Prevailing through Prayer

Acts 12:1-17

Airs: November 28 - December 2

God specializes in the impossible. There is nothing He cannot do! Yet, we’re often slow to trust Him, even though we know He unleashes His power through our prayers, working miracles and performing serendipities that we never dreamed of. The Lord proves Himself faithful when we seek Him—even in the toughest circumstances and the most impossible situations. God’s miraculous power might seem distant or theoretical at times, but it’s not. It is real! The Acts of the Apostles proves it, teeming with true stories of supernatural encounters and glorious surprises. In this lesson, we discover how God used intercessory prayer to perform an incredible miracle in the life of Peter, the fisherman-turned-apostle.

Adventuring with God: Following in the Apostles' Footsteps


  • December 3 - December 4 Adjusting to Change

    Obedience to God requires openness to change. Webster’s defines the verb change as “to make different in some particular.” Change is one of life’s rare certainties! Our habits change. Our living situations change. Our careers change. Our families change. Our goals change. Our lifestyles change. And when any of these circumstances change, we change! We aren’t exactly the same people we were last week, and we won’t be exactly the same next week, either. With each day and each experience, we grow to become different people.

  • December 5 - December 9 The Sanctity of Life

    The days in which we live are both significant and stormy. There seems to be a crescendo of events that gains intensity as each month passes. For those of us who believe that Christ’s return will be preceded by an acceleration of evil, difficulties, and tragedies (2 Timothy 3:1-7), this crescendo is reassuring; His coming cannot be far off! But never is the expectant Christian to view his or her world with passive indifference. Among the many issues that have begun to surface and intensify, abortion ranks either at the top or certainly near there.

  • December 10 - December 12 Abortion...after the Fact

    Issues are being addressed openly today that were once only whispered behind closed doors. Among them, abortion ranks near (if not at) the top. Numerous individuals are declaring the necessity of preserving human life in the womb. Many are building bold and eloquent cases for protecting the unborn, denouncing the tragedy of abortion-on-demand, and declaring their convictions before the media as well as on the streets and in other public places. What is often overlooked however, is the individual who has already had an abortion.

  • December 15 - December 17 A Plea for Morality

    Sexual promiscuity is neither new nor novel. Illicit sex is almost as old as humanity, always promising more than it can deliver. More palatable words have replaced the obsolete and ugly ones. Adultery has become “an affair.” Cheating and wife-swapping are now merely “playing around.” Inviting terms veil the ugliness of illicit sex in mystery, fascination, and excitement.

  • December 18 - December 22 A Time for Strong Resolve

    Courage is just another word for inner strength. Courage is the determination to hang in there, to persevere, endure hardship, fear, and all manner of difficulty. The fact is, it’s impossible to live victoriously for Jesus Christ without courage. We cannot honour God in a godless culture without courage. The real test of courage isn’t so much for those fighting on the battlefield…or for witnessing in the midst of opposition…or even for facing down a burglar in our homes.
