Thank you for taking time to pray for the needs of Support for Prison Ministries and the work of our chaplains and volunteers and those incarcerated that they minister to daily. These are testing times for all and SFPM Chaplains continue to be asked by the prisons to do their jobs in ministering to inmates and officers at this time.
Praise Item – We are thankful that Lancaster County Prison and Youth Intervention Center are opening up again to volunteers and visits for programs. Please pray that this openness continues that God’s word can go forth.
Pray for an officer whose brother has been in the hospital and the officer is the caregiver for the brother as well as working full time.
Pray for an inmate who is pregnant and struggles with her addiction. Pray for safety for the baby.
Pray for a young man who is in the medical housing unit and his family is asking for prayer for his mental health and that he would make the right decisions for getting the help needed.
Pray for an inmate whose mother had a heart attack and is in the hospital in another state. Pray for healing for the mom and peace for the inmate.
Pray for wisdom for those planning the new Lancaster Prison. That there would be plenty of room for SFPM to do Bible education, counseling, and church services.
Pray for an inmate who is being released this month and is requesting prayer that he will stick with Jesus and never return to LCP.
Pray for an LCP staff member that has health issues. That there would be healing and comfort during these times.
Pray for a young lady who was recently released and has her two children back and is working very hard to do the next right thing. Pray that she will stick close to God.
Pray for Director Del Burkholder – as the state prisons are opening for church services again and he travels to different prisons on Sundays to do their church services. Also please pray for Del as he works through the recent death of his wife. That God would provide comfort during this time of loss.
