The Chains Are Breaking

9th March 2022

Scripture Reading: Acts 16: 16-39


“And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.” (Acts 16: 25)

As Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises unto God, the prisoners heard them. People in the environment of their praise and prayers heard them. People within the atmosphere where they had a challenge heard them. People facing the same challenge with them heard them. Notice that when God showed up, the other prisoners were free too. Those that heard the praise and prayers also got their freedom.

Friend, the same challenges that witnessed your prayers and proclamations will also witness the divine solutions that are about to show forth. The same issues that saw your travail in the place of prayer will witness the help of God that has been laid out for you. The same troubles that dragged you to the place of prayer will succumb to the power of your prayers. The environment of your pain will bow to your prayers and praise.

The same prisoners that heard the prayers of Paul and Silas also got delivered from the chains they were bound with. As their prayers and praises to God entered the atmosphere, the chains in the same atmosphere crumbled. Hear me as I hear the Lord: as you proclaim your prayers and rend the air with your praises to God, the chains in the atmosphere around you will break into pieces. No negativity will survive your prayers.

Don’t allow the enemy to deceive you into ceasing from the place of prayers just because your previous prayers have not been answered. Don’t allow the voice of your challenges to drown the sound of your prayers and praises. Don’t allow the things that are not yet in your favour to stop you from drowning your atmosphere with the sound of prayers and prophetic proclamations. Don’t let the enemy shut you up.

The prophetic sound of praise and prayers you raise will tear down the works of the enemy around you. As you raise a sound of praise and of prayers, the chains around you will go down.


By my prayers and praise to God, I break every chain around me, in Jesus’ name!
