Kairos Prison Ministry Prayer
Kairos Prayer Ministry
March 16-19, Crozet UMC’s Doug Gaskell will be ministering as part of a Kairos team at Augusta Correctional Center. Kairos ministers to the incarcerated throughout Virginia, but it can only succeed with prayer. Will you partner with these men? Will you take 30 minutes to pray? Don’t know how to pray?
Get a detailed prayer guide here on our website.
Why would you care? The Gospel of Matthew tells us to visit the prisoners. The book of Hebrews tells us to remember the prisoners.
It’s tempting to “let someone else do it,” but prayer is the engine that makes Kairos possible. Make a difference. Change a life. Sign up to pray for 30 minutes.
Guide for your time of prayer for the participants of KAIROS Prison Ministry
Dear faithful servant,
Time spent with God in prayer means a lot. It means a lot to the residents of each facility and it means a lot to the Team ministering to them. Throughout scripture we’re told to keep in prayer, to keep watch, to be always thankful. But still, 30 minutes?
