    Respect was critical in prison, not of correctional officers as much as of other inmates. Cross into the personal space of a CO and you were likely to be ignored unless you were belligerent. But disrespecting another inmate with anything from a harsh look to an angry word could earn you unending trouble.

    Note: Interesting insight into prison culture and men in general. Eggerich's Love & Respect comes to mind.

    Note: Reading this with Yvonne right now. Great explanation of prayer!

    Begin to lift your prayer life up and enlarge your prayers. When Jesus was speaking with the woman at the well, He said, “If you knew who you were talking to, you would ask more than you are asking.” Do you know who you are talking to?
    Note: When you pray, do you now who you're talking to?
