Acts 12:1-24

  1. Sum up Herod’s character from verses 1-4 and 18-23.
    How and why was his life abruptly ended?
    Are we living to the glory of God?
    Cf. 1 Cor. 10:31.
  2. Prayer was the church’s weapon to free Peter.
    (a) its character (verse 5)’
    (b) its obstacles (verses 6-11),
    (c) its results (verses 12-17).
    Those who had prayed did not believe that had happened was true (verses 14, 15).
    Do you believe that intercessory prayer can do great things?
    Cf. 2 Cor. 1:8-11 and Eph. 3; 20, 21.
