ACT26V1-5 There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, 2 A devout man, and one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God alway. 3 He saw in a vision evidently about the ninth hour of the day an angel of God coming in to him, and saying unto him, Cornelius. 4 And when he looked on him, he was afraid, and said, What is it, Lord? And he said unto him, Thy prayers and thine alms are come up for a memorial before God. 5 And now send men to Joppa, and call for one Simon, whose surname is Peter

Good works and almsgiving save one from death and dangers Act9v36, 39-40Now there was at Joppa a certain disciple named Tabitha, which by interpretation is called Dorcas: this woman was full of good works and almsdeeds which she did. So many times I have heard people say that good dose not favor them unknown to them that the rewords of good works in such ways sometimes that God in his wisdom defend one from dangers for the sake of pass good deed, so keep on your doing, giving to God and men you can never tell that which will save you in days of troubles
