Notice the characteristics of the people used by God. Peter and John are two men God used in mighty ways (Acts 3). When we look at their lives we see right away that they were men of prayer; and God uses men and women of prayer. That should not surprise us.
Certainly, if I want God to use my life I need to be in daily contact with Him. I need to seek His guidance. I need to seek His counsel. I should never act apart from God’s directions.
Peter and John were men of prayer; they were looking to their Lord, Jesus Christ for guidance, strength, and wisdom.
