How an angry ex-military inmate with double life-sentences finds peace, physical healing, and a new sense of service [Video]

Many in prison have un-dealt-with anger issues. Anger then leads to fights, which leads to more trouble. It can be an vicious cycle.

When an angry man (prone to fighting) meets Christian Science Chaplain Dave (who tells the man’s story), and God and prayer get involved, you quickly see how spiritual transformation changes the trajectory of this man’s life.

But there’s more! The inmate’s change of character brings about physical healing.

If you want to learn more about how God’s transforming power works, this video is right up your alley.

    Dave, you radiated unconditional love, your inmate friend radiates that same love and then a doctor witnesses that love in action blessing other inmates and knows he has to find out why its so powerful and who is the guy that started this healing movement which is both seen and felt by many. You, Dave, are letting your light shine in the darkness and your candle wick is one lighting up many. Well done, good and faithful servant.

    The love expressed is better than hecatombs of gushing theories and stereotyped borrowed speeches!

    It is so inspiring to hear of your prayerful work in the prisons Dave. The way you patiently dealt with this man for years. First with the Monitor and then were led to offer prayerful treatment for the broken hand. The resulting healing and the way study and prayer transformed the man’s life and character is most compelling. We should all send this healing to our local prison or jail Chaplains so they may witness the Christian healing ministry of Christian Science. Very grateful for all you do.

    It is wonderous how just the right words to say, the acts of gentle out-reach that can help lift someone up into light, are so perfectly given by God to His listening children. Thanks Dave for listening.

    Thank you, David!! Great progress! I love this healing! It’s so encouraging for all of us to read about your victories. Your victories are our victories. They give us all hope and keep us facing in the right direction.You are doing great work. Bless you. It’s so obvious you are working where the need is. Where the need is is where there is great receptivity to the spiritual idea. Your experience with this gentleman proves this. And your obvious metaphysical preparation for your work is an inspiration as well.

    He may be in a double life sentence, but it sounds like he’s a double blessing these days!
