Acts 16:22-25

22 The crowd joined in the attack against Paul and Silas, and the magistrates ordered them to be stripped and beaten with rods. 23 After they had been severely flogged, they were thrown into prison, and the jailer was commanded to guard them carefully. 24 When he received these orders, he put them in the inner cell and fastened their feet in the stocks.

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

  1. I forget in this story that they were in jail because they had healed this girl of an evil spirit. They delivered her from a demon and angered her owners because they cost him money.

    Yet, in this, they bided their time and praised God. They believed He placed them where He needed them and they witnessed to their fellow prisoners.
