Please pray for my friend, Kevin, and all of the men I am working with who are suffering from Post Incarceration Syndrome. In the last few weeks, I have seen two men I knew returned to prison, and two who were killed while back in the “life” of crime. Two more have disappeared, which can only mean that they have relapsed, as well. That is six people who are lost to Gods love at this time.
A few make it, but there is little help, and with all the financial pressures, there is little time to investigate and become engaged in knowlegeable counseling. It is a solid, and incredibly sad fact that nearly 70% of incarcerated men will return to prison after their release, many of them for life.
Please pray for the few of us out here who work hard for them with little help, resources or encouragement. And also pray for those men who really try to work on themselves and whose struggles are denigrated and ignored because of their past sins.
We are desparate for prayers, especially after hearing such disheartening news.
