About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them.
They had had their clothes ripped off them; they had been severely beaten with rods; the flogging had laid many stripes on their backs. They had been thrown like criminals into the darkest dungeon where their feet were shackled in the stocks – yet instead of complaining about their treatment, they were praying and singing hymns to God! What a testimony to their faith and their love for the Lord!
