A letter to YOU from my husband

by adustyframe ~ January 30th, 2007

I am writing to express my heartfelt gratitude to you.

What a comfort it is to know that people genuinely care without expecting something in return.

Many times here in prison the devil tempts me to wonder if God loves me. Then there is a little light shining in the darkness.

That is you, your prayers and encouraging words.

I am so blessed to know that people we’ve never met have that much concern for others.

This has to be from God. It’s the common bond we share in Christ which gives us this love for each other.

I would ask for you to pray for God’s man to be found to fill the vacant chaplain’s position here.

Also, please continue to pray for me.

This is very very lonely here. The separation from my family crushes me.

Here are some verses in closing,

Romans 12:12, 13, 15

Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer;

Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality.

Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.

Galatians 6:2

Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.

In Christ,

Your Brother.

    Dear God, I lift up this man to You and lay Him on Your alter. It is a place of sacrifice he knows well. It is also a place of love, forgiveness, and healing; a place where You infuse him with Your strength and peace and comfort. Please do so now. The alone-ness and lonliness crush in on him; reality continuously raising it’s raw head without relief; consequences so deep simply breathing becomes laborious. And You know; You are there . . . here . . . in his presence . . . in his heart and soul and mind and body. Continue to make Yourself very real to this man. Continue to mold him and make him into every bit the man You created him to be before the foundation of the world. Prepare him to reunite with his wife and son someday; prepare him for the outside world again someday; prepare him for the life You have for him to live everyday. Cover this man with Your blood of Jesus; clothe him with Your armor; infuse him overflowing with Your Holy Spirit. In his absence, cover his wife and son; protect them; love them; heal them; care for them; meet all their needs emotionally, relationally, spiritually, physically, mentally, and financially, as only You can. Prepare this faithful woman and her son to reunite with their husband/dad someday; prepare their hearts and minds and spirits for all that will change and all the necessary adjustments that will come someday. You are Holy God. You LOVE these people, this family, who are faithful to You. May they know and tangibly experience Your love everyday. May their handprints become flesh sooner rather than later. May Your healing flow in and through their lives. May they wake up in You with no shame; with forgiveness and love and healing and confidence in their Holy God. May they know You; may Your love continue to flow freely into and through their lives, always touching the lives of another. Thank You; I love You, Ame
