PRAY FOR JOE AND YOURSELVES
I have been visiting Joe in a county jail once a week for the past few months. He is a hardheaded and angry young man who sees himself as a victim of the legal system and not as the perpetrator of a crime. You see, Joe has accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior but not as his Lord.
I haven’t been able to get through to him, but then again, I’m really not able to get through to any of the inmates I minister to. God does His work through me. Besides, Joe does not need more information; he needs more submission.
Pray for Joe that the Holy Spirit will convict him of his self-sufficiency and bring him to a place where he allows Christ to become greater and himself to become less. Come to think of it, isn’t that what we all need to pray for ourselves.
