In Acts 4, the New Testament church was being persecuted and told to NOT speak about Jesus any longer. Peter and John, when told this replied in verse 20, “for we cannot but speak of what we have seen and heard.” Later after they left, they gathered together with other believers and the scripture says they prayed for boldness. That’s… Read more →
This past week, we talked about on Sunday at The Ridge how the apostles prayed for boldness. When they were persecuted, they could have prayed for a lot of things, namely to be delivered from or kept safe from those that wanted to harm them.

One of the songs we love singing around here at the Ridge Church is Oceans by Hillsong United. It’s a great anthem that says…
“So I will call upon your name – And keep my eyes above the waves – When oceans rise – My soul will rest in your embrace – For I am yours, and you are mine”
On Monday, with the week ahead, the stress ahead, the mystery ahead, let’s let that be our prayer and rest in His embrace.
Enjoy this version of the song Oceans by The Digital Age, former members of the David Crowder Band.
