And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness, while you stretch out your hand to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus.” And when they had prayed, the place in which they were gathered together was shaken, and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and continued to speak the word of God with boldness. (Acts 4:29-31 ESV)
They prayed not for deliverance from the threats, they prayed for BOLDNESS to continue witnessing and preaching the gospel. And when they prayed, the place was shaken and God answered their prayer by filling them with his Holy Spirit.
Let’s pray for boldness.
