One of my favorite stories about the power of praise is found in this chapter. Things can't get much worse than to be beaten with rods, thrown in jail with your hands and feet in stocks. I can't imagine how uncomfortable Paul and Silas had to have been. Yet, they could praise the Lord. Singing hymns at midnight.
Praising the Lord in the tough times, it's really hard, but I've never been beaten, jailed and bound in stocks so the garbage of my days really aren't that big a deal...
Below is one of my favorite Petra songs to remind me to praise the Lord.
