How many prisoners have you seen or heard about of late? One, two, a thousand? Whatever the case, there are always prisoners, isn’t it? Are you one of them? “You say Me?” Yes – you. If you say no, are you very sure about that? Lean back and think through this for a moment. Let me show you a man who knew and acknowledged this problem in his life – David.

Who is a prisoner? A person incarcerated in a prison, jail or similar facility; A person held in custody, captivity, or a condition of forcible restraint, especially while on trial or serving a prison sentence.

David knew he was in a prison and he pleaded for help:
“Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise Your name;” (Psalm 142:7a). He actually prayed this prayer while in a cave, running from king Saul who wanted to kill him. So, he cried out to God for help like a cornered cowering fox.

Are You in A Prison?
What problem is there in your life that has battered and beaten you so much that you think there is no way out? Is there a terrible situation you have despaired and accepted as part of you life? Friend, such things are prisons.

Things such as terrible habits, sicknesses & diseases, persecutions, thorns-in-flesh, poverty, witchcraft, sin and so on are prisons. But, finding yourself in such situations need not make you a prisoner for life!

Get Out of Prison!
Can you get out of prison? I have some news for you, from God – “Yes, you can – if you want to.” God is no respecter of persons, if He delivered David, He will deliver you, too. But what do you have to do to get Him to help you?

See this:
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” 1 John 5:14-15

It does not end there, you have to add some importunity to the approach – remember Jacob with the angel? Remember Jabez? Remember the widow and the godless judge? Yes, there is hope for you, if you will ask.

Keith Green puts it this way, “One sleepless night of anguished prayer, I triumph over sin…” Have you ever spent an anguish night of prayer? If no, try it and see the difference. If yes, have you got the breakthrough? No? Go again, Elijah did seven times and he got something.

God has promised and He will give!

Brother John

My name is simply Brother John. Saved and delivered by Jesus Christ just before my 16th birthday, nothing better could have happened to me in my entire life! Read a little more about my encounter with Christ here: Satan Taught Me... https://brotherjohn.org/satan-taught-me-jesus-mastered-me/ .... When I see that something has blessed me in one way or the other, then I want everybody to hear it and get blessed as much, if not much more. I worship with other believers at the The Platts Road Fellowship. In the truest sense of it, BrotherJohn.org is now more than the personal blog of the person who started it, it has evolved into a TEAM of some world-wide believers, who prefer to remain anonymous. The aim of the organization is to spread the Gospel around the world and help the Body of Christ come into her rightful place in this generation. Over the coming months, changes will be made to this website, kindly bear with us. This blog has one purpose: give you practical steps in walking with God. The steps can be found in the fresh Letters From God.
