1 Day to Innocent Man's Trial

Thank you so much for praying.
Your words of encouragement and support
have meant so much to us.

Spiritual warfare is like a boxing match.
We're dancing around lightly on our toes,
holding up our gloves in defense,
and we get punched in the gut.
We fall to our knees and gasp,
but eventually get back up
and start breathing again.

Today we experienced another gut punch,
satan is alive and well,
but we've been encouraging one another to
"Be strong and courageous."

From the beginning we've been praying
the truth would be told,
the truth would be heard,
and the truth would be believed.

Tuesday, January 17th,  jury selection begins.
When I studied American history, I thought the jury system was pretty cool.
However, when someone I know and love
will have their future determined by 12 peers,
I'm not so sure of the system.
From the moment the Innocent Man walks into the court room,
some will have already decided his guilt or innocence.
It's human nature.

It makes me thankful that there's one Person
who can control the vote of the jury-
the True Judge, the Righteous Judge.

May these twelve jurors be ministers of justice
and believe the Innocent Man is innocent.

Psalm 1
1.  Blessed is the man
Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
Nor stands in the path of sinners,
Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;

2.  But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
And in His law he meditates day and night.

3.  He shall be like a tree
Planted by the rivers of water,
That brings forth its fruit in its season,
Whose leaf also shall not wither;
And whatever he does shall prosper.

4.  The ungodly are not so,
But are like the chaff which the wind drives away.

5.  Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment,
Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6.  For the LORD knows the way of the righteous,
But the way of the ungodly shall perish.


Wanna' hear some good news about answered prayer?
Check out my friend Jena's blog.
She and her friends' prayers were
Shockingly Effective.


  1. I've been thinking and praying about that jury for the past few days - that they would be wise people - people with discernment. We'll continue to keep them (and you) in our prayers.

  2. Praying and trusting God. May God strengthen you today.

  3. my prayers for the next few days will be focused on the hearts and souls of the jurors!!!...and for the soul of the lying person to be so heavy that they repent just to feel the weight of sin lifted and the releasing joy of truth to fill that empty hole!!!

  4. Lord God, may you be glorified through this process. Have mercy on the Innocent Man; restore him to his friends and family if it is Your will. Strengthen Mindy with love and courage. In the name of your Son, the original Innocent Man.

  5. I've been praying. Let us know of updates if you get the chance. I'm sure you have many prayer warriors on it. "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." (James 5:16)
