- “They did it because singing is an act of spiritual warfare, resisting the Devil. Just like Paul and Silas, we sing to hold on to hope. We sing in the prison for the same reason the civil rights activists sang in the ’50s and ’60s as they faced fire hoses and police dogs. And I believe they sang for the same reason that we gather in our churches to sing. We sing to give ourselves courage. We sing to receive anew the grace that found and saved us. We sing so that fear can give way to faith, hope, and love. We sing because singing is the exorcism of fear and despair.” — Richard Beck
