10 Jul Peter’s Miraculous Escape from Prison
“The church was devoted to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.”
King Herod (King of the Jewish people) persecuted Christians and ordered the arrest of the apostle, Peter. The whole church was very afraid so they gathered together in a house to pray. While they were praying, an angel visited Peter’s prison cell and miraculously released him. Peter found his way to the house where the church was praying. Peter went into hiding but Herod was eventually struck down by an angel when he received praise from the people as if he was God.
