Day 89 - 90 Day Bible Reading Challenge - Acts 21 - 24 Great Adventure A Journey Through the Bible9

Day 89 

Acts 21 - 24

Bible Time Period:  The Church 
The Church carries on your work in the world:  Make me a faithful ambassador of your love.

Lord of Mercy, St. Paul prayed that he might be delivered from his enemies in Jerusalem, but in Your divine plan to advance the doctrine of the Church, You allowed him to become a prisoner for the sake of the Gospel.  We often face similar disappointments in our faith journeys when our prayers for deliverance seem to go unanswered.  Give us the faith of Paul in those times of struggle, Lord, and the knowledge that You are with us in our sufferings.  Help us to understand if we trust You and have faith in Your plan for our lives that You can turn those struggles and sufferings into victories that will count toward our eternal salvation.  We pray in the name of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen. (Agape Catholic Bible Study Lesson 10)

The rest of Acts has to do with Paul’s arrest and imprisonment in Caesarea and the trials that lead to his journey to Rome and ministry there.  Paul has had to suffer much for the gospel, but in Acts 23:11, the Lord himself stands by Paul and gives him courage.
