Please read with me the words of JESUS as recorded for us in
Luke 4:18 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
18 “THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,
via Luke 4:18 NASB – THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME – Bible Gateway.
Now recall with me that in Acts 16 Paul and Silas had been beaten and thrown into the inner prison. And this was no casual beating, they were stripped of their clothing and then struck with many blows. I am wondering if those blows came by a cat-of-nine-tails. And further more after the flogging their feet were placed in stocks there in a most inner dark, filthy, foul-smelling cell.
25 But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them;

And the prisoners were listening to them.
HE HAS SENT ME TO PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, Paul and Silas were captives who had been set free – that is why they were praying and singing and it was to this that the prisoners were listening.
Prisoners- Captives will be listening to you and me today. What will they hear?
This is World Evangelism prayer day for me. I’m still praying for Rapa Nui (Easter Island). For what place are you praying?
