“The Insanity Of God: A True Story Of Faith Resurrected” By Nik Ripken

109. “… Still his tormentors were unable to break him. Dmitry pointed to 2 reasons why his strength in the face of torture. There are 2 spiritual habits that he learned from his father. Ones that Dmitry had taken with him into prison. Without these 2 disciplines, Dmitry insisted, his faith would have not survived. For 17 years in prison every morning at daybreak, Dmitry would stand at attention by his bed, as was his custom he would face the east, raise his arms and praise God, and then he would sing a heart song to Jesus. …” ~ Nik Ripken
