We’ve seen in the Apostle’s Prayer several elements: Praise, Scripture, Prophecy, Submission, and now Intercession!
 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word,Acts 4:29
Notice they didn’t begin their prayer with asking God for something – they followed the pattern of the Lord’s prayer. Recognize who God is – then ask. That helps us not to ask amiss:
Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.James 4:3
As opposed to lustful prayers, this was a Biblical Prayer – commanded by Jesus!
 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few;Matthew 9:37-38
 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.
We can tell this was a Biblical prayer because this prayer was answered!
 And when 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 with boldness.Acts 4:31
The answer to prayer was not that the place was shaken, or that they were filled with the Spirit – that was the added blessings. Their prayer was that they would speak with boldness – and that was granted!
Let’s pray as well for power to speak God’s Word with boldness today!
