Because Suffering People Prayed

Seized, dragged, attacked, stripped, beaten with rods, inflicted with many blows, thrown into prison, their feet fastened in stocks; all because they proclaimed salvation.

Their response? About midnight Paul and Silas prayed and sang hymns to God.

Then what? God intervened and the jailer and all his house believed in the Lord Jesus (read the story in Acts 16:16-34).

The next family could be yours.

President Lincoln On Prayer

I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had nowhere else to go. My own wisdom, and that of all about me, seemed insufficient . . . One stormy night I tossed on my bed, unable to sleep as I thought of the terrible sufferings of our soldiers and sailors. I spent an hour in agonizing prayer. ~Abraham Lincoln

Wise leaders pray.
