So Peter and John preach Jesus and the religious leaders don't respond too well to the whole thing. Threats are levied, a lot of tension is in the air, the response isn't great.
So we have seen the religious leaders response, now how will the Jesus followers respond? What will be the response to the threats that have been thrown out? Peter and John will rejoin the group, relay the threats from the religious authorities, and then something so common among these early Jesus followers happens: they pray.
But there are two elements to this prayer that makes this so uncommon. These two elements will transform the way we react to hardship that comes our way when we obey Jesus. These two elements will change the way we pray when life gets hard.
