In the words of Jimmy Ezell former inmate at Oklahoma County Detention Center

Here O God my righteous pleas of repentance, please give ear to my prayer as it does not rise from deceitful lips; O God do not rebuke me in your anger nor discipline me in your wrath; please, please be merciful to me, heal me dear God from my addictions and from making wrong choices. I am worn out from groaning all night long. I flood my pillow with weeping, my jail cell mates are pleading with me nightly and daily to stop crying and making noises.  As I continue to drench my bed with tears.

I’m a fool, now in jail, I was a gigalo, a drunkard, a dope fiend, “Lord I now want you!” to give me a new life! A new freedom and the knowledge to do the calling you have so many, many times asked of me.

Deliver me dear God! Give me relief from my ruined past, please make me NEW! Bestow new glory on me, for in my dreams I realize what you are asking of me. Now God help me to do your blessing! I pray for more patience, for You said I am cut off from your sight. Yet You heard my cry’s for mercy and when I called to you for help for in my NEW SPIRIT you hear and see no deceit.  My new times are in your hands; deliver me from my old and new enemies and from those who pursue to imprison me. For in my NEW SPIRIT. You hear no and see no deceit in me.  The Lord God heard me and he answered me. And dear God when I learn that someone is hurting, help me know what to do God and what to say God. Speak to my heart God and give me compassion God. God let your calling of me flow through the NEW ME forever dear God. And the Lord heard me and he has answered me … Thank you God and until I see you face to face.

Amen

Attention: What are you willing to do , dear reader, so that the people you know and don’t know, will go to Heaven? Is anyone going to be in Heaven because of you? Will anyone in Heaven be able to say to you, or me” I want to thank you”  or I’m here because you cared enough to share God’s blessing’s with me. Your place of worship, your church must keep reaching out. You see the same kids standing on the same corners. You see the same houses in the same old conditions that they were in while you where growing up, you see the same parks in the same condition and after school programs cut or cut off” Why can’t we do some positive things for our communities? Matthew 28: 19-20

Dear God I am NEW JIMMY I want to serve you with my heart, my body, God use me in Your service

Right now God help me! Help me to do your Blessing! Amen
