Sheriff cites 600 percent boost in drug arrests since local churches started praying
When Scott County, Tennessee, residents began praying for his officers, dramatic things happened, says Sheriff Mike Cross.

He says drug arrests went up 600 percent.

He says that some time ago, he and Scott County Commissioner David Day decided they needed divine intervention. So, they approached local pastors, such as Baptist Minister Kermit Phillips, who agreed to ask their congregations to pray for law enforcement officers — and other problems such as unemployment.

“We still believe, as the scripture says, righteousness exalts a nation and sins can reproach to any people,” says Phillips. He says more than a dozen local ministers took up the challenge and started holding monthly prayer circles on the courthouse lawn back in April 2011. ...

I would suggest people look over Post Hoc Reasoning which you will eventually get to by looking at "Mission Critical," in The Christian and the Mind While formal logic perhaps not exactly what Gil had in mind when he preached, Our Mind & the Use of Our Gifts, IHCC does carry the only logic book written by Christians, according to the "Our Mind..." article, Come Let Us Reason. You should pick up a copy somewhere!

Anyway, perhaps all this praying made the laity and leaders more watchful and this helped catch the criminals. It never hurts to pray, (q.v. Prayer) but the increase of the arrests might not be attributable directly to this?
