Jail/Prison Ministry Resources

I am compiling a list of resources that I hope will be helpful to you as you labor for the Lord in jail and/or prison ministry. I hope to add to the list, so please give feedback in the comment section below as to what you are looking for and maybe I can find it or write it for you!

“Then these righteous ones will reply, ‘Lord, when did we ever see you hungry and feed you? Or thirsty and give you something to drink?  Or a stranger and show you hospitality? Or naked and give you clothing? 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 the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!’” Matthew 25:37-40
