Crossroads Men’s Crisis Center:  

  • Pray for new and upcoming Crossroads interns that they would grow and learn and also bring fresh ideas and leadership.

  • Pray for God’s leading and wisdom as future collaborations with surrounding agencies will meet more of the men’s individual needs. 
  • Praise God for the fruitful and beneficial collaborations that are in place now.

  • That God would use our visits to Ohio’s prisons to bring encouragement to those who are often forgotten. 
  • That God would continue to provide Bibles and Christian literature, as well as embossed envelopes and reading glasses, to our IOS team for distribution.
