Paul and Silas sang praises to God when they were in prison. There seemed to be no way of escape for them; they were bound fast, yet they sang praises; and these praises must have been well-pleasing to the heart of divine Love, for the deliverance of which they stood in need was immediate. The prison doors, we are told, were opened, and when they had finished their work for God in the prison, they went free.

What was it that enabled these men honestly to praise God in such circumstances? What inspired them? Must it not have been the "absolute faith that all things are possible to God" of which our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes on page 1 of "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures"? The prayer of faith, the Master said, moves mountains; and the prayer of faith, by its very nature, must always be accompanied by praise.
