During this lockdown, I would like to take the opportunity to encourage you to pray for the death row inmates inside prison, all around the world, and specifically in Malaysia and Singapore. Many of our young brothers and sisters are suffering inside prison, being locked-up 24/7, not knowing when their lives will end. The Bible teaches us that Jesus expects his followers to pray for and visit those who are in prison. In the book Matthew 25: 36 - 40 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you do for me.’ And so, if we are praying for these prisoners and the their families, we are doing it to and for Jesus. They are in a hard place, mentally, emotionally and financially. These inmates often live out their days, feeling guilty and regret, and getting unfair treatments. They need our prayer, compassion and care the most. Let's do it for our kin, and let's do it for Jesus.
