Death Penalty Update- February 2022

Written on: January 31, 2022

Pray for an end to the death penalty,
for those scheduled for execution,
for the victims of these crimes and
all whose lives have been
impacted by violence.


Scheduled Executions for January 2022

17 Gilbert Ray Postelle, OK


Matthew Reeves, was incorrectly listed as Oklahoma. It should have been Alabama. His execution has been stayed.

We look forward to the day when this notification will be unnecessary. Let us continue to pray and advocate for an end to the death penalty. We also need to remind President Biden of his promise to end the Federal Death Penalty.
