Prison Ministry Praying Moms
“I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me. Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will say, ‘I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’” Matthew 25: 36-40
As the Moms in Prayer USA Prison Ministry Liaison, Nancy Turock works with 12 dedicated State Prison Liaisons and 140 volunteers in teams across 40 states to bring Moms in Prayer to incarcerated mothers. These mothers, who feel helpless and hopeless about doing anything for their children while in prison, discover through Moms in Prayer that they can actually do the very best thing for them – pray! For their children to belong to the Lord and live a Christian life, for safety, protection, caring teachers and success in school, Christian friendships, financial stability, and a chance to realize their dreams, are the timeless concerns and hopes of Christian mothers. In the process, we’ve also seen how Moms in Prayer changes the hearts of these incarcerated women, connects them with other Christian mothers in their facility, gives them a new attitude and cooperative spirit as they serve their time, and helps them return to their communities and lead changed lives.
There is always a need for more volunteers to pray with incarcerated moms. If you have a heart for these women and want to learn more about bringing prayer into the prisons, please contact Nancy Turock at Prison@MomsInPrayer.org
Incarcerated mothers typically feel helpless and hopeless. They often believe they can’t do anything to help their children, or improve their relationships with them. And those mothers with adult children, especially with long prison sentences, can experience a lack of communication and outright rejection by their sons and daughters. Our volunteer teams across the country report how God works through Moms in Prayer to reach these women. Read more
