The Believers Pray
23 On their release, Peter and John went back to their own people and reported all that the chief priests and the elders had said to them. 24 When they heard this, they raised their voices together in prayer to God.(F) “Sovereign Lord,” they said, “you made the heavens and the earth and the sea, and everything in them.(G) 25 You spoke by the Holy Spirit through the mouth of your servant, our father David:(H)
27 Indeed Herod(J) and Pontius Pilate(K) met together with the Gentiles and the people of Israel in this city to conspire against your holy servant Jesus,(L) whom you anointed. 28 They did what your power and will had decided beforehand should happen.(M) 29 Now, Lord, consider their threats and enable your servants to speak your word with great boldness.(N)
