Luke (Acts 16)

Paul and Silas were stripped and beaten yet they were praying and singing hymns to God as other prisoners listened.

Reflection:
Luke’s account of the sufferings of the early Christians are reminiscent of those of Jesus and yet their joy persisted throughout it all.

Prayer:
Lord God, what wondrous men and women these early Christians must have been. Pour out upon us the fullness of their love, their faith and their courage.
