Reading Taurus' prayer request (Sheridan Malachi Dads 10:00) is a heart penetrating reminder of the solemn call to God's purpose behind prison ministry and our call to pray.

I do thank you all with absolute sincerity in my heart for praying for Taurus and the many men and women in prison.

To Him be the glory!
