Acts:4:23-31 And when they had been made free, they came back to their friends, and gave an account of all the things which the chief priests and the authorities had said to them.  And hearing it, they all, with one mind, made prayer to God and said, O Lord, maker of heaven and earth and the sea and all things in them:  Who has said, by the Holy Spirit, through the mouth of our father David your servant, Why are the nations so violently moved, and why are the thoughts of the people so foolish?  The kings of the earth were lifted up, the rulers came together, against the Lord, and against his Christ:  For, truly, in this town, against your holy servant, Jesus, who was marked out by you as Christ, Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles and the people of Israel, came together,  To do that which had been fixed before by your hand and your purpose.  And now, Lord, take note of their cruel words, and give your servants power to be preachers of your word without fear,  While your hand is stretched out to do works of mercy; so that signs and wonders may be done through the name of your holy servant Jesus.  And when their prayer was ended, the place where they were was violently moved, and they all became full of the Holy Spirit, preaching the word of God without fear.
