  Praying Through

Acts 12:1-19

Is the weather rough
On your life here?
Having trouble trusting?
Are you in fear?

Are the winds blowing
Hard on your soul,
So strong that you aren’t
Letting God have control?

When Peter was put in chains
The Church knew what to do.
They got together
And earnestly prayed through.

Then the chains fell
And Peter walked away free.
The Church was astonished
At what they did see.

Do the dark clouds overcast you
With not one answer found?
Then it’s time to pray through,
‘Twill make your life abound.

— Charles B. Mayes

Orando con fervor

Hechos 12:1-19

¿Está haciendo un mal tiempo
aquí, en tu vida, ahora?
¿Estás teniendo sentimientos de temor
y crees que tu confianza no aflora?

¿Están soplando los vientos
violentamente contra tu alma,
tan fuerte que no dejas a Dios
tomar control sobre la calma?

Cuando Pedro fue encarcelado
la congregación sabía qué hacer:
se reunieron, fueron juntados
y oraron hasta el anochecer.

Entonces las cadenas cayeron
y Pedro fue puesto en libertad.
La congregación estaba asombrada
porque vieron a Dios en actividad.

¿Te ofuscan las penosas nubes oscuras
y no logras ver entre ellas una salida?
Entonces es hora de orar con fervor,
para que halles abundancia en tu vida.
