Richard Anders
My father, a generous, loving, family man.

My dad is in jail, looking to serve the remainder of his life there. I am hoping for prayer of his freedom. It is our only hope.

I am writing in desperation. My dad was arrested nearing six months ago for a white collar crime he has been accused. They want to give him 37 years for this crime they say he has done. My dad just celebrated his 50th birthday in there, where he has not seen the light of day during his stay. If he receives this death sentence he will never be returned to his family again. My father is a loving, kind, and generous man, he is full of life and carries a strong family value. He has two children and three young grandchildren. His fate is truly in Gods hands but with any help my prayers will be louder. Thank you for listening and THANK YOU for your prayers.

Dear Father,
There is a man on the outside that believes my dad is an evil man with malicious intentions. He works for our government and ultimately it could be his cause for which my dad gets put away. And while the reasoning behind his feelings are purely personal, of which my Dad has nothing to do with, I would like to pray for him. Please Father, show him the light. Let him have mercy on that of an innocent man. I pray for this man to have more positive outlets to direct such negative energy. It is a horrible way to live with such grudge, hate, and misconception. Please Father, guide him to that of pure heart. Let him value those things that are precious in life; God, family, love, forgiveness. Father, free my dad from this mans hate. And if he does not see with clarity Father, then I will rest knowing that the truth lies in Your eyes. Amen

11/3/2004 13:03

Eternal Father I ask you to please show mercy on Tavi. He is a generous and loving man. You know his heart and I ask for you to bring him home to us--his family that loves him so much. I ask for you to give strength to Lea as it is painful to anticipate her fathers future. Please touch her with your love Lord and may your will be done. I ask this in the name of your son Jesus Christ -- Amen

11/4/2004 17:54

Please Father be with mine today. Shine your love upon him in his darkness. Let him find contentment no matter his fait. Give him the will to carry on and have faith in his heart. Let him value your love for all eternity. Amen

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leads me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me, thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.
~Pslams 23:1-4~

Dear Father,
Just before bed now...thinking of my father. I know he sleeps, for now, in a dark place and I rest tonight knowing that his path is illuminated by your embrace. Please Father, keep his heart warm with your love, keep his mind filled with your wisdom, and keep his soul close to yours. In thy name of Jesus, I pray, Amen

I know to well of your situation. And I truly appreciate the prayer that you sent for my nephew. God has already forgiven us for our sins. We are spiritual people in physical bodies need to become more God like when it comes to forgiveness.

Father God, I know that you have already forgiven Richard for whatever wrong that he has done. His life has always been in the judgement of your divine powers. My prayer is that we as your children become more understanding and forgiving as Jesus Christ was when he walked this earth. After all that is said and done, God I know that in the end, Your will shalll be done. I asked that your grace and mercy be upon Richard. That he may find peace of heart and mind with the coverant that he has made with you. I ask this is Jesus name, the son the the Living God. Amen.

As Richard has been a good father and husband, remember to give him love and peace of mind to wake each day with hope and serenity. May he lie down each night and close his eyes with the affirmation that there are those in this world that that are glad he is here.

I have not submitted a prayer since November however, I do pray for my Dad and our family every day. Though my prayers are not unheard, my Dad still remains imprisoned. As the days pass, the pain grows in his absence but I remain strong in faith that we will be reunited making us, once again, whole. Thank you for your prayers, it means the world to me.

Dear Father,
Thank You for the inner strength that You provide my family with daily during this trying time. We are divided and incomplete making this time hard for all of us who are forced to live without one another, but divided we may be, will never faulter Father, we are bound by the everlasting love and faith that You instill in us with each day passing. Thank You Father for a bind that may never be broken, a bind that is wrapped in Your love, Father. Thank You for blessing my family with Your eternal heart. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen

Hi Dad,
Thinking of you always, missing you more. Jacob just turned nine last week, the older he gets the more he resembles you. Your not only here in thought and in prayer but in the eyes of my son each time I look into them. What ever our fait, we will see you soon. This is a day we are all looking forward to. I love you, Lea

8/1/2005 18:18

Dear Father,
It is nearing a year and a half since I have seen my Dad. And though his fait is still unknown, I believe that You hold him in your heart knowing the good that lies in his. For this I know he will be given justice. Thank You Father for the strength that I have been given during this time. Though it hasnt been easy, I have learned in this hardship, how to deal with my sorrow in a such way that it has not enveloped me. I could not do this without Your love and guidance. I am enernally grateful Father. Amen

Hi Dad,
It is Halloween next week, as is Mini's Birthday. With every memory we have,you are there; we talk about you with the kids each night at the dinner table and pray for your return. You are present at every Birthday and Holiday.....we never run out of "papa stories" and they always make us smile. And though at times we feel broken in our reverie of you, we know our hearts mend and believe in happiness. We love you and miss you dearly. Thinking of you now and always.....your family.

Last week marked the two year anniversary of my fathers absence. Still he awaits his trial. Not knowing what will become of his future for such a long period of time has taken such a toll on all who loves him. Not only has he been gone but we have yet to see him and our despair only grows as the time passes.

Dear Lord, I search for you with all of my heart and pray to you for my fathers return. I pray that justice is bestowed and we live together as a family. Thank you for all of our blessings. In your anme I pray, Amen.
