Sheridan Correctional Malachi Dads Prayer Request - Friday April 1, 2011

Greetings with blessings and an abundance of joy to all of you prayer warriors who are truly a blessing to SOPCM and the men of Sheridan

This week was an open week as we transition from our study of “Lead Like Jesus” to “God’s Grand Vision for the Home”. We use the open week to have a teaching of spiritual gifts. The men were given a spiritual gifts test at the end of last week’s class to complete and learn about their gifts. I, having the gift of exhortation, found it uplifting to the men and myself as a short explanation of the gifts, encouragement for them to develop their gifts for His glory was taught.

We had a good diversity of gifts the most common being the gift of mercy. They were told that God will use their gift of mercy and time at Sheridan to minister to others someday all for His glory. Four of the men never heard anything about spiritual gifts, for them it was an encouraging session to see how they ‘DO’ have a purpose and means to glorify God.

Miguel – I first and foremost want to thank you for all your prayers. I pray that all your families are well in health and spirit. I ask that you pray for me to continue to tolerate the challenges that are put in my path so that I may continue to grow and to help them see that they need help. I also ask that you pray for me to lean more on God and Jesus when I’m faced with a situation that is hard for me to face. Thank you again for your prayers and wish you well. God bless you and keep the faith.

John P. – I want you all to know that I’m praying for you all also. The Lord moves in wonderful ways and I would love to be part of the ways. Will you keep me in your prayers throughout the week? I recently took the spiritual gift inventory and found out that I scored high in the spiritual gifts of mercy, serving and evangelism. Please help me to find my spot in ministry once released. Also please pray that my daughters will write me eventually if it’s God’s will. Prayerfully yours

Robert M. – Thank you so much and please pray for my son and mother’s well being and health, my brother, sister, sister-in-law, and their kids. Also please pray for Navic my cellie.

Thank you, His loving servant.

Last pray for me that I may continue to grow stronger in my faith and depend on the Lord more and more.

Sincerely

Please pray for the middle east of the world and whatever God’s stirring that He will get all the praise and glory! Amen! One more would be for my dad and his sickness. God bless, peace and love in Christ.
