“Suddenly there was a great earthquake so that the very foundations of the prison were shaken; and at once all the doors were opened and everyone’s shackles were unfastened.”Act 16:26



Beloved, Praising God is the major key to living a shackle-free life. When you pray, God sends angels to hearken to the voice of your petitions, but praising God is different because He inhabits the praises of His people; God arises in His battle array when you give Him the praise He deserves.

A certain slave girl harassed Paul and Silas no end. They soon got fed up with her irritating antics, and Paul cast out the spirit controlling her and as a result incurred the wrath of her occultic masters who used her to acquire wealth. This resulted in Paul and Silas being flogged and thrown into Jail. Then at midnight in their usual manner (praise should be a lifestyle for every Christian), they praised God, singing hymns and worshipping God when suddenly there was a great earthquake, which shook the prison to its foundation and immediately all its doors were flung open, and the prisoners’ chains were loosed. They overcame their limitations of closed doors and restrictive chains by praising God.

Beloved, what is it that is limiting you at the moment? What are the constant battles that you have been facing? Is it in your health, in your relationships, in your family, or in your finances? Have you fasted and prayed and yet you are frustrated? Why not try ‘Praise’? Praising God is the best way to turn things around in your favour and bring heavenly forces to rescue quickly.

Acts 16:16-40

Supernatural open door
I want to thank God for His provisions and open doors for me and my family. I had nothing doing because no one accepted to give lend me capital to start a business. I came to church one of the Sundays and during the prayer session, I asked God to give me money to start a business to sustain my family. Few days later, my aunty called me and told me she will send me money to start up a business. I thank God for prayers answered.
