When someone we are deeply concerned about is incarcerated we have no trouble with this directive. When they come home we too often want to bury that experience deeply in the past. Instead I beseech you to continue praying for those in prisons whether that prison is made of concrete and iron or one of the many other forms of imprisonment...mental illness, Alzheimer's, severe physical infirmity, ignorance, illiteracy, fear, self-hate.
I must shake my head when I find someone whose face and body language make it clear that prison ministry is "not quite nice" when in truth we are all limited by something! If you do not have someone safe in your life with which you can share your true self, warts and all, ask God to reveal to you today how you can begin to identify and build that kind of friendship, kinship, sister of the heart. (Hint: You might ask yourself how you would BE that kind of person and start there.)
