Here is information on a program that might prove helpful for those recovering from substance abuse. Located in Blue Island (IL), Guildhaus  has been working with recovering substance abusers for 25 years. The center may be worth a look so here’s the website:

Cry of the Streets 

A Willow Creek Jail and Prison Ministry:

“Don’t forget about those in prison. Suffer with them as though you were there yourself. Share the sorrow of those being mistreated, as though you feel their pain in your own bodies.”

Crossfire Prayer Cards

Posted: April 13, 2012 in Uncategorized

I’ve added a new element to the Crossfire website. It” called the Crossfire Prayer Card. If you go to the top index on this website, you find a number of pages where you can find information related to this site. Among them you will discover one listed as Prayer Cards.  When you open this page you will find a “weekly” Crossfire Prayer Card. Each card will provide a specific person that can be prayed for that week. I believe that prayer changes things so I would suggest that you open up the PDF and print copies of the prayer card and send them to incarcerated friends and relatives. I’m sending these cards out to guys I know so don’t be shy. I envision these cards being posted on the walls of individual cells; encouraging and guiding the prayers of inmates in a way that will not only help transform their lives, but will help to positively alter the attitude and environment in which they live. And don’t forget, you can also post them around your own homes as a reminder of what your friend or relative is praying for too! Please let me know if you have suggestions for things that can be printed on the prayer cards. Examples of the prayer cards are found below:
