Family Visit to Prison: What to expect?2 min read

Having a loved one serving time in prison can be upsetting due to the amount of time being spent apart from one another. It is important to keep spirituality in check through family visits so that those serving time do not succumb to feelings of depression help each other learn to forgive one another and seek God to give them strength to do so. Forgiveness is essential in the process of healing for both parties. Holding onto grudges will only lead to a heavy heart and unhealthy mind therefore we must cleanse ourselves from such negativity. “Bear with one another and, if one has a complaint against another, forgive each other; as the Lord has forgiven you, so you also must forgive.” – Colossians 3:13

Pray for forgiveness for a family member in prison The bible has always expressed that family must show unconditional love especially to those who have sinned. If you or a loved one needs someone to help mend the relationship through these extended family visits, do not hesitate to reach out to our team of faith for mediation and prayer. Arrange for a family visit and pray for the family member in prison.

This arrangement will not only help the family members cope through extended family visits, it will also provide a sense of belonging for the individual who is serving time behind bars. We must believe in the power of forgiveness in order to help uplift the heavy burden that we carry in our hearts in order to move on with our lives. Do not feel ashamed to seek forgiveness. God will always forgive those who repent for their sins. “Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger, brawling and slander, along with every form of malice. Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.” Ephesians 4: 31-32 Let’s end the rift between families. It is important to show those who have sinned that they still have a place to call home and that they will not be judged for their past actions. Receive assistance and arrange a family visit.
