I received this written prayer from the man that I correspond with on death row. I read it on a tough day I was going through and God used it to evidently show his grace to me.
Dear Heavenly Father,
We give you thanksgiving for Jesus our Salvation. We thank you, our Heavenly Father for swing our lives and the promises in Your Word.
Father, I ask for the mind of Christ to be clear in Kyle, that he will walk with clear purpose in times and seasons, discerning his way before you, being discreet in all things.
Bless him to live and walk with the vision in this journey. May he be to others a living demonstration of your revelation of love in this earth.
Let your presence be continuously with him and his family, that even their home may have an atmosphere of beauty, peace and joy.
Father, we love you! Help us to walk worthy before you. I thank you for brother Kyle, for his light and encouragement.
In Jesus name I pray, Amen!
What a gift.
Teddy is on death row- and loves Jesus. He writes with affection and conviction in his letters and although I have never met him face-to-face I consider him my friend. That is the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. At the foot of the cross a cop and a convict can join together as fellow saints. “There is therefore now no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:1).”
Paul spoke about joy and rejoicing throughout the book of Philippians. He knew the principle of joy, for it is strength. Anxiety, oppression and worry can’t occupy one’s heart when joy is truly flowing in fullness. Joy flushes it out.
Isaiah 12:2-3 mentions that Jehovah is his strength and that he also is his salvation. Verse 3 says we draw with joy from the wells of salvation. Since Jesus is our salvation, He has put wells in our heart.
Love propels our faith (Galatians 5:6). Joy strengthens our heart (Nehemiah 8:10). Peace guards our heart (Philippians 4:7). These are wells that Isaiah talked about.
