Yes we should. This is another aspect of christian ministry/service. We should be witnessing everywhere and anywhere we can. This is part of the Great Commission.

Yes, and put your cat on a leash and take him too!
Oldsters love the novelty of having an animal to make over. There are rules to follow to take pets to hospitals, so find out what they are and go! It is neat and you never know how many people you will run into that you know, but didn't know they were unwell. As for prison, I am kind of afraid to go there as I am a single woman, but nursing homes are my favorite.

For I was hungry, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
(Matthew 25:35-36 KJV)

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
(James 1:27 KJV)

As a concillor my advise to you is that you continue to visit those places and each time you go you bring a friend with you and you join hands and hearts together and pray that God will send his anointing and mercies upon these people, the sick, the old, the lame and everyone else.Pray that they'll change their ways and turn their lives over to God.God will guide you and give you the strength to go on,God bless you.

yes! I have visited the jail, hospitals, home for the aged, and even military camps in my hometown and in the city where I studied during my teens. All of the visits were church-initiated. We sang songs, gave medical attention, gave gifts. The visits helped me to understand the plight of the criminals, the sick, the aged, and the soldiers. These visits made me learn and understand more.

Definitely! If it's on your heart to do so, then do it! Not enough of us, including myself, think of those things daily. But we, I, should. Go with God!

If that is what God has led you to do then do it!You will be as blessed as those you reach out to. Even if you stepped out and did this because you thought it was a good thing you would still be a blessing.

It is the tradition of our home church to maintain a connection to the family and friends of the church who are in prison. I have been honored to share in this ministry with a young woman who will soon be released. I would welcome the prayers of others for this young woman and her family.

Yes we should go into the Hospitals, and Prisons, the bible clearly states "Go into all the Nations and preach, the Gospel. Thats Why I love Jesus so much, because He ministerd to the poor.... We as ppl. like to deal with the Rich, but the rich believe that they have it all, and know it all.. we need to reach the lost, and poor... Remember we are to act, and look like Jesus. So go into those Hospitals, and Prisons and let God PPl. know that He loves them, He Loved them so much that He gave His only begotten Son Jesus.

Yes Yes! Yes!If God put it in your heart,do it!You can't imagine what a blessing that will bring to those poor people.But don't go alone, have a little will support eachother and will be able to minister to few people at a time.
God bless you
