Around Midnight

I'm posting today at Woman to Woman ministries for Worship Wednesday.

 
A mob quickly formed against Paul and Silas, and the city officials ordered them stripped and beaten with wooden rods.
 
They were severely beaten, and then they were thrown into prison. The jailer was ordered to make sure they didn’t escape. 
 
So the jailer put them into the inner dungeon and clamped their feet in the stocks.
 
Around midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening. 
Acts 16:22-25


Mid-afternoon or midnight

Freedom or in chains

Completely healthy or battered and beaten


Are you praying and singing today?


Many blessings,

  3. Oooh, very good. You know that part in the Lion king when the one hyena says 'mufasa' and the other shudders? Well, reading that was a shudder moment for me. Rain or shine, good or bad, am I singing praises?
    Great post Lisa
    God bless
