The Lord is working in these prisons. He is setting the captives free, and opening up the doors of the prisons. Praise you God. I recently have learned of three women from Tutwiler (Tina, Pam and Michela), who have gotten out of prison, and have accepted Jesus, They need your prayers. Would you help me pray for these women? With Jesus in their hearts, there will be no need of further incarceration. Praise Jesus.

I found this article from an inmate from Julia Tutwiler Prison for Women at the Prison Fellowship Ministries site, and wanted to share it with you.
“Let not your heart be troubled; believe in God, believe also in Me.” John 14:1

When I came to prison, I felt as if I had come to a dead-end road. I was insecure, lonely, and afraid. I had no idea what I would face. Then while I was in the new-arrival unit, I met a girl who felt the same way I did. We shared stories with each other about our lives and families. Our friendship grew.
One day my friend was called to the assistant warden’s office. When she returned, she could barely walk or talk, her face completely white. She had just been told that her husband had been killed in a fire.

There I stood. I wanted to help her, but I had nothing to say. I found myself praying for her, and I suddenly realized how precious life is – and how short it can be. We never know when the Lord is going to call for us. Maybe that was God’s way of showing us both that we could not put off accepting Christ – because only through Him can we have eternal life.

Much has happened since that day. My friend and I have both accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior. Our loneliness is gone; we have security in His companionship.

PRAYER: Our heavenly Father, thank you for making me see all the opportunities awaiting me once I accepted you into my life. Amen.
