經文:使徒行傳十二章
鑰節:他們說;「你是瘋了……」(12:15上)
提要

        假想你的教會突然遭到嚴厲的逼迫。國家的法律改變了。本來敬拜上帝是合法的事,但現在任何人敬拜上帝都會被關進監牢堙C當局最刺眼的目標自然是牧師了。昨天,你教會的牧師被逮捕,教會執事召開通宵禱告會。由於在教會禱告很危險,他們便商請借用你家,你也同意了。今晚,你家擠滿了憂心忡忡、關心此事的弟兄姐妹。

        大家禱告得非常迫切,一個接著一個呼求主拯救被囚的牧師。「主啊,打開監門;主啊,差遣您的天使;主啊,救我們脫離兇惡!」在禱告間,大家也不斷彼此鼓勵、勸慰:「雖然撒但的用意是惡的,但主一定會使我們得益處。」另一個人說:「主的話絕不會被捆綁的」,還有人說:「牧師一定會被釋放的。」就在你們開始輕聲唱起:上帝是人千古保障……時,突然傳來敲門的聲音。每一個人都僵住了。是不是我們禱告得太大聲﹖是有關當局來拘捕我們嗎﹖

        你小心的從門孔向外偷窺。不可能的!來者是牧師﹖不!但,沒錯,正是他,是牧師站在門外。你來不及開門就跑回去告訴客廳那群驚嚇過度的弟兄姐妹:「是牧師,牧師在門口!」他們卻茫然的看著你。有人說:「你瘋了吧,當然,我們是求牧師被釋,但卻沒有人真的敢這麼期望。」還有一個比較迷信的會友說:「那一定是牧師的魂魄。」

        門又響了起來。這次你把門打開,每個人都嚇了一跳,牧師活生生的、自由自在的走了進來──上帝答應了你們的禱告。

        上帝真的答應禱告嗎﹖有時我們滿懷期望。結果卻是「不」。有時我們一點也不抱希望,上帝卻回答:「好」。而更多時候,我們得到的是令人不滿意的答案:「等一等」。我們怎樣才能使上帝總是說:「好」呢﹖

        那是辦不到的。儘管有人認為他們已經掌握了令上帝難以抗拒的祈求儀式或最有說服力的讚美公式──但上帝絕不會被逼入我們的計畫之中。上帝也有祂的計畫。祂是全知、全能、至高無上的主宰,祂的旨意終必成就。

        彼得被天使從監獄媊孺韖X來。羅大並沒有瘋。上帝再次應允了人的祈禱。

禱告

        全能的上帝,聖經告訴我們,義人祈禱所所發的力量是大有功效的。我們的確知道您會應允人的禱告,介入人間的事務。所以我們謙卑的求您施恩幫助我們能憑著信心求,相信您關心我們,並願您所關心的事也成為我們所關心的。奉主耶穌聖名,阿們!

Scriptures:Read Acts 12
Key Verse:“’You’re out of your mind’, they told her.” (NIV)(Acts 12:15a)
Overview

        Imagine that your local church suddenly came under intense persecution. The laws of the land had changed. Whereas once it had been legal to worship God, now suddenly, anyone caught worshipping God was thrown into prisons. The obvious target for the authorities was a pastor. Yesterday they imprisoned your pastor. So the church board called an all-night prayer meeting. Because it was dangerous to use the church building, they asked if it might be held at your house. You agreed. Tonight your house is full of scared, concerned, praying brothers and sisters.

        The prayers are very intense. Person after person calls on God for deliverance for your imprisoned pastor. “Shake the prison, Lord! Send your angels, Lord! Deliver us all from evil, Lord!” Between prayers, people testify, prophesy, and encourage one another. “The Lord will use this for good, even though Satan has meant it for evil,” one says. “God’s word can never be bound”, says another. “Our pastor will be freed,” someone else says. And, as you quietly begin to sing, “O God our help in ages past”, there’s a knock at the door. Everyone freezes. Have we been too loud? Are the authorities at the door?

        You go to the door and cautiously look through the peephole. It can’t be! It’s the pastor? No! But yes! It’s the pastor at the door! Without opening the door you run back to the frightened group in the family room. “It’s the pastor!” you cry, “The pastor is at the door!” They look at you blankly. “You’re crazy”, someone says. “Sure, we were praying for his release, but no one really expected it”, your spouse admits honestly. “It must be his ghost”, one of the more superstitious members whispers.

        There’s a knock again. This time you open the door. And to everyone’s astonishment, in the pastor walks, free and in the flesh. God has answered your prayer.

        Or has He? Sometimes when we pray expectantly we get “no” for an answer. Other times when we pray unexpectantly we get “yes” for an answer. And then there’s always that unsatisfactory answer: “wait”. How can we get God to always say “yes”?

        We can’t. Regardless of those who think they’ve got God cased – with the irresistible prayer ritual or the most appealing praise formula – God will not be cornered into fulfilling our agenda. He has an agenda too. And being the all-knowing, all-powerful, Sovereign that He is, His will ultimately is done.

        Peter was freed from prison by an angel Rhoda wasn’t crazy. And once again, God answered prayer.

Prayer

        Almighty God, You’ve told us in Your Word that the “fervent, effectual prayer of a righteous man avails much”. It’s clear to us that You intervene in human affairs in response to prayer. Therefore, we humbly ask You for grace to pray in faith believing for Your concerns and may Your concerns be ours too. Amen.
