Pray for the mom of a prisoner

When I sit in prison waiting rooms, hoping to visit an inmate, I am regularly touched by the pain I see in the eyes of moms there to see their offspring.

This Sunday, as you pay tribute to your own precious mother, remember that we have some 50,000 people in prison right here in Michigan, and many of them still have living mothers. Say a prayer for moms of prisoners.

A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path."-- Agatha Christie
