The number one concern of this ministry is that those incarcerated and their families willknow a personal, intimate relationship with the Lord Jesus. This ministry is a Christian ministry, which believes the Bible to be the inerrant word of God, as we state in our missions statement, and we preach the full Gospelof Jesus Christ. This ministry wants to build a house for men and another one for women to be paroled to, especially after serving a long sentence. This will take a large piece of property, perhaps even with a farm house that could temporarily house ex-offenders until a new building could be completed. The residents could raise a garden, chickens, perhaps beef cows and some hogs to help them be more self sufficient. This has been a prayer of the Chaplain for 22 years.
We appreciate your prayers and gifts toward this endeavor, and that the program could become self-sufficient quickly.
Pray for the individuals being ministered to, to receive the anointing of God to give them full revelation of His Holy Word.
Pray for the various Christian ministers who bring Bible training and worship services into the jails and prisons to preach only the truth.
Pray for the financial need of the various ministries who serve the Lord and society by helping these men and women “to be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”.
Pray for more churches to want to be a part of the outreaches we are trying to make available to inmates and their families through them.
Pray for regular support so we can begin new programs and not have to stop because of a lack of funds.
Pray for the Chaplain and his trips through the week and for his spiritual, physical, and financial needs.
Pray for the board and associated church and their direction of the ministry and for God's perfect will to be done.
Prayers of Thanksgiving
We pray on and off for people to assist in the editing of the various letters, newsletter, and other material we mail out to business, churches, or individuals. Something we get an editor and before we have a chance to put a thank you on this site the editor may no longer be editing. We want to thank God for three new editors from out last prayer request, ready to assist Artis in the editing for Rehoboth Jail & Prison Ministry. Thanks for your prayers and than you Lord for Your blessing.
We thank God that even though we have had to dip into our Restoration House Program funds we have been able to meet our budget and provide for all of the office needs and travel expenses for the first half of this year.
We are thankful for the success we feel in reaching more church this last year to be involved in the out reaches we provide through them to inmates and their families. We are also thankful for all of the letters from inmates and their families praising God for the work of them ministry and what it means to then. Families and inmates alike have had their hearts and lives changed through the renewing of their minds through the Word we bring.
