Prison Songs

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada.  And some days, my wheelchair can feel like a prison.  Unable to walk or use my hands, I look at the bolts and bars of my wheelchair and it can feel so confining!  But that is when I remember to sing.  What does singing have to do with feeling trapped?  Well, in Acts chapter 16, we read that Paul and Silas were imprisoned – but that didn’t keep them from praying and singing hymns.  What’s more, there was power in their song – chains were broken, prisoners were set free, and souls were saved!  Perhaps you, too, like me are feeling trapped by your circumstances: you’ve spent three months without a job or you’re passed your due date and the pregnancy is just getting harder … whatever be your “prison,” call a friend, meet with a brother or sister in Christ, and together, lift up your voice in song!  Remember, there is power in every song of worship! So, sing on, friend!
