The earth-shattering, foundation-moving, chain-breaking power of praise and prayer!

“Peter was therefore kept in prison, but constant prayer was offered to God for him by the church (i.e intercession and petitions). And when Herod was about to bring him out, that night Peter was sleeping, bound with two chains between two soldiers; and the guards before the door were keeping the prison. Now behold, an angel of the Lord stood by him, and a light shone in the prison; and he struck Peter on the side and raised him up, saying, “Arise quickly!” (Angels are ministers to the saints, they are also messengers from God. Daniel fasted and prayed and God sent his answer to earth via an angel. Pray, so that God can release His angels to minister to you.) And his chains fell off his hands. Then the angel said to him, “Gird yourself and tie on your sandals”; and so he did. And he said to him, “Put on your garment and follow me.” So he went out and followed him, and did not know that what was done by the angel was real, but thought he was seeing a vision. When they were past the first and the second guard posts, they came to the iron gate that leads to the city, which opened to them of its own accord; and they went out and went down one street, and immediately the angel departed from him. And when Peter had come to himself, he said, “Now I know for certain that the Lord has sent His angel, and has delivered me from the hand of Herod and from all the expectation of the Jewish people.””

Acts 12:5‭-‬11 NKJV

“But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them (Amazing, evangelising even in chains. How we Christians deal with hardship in our lives is a living testimony for non-believers. In all circumstances rejoice! For the Lord is good, His mercies endure forever!) . Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed (Praying leads to supernatural problem-solving acts of wonder from God. He is a miracle-working God). And the keeper of the prison, awaking from sleep and seeing the prison doors open, supposing the prisoners had fled, drew his sword and was about to kill himself. But Paul called with a loud voice, saying, “Do yourself no harm, for we are all here.” Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas. And he brought them out and said, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” So they said, “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all who were in his house. And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were baptized. Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in God with all his household.

Acts 16:25‭-‬34 NKJV

What are you waiting for, praise Him who created you, the earth, the heavens and all that is in them. Praise Him in order to break chains and strongholds over your life. Praise Him and He will make a way out for you. For what is impossible with man is possible with God. He will heal you, deliver you and save you. Praise Him, praise Him, praise Him!!!

God Bless
