Pray

Current prayer requests

Pray that the men, women, and children in our shelters will find eternal hope and joy in the glorious resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Every holiday brings 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 intensely, died to pay the price for their sins and rose from the grave offering forgiveness, hope, and a new life in Him.

“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.”
