Letter from Tracy P. in NEPRC, Cleveland OH

We get so many wonderful, spirit-filled letters sharing the good news of how God is working among those in prison. We are blessed to play even the smallest role in supporting these Christians as they work towards knowing and walking God's path for them. Tracy's letter is one of many, but I want to share her news with you:

Dear New Day in Christ Ministries,

Hello, my name is Tracy and I have given my life to the Lord Jesus Christ and would like some of my friends here in North East Pre-Release Center to share in God's grace with me. I would also like to receive a copy (along with these other women) of your "New Day in Christ" daily devotional. We had a member of our church read from the devotional out loud every night before bed, along with a prayer:

Walk with me O Lord I pray,
Give me strength throughout the day,
Take my problems, big and small;
Lift me when I tend to fall.

I may not be where I wanna be,
I may not be where I outta be,
But I thank God, I'm not where I used to be.

God's will, not mine, be done in my life today.
Amen.

And this helps all of us make it through another day. Its got to be a special book and a special prayer when you have 300 women prisoners recite it together as one in the name of Jesus. Unfortunately, the lady with the book is gone home now, and we miss our daily devotional prayer book. We would welcome one of our own. We look forward to receiving it. God bless.


Thank you, God, for Tracy and her generous spirit. May her letter be a reminder to us all that we can never know how you may use our words to touch another's life. Let all our words and works be only to your glory. Bless and protect all the women and men who seek you behind bars, and bless their chaplains with the sure knowledge that your will is being worked through them. Bring peace to our hearts and to the world. In Jesus' name, Amen.
