Acts 16:25 – Pray and Sing with Witnesses

Context: Paul and Silas have been arrested, stripped and severely beaten with rods after casting out a demon and having a crowd stirred against them for “advocating customs unlawful for Romans to accept or practice.”

Acts 16:25: “About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.”

Observations:

  • Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God
  • Other prisoners were listening to them

Application: I don’t want my relationship with God to be hidden, but I want to allow others to see the real relationship that is offered through Christ.

Prayer: Lord, help me to understand and live out a healthy balance between praying in secret and allowing others to witness.
