THE FACTS

  • 60% of individuals released from prison in a given year will have committed another crime within six months without community involvement
  • 75% of individuals released from prison in a given year have returned to a life of crime within a four year period unless connected with a nurturing church
  • 65% of formerly incarcerated persons have not returned to prison within a three  year period if they have had consistent involvement with a mentor or a spiritual adviser.

OUR PRAYER

  • We want to pray for incarcerated people
  • Dallas contains the 7th largest prison in America
  • Pray that they would find freedom in Christ
  • We want to pray for families
  • Peace and comfort from God
  • That they would love those in prison well and plead to God on their behalf
  • We want to pray for mentors
  • That God would raise up men and women to mentor those transitioning out of prison
  • “Church, be about your father’s business, and love people enough to say eight words –‘You look burdened. Can I pray for you?’ – and it will change their lives forever.”
