In his own words, Inmate Jimmy
Hear me O God, my righteous plea of repentance. Please give ear to my prayer, it does not rise from deceitful lips O God, do not rebuke me in Your anger or discipline me in Your wrath. Please, please be merciful to me and heal me dear God from my addictions and from making wrong choices.
I am worn out from groaning all night long. I flood my pillow with weeping, my jail cellmates are pleading with me nightly and daily to stop crying and making noises!!
As I continue to drench my bed with tears; I’m a fool, now in jail. I was a gigolo, a drunkard, a dope fiend. Lord, I now want You to give me a new life! A new freedom and the knowledge to do the calling You have so many, many times asked of me.
Deliver me dear God! Give me relief from my ruined past, please make me NEW! Bestow new glory on me, for in my dreams I realize what You are asking of me. Now God help me to do Your blessing! I pray for more patience, for You said, “I am cut off from your sight.” Yet You heard my cry for mercy and when I called to You for help for in my NEW SPIRIT You hear, no see no deceit! My new times are in Your hands, deliver me from my old and new enemies, and from those who pursue to imprison me. For in my NEW SPIRIT You hear, no see no deceit!
And the Lord God heard me, and He answered me. And dear God when I learn that someone is hurting, help me know what to do God, and what to say God. Speak to my heart God, and give me compassion God. God let Your calling of me flow through the NEW ME forever dear God! And the Lord heard me and He has answered me. Thank you God and until I see you face to face. Amen!
What are you willing to do, dear reader, so that the people you know and don’t know, will go to heaven? Is anyone going to be in heaven because of you? I’m here because you cared enough to share God’s blessings with me. Your place of worship, your church must keep reaching out.
You see the same kids standing on the same comers. You see the same houses in the same old condition that they were in while you were growing up, you see the same parks in the same condition and after school programs cut or cut off. Why can’t we do some positive things for our communities? Matthew 28: 19-20
Dear God, I am NEW JIMMY. I want to serve you with my heart and my body. God use me in your service. Right now God help me! God use me in Your Service. Amen!
