Stephen’s Last Prayer

As they stoned him, Steven prayed . . . ‘Lord, don’t charge them with this sin!’ and with that he died. Saul was one of the witnesses, and he agreed completely with the killing of Stephen (Acts 7:59-8:1).”

Soon after Stephen’s death, Saul, renamed Paul, believed and preached that through Jesus “there is forgiveness for your sins (Acts 13:39).”

The Lord answered Stephen’s last prayer.

Don’t Be Afraid – 1

Those who trust in Jesus don’t need to be afraid to die. Anyone can believe that Jesus Christ died, paying our penalty for the wrong things we do, and rose again, because he is God.

For the wages of sins is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord (Romans 6:23).

Anyone can trust in Jesus. Even you.
