Sheridan Correctional Malachi Dads Prayer Request - Friday April 22, 2011

The class is enjoying our study of ‘God’s Grand Vision for the Home.’ We are having a lot of interaction as the men share particularly how things were when they were growing up in their homes. I do sense though they are looking forward with much enthusiasm to our last study “Inside Out Dad, Christian”

John B closed us off in heartfelt prayer and the reciting of the Malachi Dads pledge is starting to have the tone of sincere commitment.

There are still about 14 weeks left but I’m already starting to miss these guys. God has placed in my heart an empathy towards these men as we learn that all of us have experienced the same afflictions and sadness no matter if we are from. I can’t say all of the remaining fourteen guy will be awesome men of God once they are released it’s just part of the ministry to see or hear of them falling away, but I do have sincere hopes for a few of these guys in they will have lives that will glorify God and will enjoy His unending love for them.

Thanks for your prayers and encouraging e-mail replies. To Him be the Glory - Amen

Miguel – I first and foremost thank you for your time and prayers. I ask that you pray for my daughter, her name is Delilah, that she finds it in her heart to talk to her mother about the things she can openly to me about. I also ask that you pray for me to continue dealing with the trials and tribulations that I go through on a day to day basis here in prison and stay strong and planted in the Word. I thank you and may God bless.
