“And when they had inflicted many blows upon them, they threw them into prison, ordering the jailer to keep them safely. Having received this order, he put them into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks. About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them,”

Acts 16:23-25 ESV


Hi Good Thing, 

This scripture is talking about Paul and Silas. After casting an evil spirit out of a woman, her masters became angry with Paul and Silas because they could no longer use the woman for soothsaying to gain a profit, now that the spirit was cast out of her. 

The men catch Paul and Silas and draw them to the marketplace where they are beaten and then thrown in prison. But something amazing happens. Instead of Paul and Silas having a pity party, they have a Praise party! The scripture says at midnight they prayed and sang praises unto God. Some of you may feel like you’re in a type of prison right now due to your situation, be it quarantine, a loveless marriage, depression, anxiety and so forth; but let’s learn from our brothers Paul and Silas. Let’s pray and sing praises to the most high God and see how He will lift us up, how He will give us strength and peace and Joy! 

Here are some songs just in case you didn’t know what to sing. Just type them in YouTube and have yourself a good old time worshipping our Great God!

*Lord you are Good (various artists)

*Jesus (Eddie James)

*I am reminded (United Tenors)

*I do worship (John Pee Kee)

If you have some favorites that I didn’t share, please feel free to share them with me.
