In my prison discussion group, one of the guys had something he’d learned and wanted to share with the rest of us. We were looking at the 10th Step of 12-Step Recovery — “Continuing to take personal inventory, and when we are wrong, promptly admitting it.” We were discussing what it’s like to admit that something we’ve done or an attitude we may have is wrong.

God, Help My Victims

At a recent prison Bible discussion group, I asked the guys to introduce themselves by telling their name, how they felt right at that moment, and who they’ve been praying for lately. When it was Dan’s turn, he didn’t have to think about it: with no hesitation, he said, “I’m praying for my victims.”
