Correctional and Justice Services, Toronto, Ont.
We are grateful for increased daily opportunities to offer the hope and light of Jesus in our programs, residences and the dark secular space of courthouses and prisons, and for the life changes we see.
Pray for opportunities to shower God’s joy, hope and transforming power on those we serve; discernment and effectiveness in ministry; safeguarding of staff from burnout; faith that God will remove obstacles and expand ministry.
Pray that God will heal families affected by gun violence and crime, prevent children from repeating the trauma they witness, and breathe life into those who have lost all hope.
What does it mean to you to know that Jesus has power even over death? How does that knowledge affect the way that you think about your own death?
