Acts 12:15. But they said to her, “Youve lost your mind!” But she kept insisting that it was Peter, and they kept saying, “It is his angel!”

Read the nature account. Peter was chained in prison and his friends were praying for his release. While they were praying Peter, released by God through an angel came to the door. The girl who answered was so surprised Peter was out that she forgot to open the door but want to tell the others while they were still praying for Peter’s release. They did not believe their prayers were answered. There are two truths here. One is where was their belief and where is ours. We often miss the answers to our prayers because we aren’t really looking for them. The other is regardless of our faith God will accomplish His will and purpose with or with out our faith. The question is do we want to actively be part of His workings though our prayers believing and looking expectantly for His answers?
