(Philippians 4:4-8 NIV)
“Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him .And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

And his chains fell of his hands.” – Acts 12 v 5-7 (KJV)
