About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing songs to God as the other prisoners listened. ACTS 16:25
Great acts of faith are seldom born out of calm calculation. It wasn't logic that caused Moses to raise his staff on the bank of the Red Sea...And it wasn't a confident committee that prayed in a small room in Jerusalem for Peter's release from prison. It was a fearful, desperate, band of backed-into-a-corner believers. It was a church with no options...And never were they stronger. At the beginning of every act of faith, there is often a seed of fear.
