For the past several years, I've written to a few inmates. At times I've been able to encourage them in the faith, as they've encouraged me in mine.
A hearing has been scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday of this week for one of them, a young man named Jeff. I hope you will join with me in praying that God will sustain him and his family over the next few days and will bring about the best possible outcome. And pray for all those in prison, that the light of Christ will penetrate the darkness and despair behind those bars.
In the words of Timothy Dudley-Smith:
We pray, our Father, for those whose freedom has been taken from them: for all who suffer imprisonment, whether for crime or for conscience' sake; for all whose vision of your world is seen through bars, and in whose heart the lamp of hope burns low. God of mercy, give them help, according to their need, and hear our prayer for Jesus Christ's sake.
