So many of the letters we receive from prisoners are straight from the heart. Many of them have hit rock bottom and are looking up for help and answers to the critical questions of life.
We received this letter from a guy who was assigned to a Special Housing Unit in prison. He gives an interesting account of how God met him where he is at:
The letters we receive are so encouraging. God is still in the business of changing menÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s lives. Matter of fact, He is really good at that!
Please pray for the men and women in prison. For so many of them, it is where God gets their full and complete attention. Reach out to them. DropÃ‚Â them a letter in the mail. Send them some books or call your local prison and supply the chaplain with some materials. With the lockdowns, they have been looking for more and more materials to keep the inmates occupied.
Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:Ã‚Â For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
The souls of prisoners and prison guards matter to God. Make sure they matter to you as well.
Until the Nets are Full,
P.S. We received this note from one of the prison ministries we support, Prison Book Project (https://prisonbookproject.org/). They are a great group of folksÃ‚Â who work hard to help reach prisoners for Christ by distributing materials. They received the following postcard from Sandra and passed it along to us.
