A Desperate Prayer to a Supernatural God

The Lord will fight for you; you need only to be still. Exodus 14:14
O God, You are Supernatural. It is the eleventh hour, so I am asking for Your abundant grace and Your mighty power to intervene this very minute. I am pleading for something heavenly to happen in this very human situation. I cling to this story of old, and ask for the same supernatural power today: So Peter was kept in the prison, but prayer for him was being made fervently by the church to God. And on the very night when Herod was about to bring him forward, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains; and guards in front of the door were watching over the prison. And behold, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared, and a light shone in the cell; and he struck Peter’s side and roused him saying “Get up quickly.” And his chains fell off his hands. And the angel said to him,“Gird yourself and put on you sandals.” And he did so. And he said to him, “Wrap you cloak around you and follow me.” …and when they passed through the first and second guard, they came to the iron gate that leads into the city, which opened for them by itself; and they went out along one street; and immediately the angel departed from him.” O Lord, my God, I ask You to do this very same work today. There are so many hearts that are locked in a prison of lies and deceit. Come into their darkness and shed Your light. Awaken their souls to Your freeing truth. Cause Your wonder-working power to strike hardened hearts with Your tender mercy and Your gentle love. Remove chains of deception and addiction that bind them to this world; by Your grace, help each one of them to get dressed with Your garments of salvation and Your robes of righteousness. Open the gates to the One way that brings complete freedom, which is Jesus, only Jesus. O God, I ask for You to show up in this mighty way right now. I believe in You, Father, I believe in Your Son, I believe in Your Spirit. I am tired, I am weary, and I have no fight left in me. Yet because of You, I am not without hope. So I will continue my rock solid stance; and in this place, I will lift up my fervent and faith-filled prayers to You, without ceasing. Please do Your supernatural work in the hearts and in the lives of the ones I love. For I cling to the promise that You have come to proclaim liberty to captives, and to set prisoners free.
