Pleading for Others

- Sermons - Friends

Preached at the Sunday Morning service on November 21, 2010 by Pastor Ray Bertolet.
Part of the Friends series.

What your prayer sound like if you were in the midst of a
"horrible" situation? Would you be praying for an "divine
appointment" to share the gospel? Today, we see Paul and
Silas being beaten and thrown in jailer for the preaching of
the gospel. How do they react to this "unjust" situation?
Would we response in a similar manner?

Acts 16:22-25 The crowd rose up together against them, and
the chief magistrates tore their robes off them and proceeded
to order them to be beaten with rods. 23 When they had
struck them with many blows, they threw them into prison,
commanding the jailer to guard them securely; 24 and he,
having received such a command, threw them into the inner
prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. 25 But about
midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of
praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them;

    Pastor Ray – Harry and I just listened to your message. Again, very soul searching and thought provoking. I think of the Scripture passage that says “Examine yourself and see if your in the faith”. This is a daily walk – keep on being filled with the Spirit – confessing sin and renewing right fellowship with the Lord. Good exhortation! Blessings, H&S

    God wants us to Himself, with no idols before Him. This message helps us to realize how easy it is to become distracted from the things of the Lord in our daily lives.
