Ten years
« on: January 12, 2004, 06:04:15 PM »
I was a juror on a heart-wrenching case this past November. I just found out the defendant, a young man in his early twenties, just received a ten year sentence.

Please pray for Christopher, for his repentence and healing and protection. May he allow God's grace to work in his life. Also for the healing and protection of his son Michael.

Please pray for me and the other jurors on this case as well. I guess I should have more faith in God's plan for this young man, but ten years in prison... what will become of him?

God have mercy on us all.  :'(

Lord Have Mercy on Christopher's soul for the Lord Himself said to remember and visit those who are in prison.
Amen!

(PS, by today, Christopher may have already been paroled)

You are right. I apologize for having sacked Constantinople. I really need to stop doing that.

Great Martyr, Christopher, pray for us.
If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.
