CLI Prison Alliance

Prison Alliance’s mission is impacting God’s Kingdom by sharing the Gospel with the incarcerated and discipling them through its Bible study program.. They believe ALL people are sinners, and we are ALL in need of the grace of Christ. To accomplish receiving and growing in this grace, they partner with chaplains, ministry leaders, inmates, and volunteers.

    • Pray for Bible studies to lead to new disciples as they are introduced to the gospel.
    • They are receiving 20,000 new, large-print Bibles to distribute. Pray for the Lord to open the hearts of publishers and partners to help meet this worthy goal — these Bibles remain the number one request from prisons across the country.
