The greatest miracle arguably isn’t a healing or deliverance, but when someone absolutely hard-hearted against God, a persecutor, a zealot, and a viscous narcissist one day, becomes an emissary of Christ the next. Immediately proclaiming the coming of Christ in the same synagogues that he previously riled up against Christ. What miracle compares with the power of God to change hearts and minds?
But what if *you* had a role to play in God encountering people? Stephen played this role in Paul’s life, crying for God’s mercy on Paul as he was being stoned. Did God hear this prayer? And what if this is the prayer He decided to answer? If so, Stephen’s prayer would be one of the most influential prayers in Christian history as Paul begins one of the most influential ministries for Christ.
