The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. - James 5:16 (NIV)
In February 2016 I was sentenced to jail, a new and unexpected experience for me, after having served my country as a soldier and my community as a firefighter. In June 2017, I began sharing a cell with an older man who explained to me the message of the gospel....
Every day, I pray for the Lord’s will to be done.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
