Daily devotional: Power of earnest prayer

Scripture
So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.
Acts 12:5 NIV

Observation
Peter was in a dire situation with Herod wanting to try him and execute him. But God heard the church's earnest prayers for Peter and miraculously answered their prayers.

Application
Don't underestimate earnest prayer. God hears us and is compassionate towards us, wanting our best.

Prayer
Lord, You are holy and awesome. I thank you that You hear my prayers and that You care deeply for me, just one of a huge number of people that are part of Your creation. May my prayers be sweet fragrance to You, earnest and sincere. I love you!
