Prison to Praiseby Merlin R. Carothers
First Published in 1970
When we understand that God is in complete control of every aspect of our lives and that nothing — absolutely nothing — happens unless He allows it to happen, and when we understand also that His love for us would desire nothing but the absolute best for our lives, we can praise Him for every circumstance that He allows to beset us. If we meet our trials with thanksgiving, God’s power is released to work wonders in every situation.
Merlin Carothers tells his own life story: how he changed from a rebellious thrill seeker into an army chaplain. He then goes on to share his search for the power of God which transformed this reserved Methodist into a Spirit-filled witness of God’s power. He recounts a number of anecdotes of how the power of God worked wonders in the lives of himself and those around him. And if that wasn’t enough, he closes with a thrilling account of how God shared the secret of the power of praise with him.
