Genesis 39:19-23

19 Now when his master heard the words of his wife, which she spoke to him, saying, “This is what your slave did to me,” his anger burned. 20 So Joseph’s master took him and put him into the jail, the place where the king’s prisoners were confined; and he was there in the jail. 21 But the LORD was with Joseph and extended kindness to him, and gave him favor in the sight of the chief jailer. 22 The chief jailer committed to Joseph’s charge all the prisoners who were in the jail; so that whatever was done there, he was responsible for it. 23 The chief jailer did not supervise anything under Joseph’s charge because the LORD was with him; and whatever he did, the LORD made to prosper.

Obviously, this prison was very different from what we are used to seeing. At any rate, it still was not a nice place to be. But God was with Joseph even in prison, and blessed him and prospered everything he did. Even in prison, Joseph kept his focus on God, and God rewarded him for it. No matter where we are, God can use us, if we will only keep our eyes set on Him.
