and hope. I pray that you open the doors that are presently closed. I pray that you will lead me forward and provide for every need. I join those who are praying with me today, that you will provide. I praise your name in advance for what you will do. Amen! Amen! Amen!
