Wigs Word of God Today
Universal Utterings for 3-24-2014
With sin we repent from living
I do not conceal Your righteousness within my heart; I speak of Your loyalty and Your Salvation. I do not hide your mercy or faithfulness from (the world.) Psalm 40:11
Second Kings 5:1-15, Psalm 40 & Luke 4:24-30
As I wrote a friend today, I greet you all in Christ’s peace bidding you faith, hope and love of charity. Today I’m reaching out to the people of faith to talk about something very dear to me these past four years and that is the Prison Ministry Kairos meaning “God’s Special Time.” As I pray for the intentions daily of all who listen or read my love of His Word worshipping God and Savior by the Spirit of Truth, today I ask you to please pray for me as I lead a Kairos training and weekend this Summer that I am building a team for now.
Today I wrote a friend that Christ seems to take us places we know we wouldn’t go ourselves. For me, its prison. Some years ago, well almost 30 in fact, I went to jail in an instant and I’ve never been so scared in my entire life. It was like death was more appealing than living a life of incarceration. I chose death by addiction that took me another 18 years to never accomplish because I was reborn in Christ. Now almost 9 years later I have consecrated my life to His Truth, His Salvation and entering the prison was the next step of serving Him.
“I was in prison and you visited me” really took to heart one day when I reflected on the night a steel cage was closed around me. Kairos, meaning “God’s Special Time” has allowed me to reach lost souls and many times VERY mean souls to know and live for God impacting a Prison Yard like you wouldn’t believe. A small intro below will tell you more about Kairos as I reach out to anyone today living in South Florida and invite them to learn more about being on my team. I’m building a team of 4o plus men and I have contact info for any women interested in going into a women’s prison. Please reply to this email or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask in prayer. Dear LORD, we pray for workers to help visit the imprisoned LORD. Novena prayers day five for special intentions. Prayers for Kairos Prison Ministry of DCI#49. Greg Bishop has our never ending prayers. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. LORD, from Psalm 40:12 I chant, “LORD, may You not withhold Your compassion from me; May Your mercy and Your faithfulness continually protect me.” In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
I am surrendered in Christ,
†Spirit led God inspired Christ fed†
With sin we repent from living– Psalm 40
New song for David smitten
On reaching forty written
Thanksgiving from swamps ridden
With sin we repent from living
Obedience makes her appeal
Wisdom from life concealed
Yelping proclamation revealed
Surrendered to Salvation for real

Kairos STATEMENT OF FAITH
The people of Kairos have been called by God to bring the light of Christ to the darkness of hearts that have been hardened and hurt. Kairos encourages Christian believers from a variety of faith backgrounds to be part of this Christ-filled ministry, but we all stand on the common ground of the following elements of faith that we hold dear.
W E I N K A I R O S B E L I E V E :
In the Trinity of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity and resurrection of Jesus Christ. We believe the Bible is Godʼs authoritative and inspired word for faith and our lives.
That salvation and friendship with God is a free gift so that everyone who believes in Jesus Christ may not perish, but have eternal life.
That the love of Jesus Christ naturally motivates His followers to provide food for the hungry, drink to the thirsty, welcome to the stranger, clothes for those lacking clothes, and visits to the sick and those in prison.
In bringing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to all incarcerated individuals, their families and to those who work with them inside and outside the correctional institution.
That our ministry experience develops in ourselves, inmates, their families, and those that work with them the desire to continue oneʼs personal growth in Christian community.
That Jesus Christ will come again in Glory, and Godʼs kingdom will have no end.” Amen.
