Prayers in the Acts of the Apostles

After Peter's release:

"Sovereign Lord, who made the heaven and the earth, the sea, and everything in them...grant to your servants, to speak your words with all boldness while you stretch out your hands to heal, and signs and wonders are performed through the name of your holy servant Jesus." Acts 4:24, 29-30

St. Stephen, the first Christian martyr:

"Look!...I see the heavens opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God!...Lord, Jesus, receive my spirit...Lord, do not hold this sin against them." Acts 7:56, 59, 60

The Christians of Caesarea:

"The Lord's will be done." Acts 21: 14
