Lauren Daigle Worships And Ministers To Prison Inmates In Maximum Security Prison

Celebrated Christian artist Lauren Daigle made a powerful statement of God’s love when she visited prison inmates to share her God-given talent with them.

She is at the height of her career but she still took time out of her busy schedule and visit the Statesville Correctional Prison in Crest Hill, Illinois which is a maximum-security state prison for men and has 3,500 inmates at the moment.

Although Lauren went there to share her incredible talent and serve the Lord, but she found the whole experience was in fact a big blessing to her.

She shared a post on her Facebook on the entire incident, “Yesterday was one so unexpected. It was a day that was more than I can articulate. It was a day my eyes had never seen and will never be able to unsee. We sang songs with inmates whose voices carried deeper into our hearts than the echo of a microphone will ever release. I saw hope in the face of the hopeless, joy in the wake of sorrow, wealth in the gap of depravity, and life in the midst of death.”

She was clearly touched as she wrote, “These people have stories, and they also have souls. I watched heaven befriend those who are often forgotten.”

The gift of freedom that we enjoy, should never be taken for granted. She wrote, “With each day that passes, may I never take for granted what it is to walk around as a free man. I held a bottle of cold coffee upon pulling out of Statesville Correctional Prison. My hand had never remembered that bottle being so cold.”

Lauren used this opportunity to minister and worship with the inmates at the Illinois prison.
