On Friday, Sept. 25 at 6 p.m., members of the Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministries will gather around the Forsyth County Jail, 201 N. Church St. in downtown Winston Salem, to form a human prayer circle.

The group will pray for the inmates, officers and staff, families affected by crime and violence, and for the reduction of crime in the community.

The next day, about 100 approved jail volunteers will go into the housing units of the jail and hold a half-day retreat with the men and women.

The theme this year is on “Overcoming Guilt and Shame.”

“In years past, we’ve had as many as 100-plus inmates give their lives to the Lord during this retreat. We are praying for the same or better this year,” a statement from the group says.

Anyone planning to bring a group to pray from 6 to 6:30 p.m. around the jail on Sept. 25 is asked to call Claudette at 336-759-0063 and let her know how many will be coming.

She will assign your group a location to gather and pray.
