Thought for the day

(The thought for the day is based on the Mass readings for the day)

Peter thus was being kept in prison, but prayer by the Church was fervently being made to God on his behalf. Acts 12:1-11

Nothing is impossible for God. Peter was being guarded by no less than 16 soldiers. And he was chained. Overkill? Indeed, until the Lord acts. Peter escapes with the help of an angel. Do you think the prayers of the Church community had anything to do with it? The power of combined prayer opens the door for God to act through his people. Which by the way he likes to do.
