Current prayer requests

Pray for the men, women, and children in our shelters that they will find the hope to begin again and that the love of Jesus will surround them as they take steps toward a new and better tomorrow.

The holidays can bring some measure of sadness to those who have lost their home and family. Pray that the men and women in our shelters will turn to Jesus Christ, who loves them unconditionally, died to pay the price for their sins and rose from the grave offering forgiveness, hope, and a new life in Him during these difficult times.

“I’m so very thankful for the Kokomo Rescue Mission and all the volunteers for investing your time and talents, and pouring your heart and soul into the community and into people like me. What you’re doing matters and is inspiring and making a difference in the community. Again, thank you all very much.”
