The Church's Prayer for Boldness (4:23-31)

When ordered to be silent, the apostles make clear that they "cannot help speaking about what [they] have seen and heard" (4:20). How will they sustain such determination? The church looks in prayer to its sovereign Lord and finds the strength to continue its advances with boldness. In this way Luke gives further evidence for the truth of a gospel that is more than a sectarian Jewish message.
