The Believers Pray for Boldness
23 Then as soon as they were let go, they came to their fellows, and shewed all that the high Priests and Elders had said unto them.24 And when they heard it, they lifted up their voices to God with one accord, and said, O Lord, thou art the God which had made the heaven, and the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them, 25 Which by the mouth of thy servant David hast said, Why did the Gentiles rage, and the people imagine vain things? 26 The Kings of the earth assembled, and the rulers came together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For doubtless, against thine holy Son Jesus, whom thou hadst anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel gathered themselves together, 28 To do whatsoever thine hand, and thy counsel had determined before to be done. 29 And now, O Lord, behold their threatenings, and grant unto thy servants with all boldness to speak thy word, 30 So that thou stretch forth thine hand, that healing, and signs, and wonders may be done by the Name of thine holy Son Jesus. 31 And when as they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together, and they were all filled with the holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God boldly. 32 And the multitude of them that believed, were of one heart, and of one soul; neither any of them said, that anything of that which he possessed, was his own, but they had all things common. 33 And with great power gave the Apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and great grace was upon them all. 34 Neither was there any among them, that lacked, for as many as were possessors of lands or houses, sold them, and brought the price of the things that were sold, 35 And laid it down at the Apostles' feet, and it was distributed unto every man, according as he had need. 36 Also Joses which was called of the Apostles, Barnabas (that is by interpretation, the son of consolation) being a Levite, and of the country of Cyprus, 37 Where as he had land, sold it, and brought the money, and laid it down at the Apostles' feet.
