around our world, both at home and abroad. We pray for cooler heads, respect for one another, and saner solutions. We pray for the courage to love all God’s children. We pray that black lives will matter to all. We pray that law enforcement officials will be safe in their work, and that God’s house in all places will safe space and sanctuary for all who enter.

especially this month we pray for the administration, staff, corrections officers, inmates, families of inmates of following facilities: Forest County Jail, Franklin County Jail, Fulton County Jail, Greene County Prison, Huntingdon County Prison, SCI Retreat at Humlock Creek, SCI Rockview at Bellefonte, and SCI Somerset.

that they recognize the violence they have committed, that their hearts would be changed, and that they receive forgiveness, mercy, and grace when it is offered and in doing so be changed.
