3.31.3 Godís Paint Brush
GODíS PAINT BRUSH
Have you ever watched the sun set, or seen the waves crash upon the sand, and look up into the sky to see birds flying above the land. Have you ever watched two deer play, or seen a wolf howl at the moon, or see a shooting star in the sky on a hot summer night in June. Have you ever watched the snow fall or seen ice hanging from a tree, or see two kids making a snowman for their families to
see. Have you ever watched a woman give birth, or seen two strangerís fall in love or see two families brought together through an ever lasing love. Have you ever watched a miracle happen or seen a sinner be born again and know that life is so precious because God painted it with His Own Hands!! (Submitted to Pastor Millie by Inmate James Hudson.

Praying Against the Loneliness of Being Incarcerated
Dear Father Jesus I had to pray to You today. Iím so scared and lonely, I didnít know what else to do. So I bowed my head and prayed to my Heavenly Father up above. Thank You Father Jesus for your everlasting love. You died on the cross for me and You came back from the dead. You washed away my sinís by the blood that You shed. Now Iím at lifeís cross roads and I donít know which way to go, Please Father Jesus reach out Your hand for me to hold. Lead me down the right path and forgive me for my sins. Please take away my pain and sorrows and help me to understand. Father You are my shining star in the sky at night. You help me down lifeís dark roads and make sure I do all right. Now Iím understanding that I never was all alone, even when I saw only one set of footprints behind me, It was Yours because I wasnít alone. (Submitted to Pastor Millie by Inmate James Hudson.

3.31.5 Inmates Prayer for Deliverance
Inmates Prayer for DeliveranceĖ ďYesterdayĒ How Did I Get Here?
When I take a moment to look back in time,
A whirl of mistakes comes to mine.
Selfish visions of times gone by.
Deceit and deception in a world full of lies.
I feel the turmoil and pain Iíve given away.
All the passionate fury of yesterday.
Then comes night and Iím all alone,
So far away from a place I call home.
My heart opens up and begs for change,
Asking for help in changing lanes.
Sorrow comes and tears fall free,
Longing for a better destiny.
I feel in my soul that my prayers are
Heard; I pray that they will be answered.
Come hear my prayer Lord
I will do whatever You say.
For there has to be a better way Ė
One much more peaceful than yesterday.
