Thank you Lord

a letter from Brooks Co. Jail, 2017

Greetings,
                    Mr. Ken, you and your staff have really and truly been a blessing for me.  I’ve come from  a rough background, and sometimes I feel like I’m the black sheep of my family, but getting back in – tuned with God’s Word I feel amazing. Truth be told yeah I still get angered about certian things, but I don’t let it control me.  I pray, ask for forgiveness and Say “Thank you Lord” repeating it over and over.

I’m currently here in jail on a violation of probation for not reporting, but really how I see it God brought me here to help me to stop violating myself. I had got to the point where I didn’t care about myself just wanted to get $ and get some “weed” … but by the grace of God my mind has been renewed.  I think about what Jesus had already done for me and pray for forgiveness and ask him to keep me mentally strong as he has emotionally and physically.  

Lord’s will soon I will hear something from my probation officer soon but Mr. Ken I wanna request a prayer for my loved ones — …. …. … … … … … because I love them dearly and I only hope the best for them.  I’m gonna continue with these studies even after I’m out so everytime I complete  be looking forward to a letter but God bless you and the whole ECS.  I love yall goodnight.

sincerely
               your brother in Christ

My Prayer by K.F.

“My Prayer”                                                                                                    November 18, 2015  by K.F.

Dear Heavenly Father     Yes   You  O   Lord,

I need your help to tame my double edged sword.

Take away all the negativity, Please watch over my friends and family.

I cry out O Lord to you, But I’m scared my prayers don’t get through.

I’m lost in this cruel cruel place, Pushing forward everyday with death staring me in the face.

I sit alone at night and pray,

Thank Thee Lord for another glorious beautiful day.

God why do we try to tear each other down?

I’m tired of seeing others walk around with frowns.

Its sad seeing people lose their faith,

When all they have to do is let go for you’ve already carried the weight.

Not taking time to say a prayer before we go to bed,

Not repenting of our sin and to soon were dead.

The blessings you send get pushed back

Because faith and honesty is where we lack.

Lord I wish we could all walk free,

But one day soon chains, handcuffs & shackles can’t hold me.

I can’t wait to see my Father in heaven face to face,

Yes I’m saved but only through his amazing grace.

I know you didn’t put me here,

But you saved me from the death that was drawing near.

So thank you Lord for showing me to live Day to Day,

Without you I would have never found the narrow path way.
