I found a website where Texas lists every capital execution from 1982 on. One of the more interesting things about it is that it includes any last statements the prisoners made. Interesting reading. Lots of "foxhole converts" among them, I note.

That shit is depressing...
Most of the ones i read were of men who were contrite and ready to face the end. One guy yakked about an execution of the guys he was on death row for. He demanded to be set free. Most were sorry and said goodbye to their loved ones. Quite a few utter the god word in the manner of forgiveness. Man that's going to keep me up tonight. Like looking at a roadside catastrophic accident.
Looks like Frank Garcia was doubling down on his Pascal's wager. Just in case.
---------------------------------------------------Date of Execution: October 27, 2011Offender: Frank Garcia, #999418Last Statement:Thank you, Jesus Christ. Thank you for your blessing. You are above the president. And know it is you, Jesus Christ, that is performing this miracle in my life. Hallelujah, Holy, Holy, Holy. For this reason I was born and raised. Thank you for this, my God is a God of Salvation. Only through you, Jesus Christ, people will see that you're still on the throne. Hallelujah, Holy, Holy, Holy. I invoke Your name. Thank you, Yahweh, thank you Jesus Christ. Hallelujah, Amen. Thank you, Warden.
