He Will Set the Captive Free

This past weekend my dad was involved in a Prison Revival at Hunt Correctional Center. When I was living in Louisiana I tried to be involved as much as possible in prison ministry because those guys need Jesus just as much as the people and children in El Salvador. The prisons of our country are a huge mission field and I believe more people should be taking advantage that the government allows believers go in and minister to these guys. I had been praying about this revival since my prayer week at the Prayer Fortress. However, this past weekend, while it was taking place I was really burdened to intercede as much as I could. Friday night, the first night of the revival, I was praying for the services and that many would receive Christ and a song came on that said, "Jesus' blood never fails me." I just kept praying that over and over. I really felt like that was a word for at least one guy in particular in the prison. So I emailed my dad and told him I really feel like this is a word for at least one, if not more. No matter what they have done...Jesus' blood never fails. No matter who has failed them....Jesus will never fail them. The blood of Jesus never fails! So my dad told me that He was able to share that with some of the guys and it really touched their hearts. He also said twelve guys were baptized with water. Praise God for the new believers and now there are twelve more missionaries within that prison. Pray for those in prison; don't judge them. They are people just like you and me and Jesus loves them with all His heart, just as He loves you.

Isaiah 49:11 "Through you I am saying to the prisoners of darkness, 'Come out! I am giving you freedom!"

Isaiah 51:14 "Soon all you captives will be released! Imprisonment, starvation, and death will not be your fate!"

Psalm 68:6 "...he sets the prisoners free and gives them joy!"

Psalm 102:17-20 "He will listen to the prayers of the destitute. He will not reject their pleas. Let this be recorded for future generations, so that a nation yet to be created will praise the Lord. Tell them the Lord looked down from his heavenly sanctuary. He looked to the earth from heaven to hear the groans of the prisoners, to release those condemned to die."
