THE REASON I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT PRISON MINISTRY!

PRISONER PRAYER SENT TO LETTERS FOR THE LORD PRISON MINISTRY TODAY: LORD, AFTER SPENDING MOST OF MY ADULT LIFE BEHIND THESE WALLS & LOSING TOUCH WITH WHAT FAMILY I DID HAVE, I NEVER REALLY THOUGHT TOO HIGHLY OF YOU. AFTER ALL, AS A CHILD MY SISTER & I WERE EXPOSED TO SEXUAL ABUSE ON A DAILY BASIS. TO ME IT SEEMED LIKE YOU JUST SET BY & WATCHED UNTIL MY MOM FINALLY DECIDED TO TAKE MY DAD'S LIFE. THEN SIS & I WERE PLACED IN A FOSTER HOME, WHERE SIS WAS ADOPTED INTO A HOME. {GOOD FOR HER}. ME? WELL, AS YOU KNOW, I DECIDED TO RUN & KEEP RUNNING. THEN AFTER FIVE DIFFERENT PRISON SENTENCES, THIS LAST ONE WHICH WAS THE ONE THAT OPEN MY EYES. I ASK FOR YOUR HELP. SO BEATEN & BROKEDOWN, I WANTED TO BE ABLE TO FEEL AGAIN, I WANTED TO JUST BE ABLE TO CRY, I WANTED TEARS TO JUST FLOW, NON-STOP DOWN MY FACE. I WANTED TO BE FREE. THE 20-40 YEAR PRISON SENTENCE, X2, WAS TAKING IT'S TOLL ON WHAT WAS LEFT OF ME. SO WHILE I DID NOT THINK I HAD ANY FIGHT LEFT IN ME, I PRAYED TO YOU. I DIDN'T ASK FOR FORGIVENESS, I DIDN'T THINK I NEEDED IT, I JUST ASKED YOU TO HELP ME GET BACK IN COURT TO GIVE SOME OF THIS TIME BACK. I DIDN'T CARE HOW MUCH I GAVE BACK, BUT ENOUGH THAT I WOULD WALK OUT THESE GATES, RATHER THAN LEAVE IN A BOX. WELL, YOU DID THAT, I THANK YOU. IT MAY BE ANOTHER 10 YEARS BEFORE I AM OUT, I MAY BE 60, BUT I WILL BE OUT! OVER THE PAST 2 YEARS, YOU HAVE BLESSED ME WITH NEW LIFE, & THOSE TEARS I WAS WANTING TO FEEL FLOW, ALSO IN THAT TIME I HAVE ASKED YOU FOR FORGIVENESS & ASK YOU TO COME INTO MY HEART, & HELP ME ALONG THIS JOURNEY. THOUGH I HAVE SO, SO MUCH TO LEARN AS A NEW CHRISTIAN, LORD, I KNOW THAT THERE IS NOTHING THAT I'VE BEEN THROUGH THAT COMPARES TO YOUR SACRIFICE, SO THAT I MAY HAVE ETERNAL LIFE. SO THANK YOU LORD, MAY YOU CONTINUE TO HELP ME STAY ON STEADY COURSE & PROTECT ME AS I GROW IN CHRIST..AMEN. ~~~ED. 11/2010.
