As you read the story of Paul and Silas being punished and jailed for helping an exploited servant girl, what do you think makes them capable of singing in the midst of their incarceration? Also, what do you think makes them capable of serving the jailor—the representative of an unjust judicial system?
How do you view prison personnel? They need our prayers too. Today, pray for prison guards that they will not become hardened to those around them or use their position of power to abuse prisoners. And remember that guards are often imprisoned people that God wants to release as well.
