Acts 16:25 NASB
But about midnight
Paul and Silas were praying
and singing hymns of praise to God,
and the prisoners were listening to them
Falsely imprisoned, Paul and Silas had been beaten “with many blows,” placed in prison, and locked down in stocks.
Under such horrible circumstances, they managed to praise God in hymns and pray to their Father in Heaven.
Under this kind of pressure, their faith caught the attention of the other prisoners who listened to them.
We need to be reminded that over the years of Christian witness, some of the most effective times of evangelism happened because Christians remained faithful and joyous people despite persecution and harassment.
Nothing should limit our prayer and praise.
God will use them to reach the hearts of those in the most difficult of places!
▪︎ Ask God to make you a loving, respected, and forceful witness for Jesus, not so that you can boast, but so that others can more fully know His grace and come to Jesus to be saved.
