Prayer first, then...

After Acts 4:23-31

Released by the rulers,
they report to friends
what has happened.
The voices rise and
join together, lifting
a psalm of praise.

   The Gentiles rage
   the peoples plot in vain
   the kings and rulers
   set themselves against
   the Lord and His anointed.

They raise the psalm
in the web of what
has happened.

They raised the psalm
in the hope of what
will come.

They raised the psalm
on the expectation of what
will heal, and what
signs, wonders, and miracles
will occur.

And they hear the wind,
they feel the shaking,
they experience the filling.
