So there are some amazing things happening right now. Not only in my prison – but in prisons across the country as well! By the grace of God – I have learned of a man who is on fire for God and has a thriving ministry inside the walls of his prison. I’m not gonna go into detail about him cause you can see his story for yourself at www.themattmaherstory.com.
So what is so amazing is that we have crossed paths for a time such as this. He has been praying for a mighty move in the lives of the men on Tier 7 where he lives. For peace and unity in His dorm and that the works of Satan be undone so the works of God can be glorified! And yesterday, a few women here joined with me in praying for him. We met at the same time they did. We met in the Throne room of God to “Storm the Gates of Heaven for Tier 7!”
We planned a day of prayer and fasting for Thursday. My friend Cheryl fasted with me. Our plan was to pray at 11am, 4:30pm and 7:30pm with Matt and a few others. But then, on Wednesday, I found out that we were having a concert here so we couldn’t pray at 7:30. I knew we’d be in worship while Matt and them were praying, and that’s just as great because we still met in the Throne Room together! PRAISE BEFORE PRAYER!!
The concert ended up being so special to me (you can read more about that here). And to everyone else here also. Come to find out – so much prayer went into the concert before hand as well! So Thursday was totally covered with prayer!
And then if that wasn’t enough – God showed up once more before the day was over. He brought my sister, Ashley, out of her living situation and put her in a position to get the help she needs. She is at a treatment center to be delivered from her addiction! PRAISE GOD! He is so faithful! And He is going to deliver her in JESUS NAME!
I will be in some major prayer for her the next 30 days. Please pray that she is receptive and that she doesn’t go back to the guy she left. God’s got His hand on her and there is no escaping Him cause she’s got a praying family! She doesn’t stand a chance!
