History Maker

Dave visited with a number of guys a few nights ago. Many times the guys just want to talk and pray. (Dave calls it "TnP.")

The range of response that night went from outright rejection of the offer of salvation to mild interest to excitement about and acceptance of the gospel. One Christian guy, Chauncey, asked for prayer for his son who has cancer. Please pray for him. We have certainly seen God answer prayer for healing. Two men prayed to receive Christ that night. One of them was a guy named Pat.

After Pat had prayed to receive the Lord, Dave reviewed with him how he could be assured of his salvation (1 John 5:11,12 and John 20:31). Pat literally burst out and said, "David, do you realize what happened? History was made tonight. I got saved, and I'm right with God! Write this down on my ticket!" (The 'ticket' is the 3x5 card Dave makes out for each inmate with whom he makes contact.)

Pat was excited to have his name written on an index card. Praise God that Pat's name is also written in the Lamb's Book of Life (Rev. 21:27).
