After Peter was released from prison by an angel, he went to the house of Mary, mother of John Mark. This event is recorded in the New Testament book of Acts, chapter 12. When Peter was imprisoned by King Herod, the church had gathered in prayer for his release. After an angel miraculously opened the prison doors and led Peter outside, he went to the house of Mary, where many believers had gathered in prayer. He knocked on the door, and a servant girl named Rhoda came to answer. When she recognized Peter's voice, she was so excited that she left him standing outside and ran to tell the others that he had been released.
