1 Week of July 8, 2012 Lessons for the Leader Is prayer a part of your daily routine? Do you often let life take over and forget to pray? The early church people believed in the power of prayer. Read Acts 12:1-3. This Herod was of Jewish lineage. He kept Jewish customs to win the favor of the people. The Christians were not following Jewish customs, which made many angry. Herod chose to make a statement. What did Herod do to James and Peter? Read Acts 12:3-11. Peter had been in prison before. He had a history of mysteriously disappearing from captivity. Herod made sure Peter had extra chains and guards to keep him in prison until he was to be executed. Imagine what Peter thought while in jail. Was this really the end of his life or would God intervene again? Do you think Peter was OK with whatever was to come? Peter slept soundly the night before his planned execution. The angel had to hit him on his side to wake him up. Was this a dream? What happened next? Freedom. God intervened once again. Does God often intervene on your behalf? Read Acts 12:12. Where did Peter run first? He ran to his church family. Do you run to tell your church family your ups and downs? Read Acts 12: Have you ever had to take a second look at someone to believe it was who you thought it was? Imagine Rhoda's surprise at seeing someone she knew was to be executed the next day. Everyone was amazed. God had heard the people's prayers and they had the physical evidence to prove it. Peter told the people to tell others what had happened. How often do you tell people the exciting stories in the Bible? Begin with the preschoolers today. What do these symbols mean? 1aApplication Activities Format: Follow the numbers with arrows for a 30-minute, large group plus 20-minute Application Activities format. 1 Follow all the numbers for a 45- to 60-minute large group only format.

3 People Prayed for Peter Based on Acts 12:1-17 King Herod hurt the people of the church. King Herod put Peter in prison. Peter had chains [chains] put around his wrists. The king put soldiers beside Peter and outside the door. Peter's church friends gathered at Mary's house to pray [pray] for him. This Mary was the mother of a man named John Mark, not Jesus' mother. While Peter slept [slept], a light shone in the prison. Peter felt something hit [hit] him on the side and he woke up. An angel stood before Peter and told him to get up. The chains [chains] fell off Peter's wrists. The angel told Peter to get dressed [dress]. Peter obeyed. Peter followed [follow] the angel past two sets of guards and up to the iron gate into the city. The gate opened by itself and Peter followed [follow] until the angel left. Peter knew God had rescued him from Herod. He went to Mary's house, where the people were praying [pray] for him. Peter knocked [knock] on the door and Rhoda came to see who it was. She was so excited to see Peter that she ran back to tell the others. The people did not believe her. Peter continued to knock [knock] until someone opened the door. Everyone was excited that God had answered their prayers and protected Peter. Peter quieted [quiet] the people. He told the people all about the angel who rescued him and asked them to tell other people. Peter left for a different place. 12 Make Application (7 minutes) Paper; markers; photos of missionaries, community leaders, or staff members from your church Choose 4 or 5 stations in or around your church or classroom for the group to stop and pray.

Let's go on a prayerwalk around the church (classroom). When one or more persons walk and pray that is called a prayerwalk. We'll walk together to a station, stop, and pray for people in our church and community." Lead children on the walk, stopping at each station. Tell about the person you will pray for at each station, including how the person serves in the church, community, or world. Invite a child to pray for the person. Continue process through the stations. Say: "We can pray for people in our church, community, and world. We can also pray for missionaries as they tell people about God." 13aReview the Bible Story (4 minutes) Print "Teaching Picture 6 Peter" (CD). Display the teaching picture.
