What You Should Do When You Pray And Nothing Is Working -Pastor David Ibiyeomie

Pastor David Ibiyeomie recently posted a video to YouTube in which he preached a powerful sermon on the importance of praising God in the face of adversity, using the story of Paul and Silas from the Bible as an analogy.



Pastor David Ibiyeomie, known for his insightful sermons, drew attention to the incredible tale of Paul and Silas found in the New Testament book of Acts. The two apostles were arrested at midnight and thrown into a cell. Still, their reaction to the adversity was instructive in the power of unyielding faith and praise.

As the narrative goes, instead of falling to despair and hopelessness, Paul and Silas chose to pray and sing songs of praise to God. Their deeds displayed a genuine belief in divine intervention and a dedication to praising even in the darkest of times. Pastor Ibiyeomie emphasised the repercussions of this act of faith, saying, “Paul and Silas sang praises unto God, and the prisoners heard them.”

According to him, “At midnight, Paul and Silas prayed and sang praises to God in prison, and God freed them. When prayer isn’t yielding results, it’s time to switch gears and focus on praise instead. The inmates heard Paul and Silas praising God through song.”

Praise may be a source of strength and a catalyst for change, especially at the most trying times of life, when prayers go unanswered and hope seems far away. It’s a reminder that God can perform the impossible, and that singing praises can open any prison cell.
