City Transformation – Redemption for convicts
- Pray for the people who minister the good news in the prisons, such as Prison Fellowship, that they would have access to the people who are ready to hear, to be carriers of God’s transforming power, and to be protected from harm as they minister.
The good news is that God will accept anyone who comes to him, offering redemption, healing, and transformation of their lives. This includes those whose wrongdoing has landed them in prison. Since only a small percentage of those in prison are there for life, their full redemption will benefit not only them, but the entire community around them.
“Anyone who has been stealing must steal no longer, but must work, doing something useful with their own hands, that they may have something to share with those in need.” –Ephesians 4:28
