The Power of Praise


May 19,  2022


Acts 16:25

25 “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.”


So, exactly when do we sing our praises to the Lord? When things are going well? Listen to these words to the song “Praise the Lord:”


"Bleeding in the darkness

The cell was cold and black

Driven to unconsciousness from  the stripes upon his back

He heard a voice crying out his name

His mind began to clear

And in the darkness Paul replied 'Silus I am here


"Oh my brother Silus Paul uttered with a groan

Today I thought for sure we were going home

And when I opened up my eyes I would look upon his face

But here we are together in this dreadful place.

Still I will praise the Lord,

I will praise the Lord

No matter what tomorrow brings or

What it has in store still I will praise the Lord


"This may be a prison these may be chains But still I'm free

Free to praise His name

And in tribulation my heart still sings

He is my Messiah

He is the King of Kings

The prisoners started waking up as music filled their ears

Some men were cursing and others were in tears.

Then suddenly it happened

There was no mistake

As Paul and Silus praised the Lord

The walls began to shake"


Read the passage in Acts 16 and you’ll see that, even though they had been set free, no one left the prison. The guard went to kill himself thinking that they had all escaped knowing that he would have to complete their sentence. Paul led him and his whole house to Christ.


Father, I thank You for the prower of praise. In Jesus's name, Amen.


Blessings on the journey, and remember that the best is yet to come.
