June 2023

 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.

 Praise Item – We are continuing to praise God as inmates continued to look forward and request our services at the prisons and SFPM continues to answer God’s call.

 Pray for an inmate – who lost his grandmother. Many inmates have an extra closeness to their grandmothers who often raise them.

 Pray for an inmate – Pray for an inmate whose family has experienced several hard things recently.  Pray for peace for the inmate and healing for the family.

 Pray for Emily Sensenig, daughter of Jewel from SFPM as she is admitted to the hospital in Philly on June 5 to begin a month-long hospital stay as she gets a bone marrow transplant.  Pray that her body will receive the new immune system and that she can be strong during the chemo.

 Pray for drug treatment ministry – more and more individuals end up committing violent crimes because of drug addiction. Pray for SFPM as we work with the prison on having programs for drug addiction and still maintaining Biblical principles with our teaching.

 Pray for an inmate – who is confused about his Christianity as he insists on bringing Judaism into it. Pray that Chaplains and individuals will be able to minister to him and keep him focused on the important things such as Jesus Christ, the Cross, and salvation.

 Pray for Chaplains – as they handle death notices in prison. Giving an inmate the news of the death of a close family member is very taxing on the chaplain and having the right words and their demeanor is so important to the inmate at this crucial time in their life.

 Pray for SFPM Chaplaincy Coordinators – Katie Harnish (LCP) & Jeryl Zimmerman (YIC) as they make decisions regarding the spiritual needs of inmates and working with their staff.

Pray for SFPM Chicken Dinner – Pray for the Fall SFPM chicken dinners on October 27th at Good’s & Shady Maple, Blue Ball. Martins at Ephrata and Mellinger Mennonite, Lancaster. That it would go well, and enough volunteers can be found to make it a success for the ministry.

Therefore, confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16
