In Your Midnight Hour (Acts 16:25-28)Pastor Justin Pratt, February 12, 2017
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Paul and Silas were imprisoned, chained and bound. They were facing dark times. But at the midnight hour, in the midst of their circumstances, the continued to praise and worship God for His Mercy, Grace, and Goodness. The other prisoners no doubt thought they were crazy.
But as they sang and worshiped Him, a great earthquake shook the jail and freed them of their bonds. Not just for them, but for them all.
What we do in our midnight hour can change us, our situation, and others around us. Can you lift up your voice and praise Him during your midnight hour?

25And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them. 26And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken: and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one's bands were loosed. 27And the keeper of the prison awaking out of his sleep, and seeing the prison doors open, he drew out his sword, and would have killed himself, supposing that the prisoners had been fled. 28But Paul cried with a loud voice, saying, Do thyself no harm: for we are all here. (KJV)
