July 2024

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.

We also ask for these special prayer requests:

Praise:  For the past year, we’ve been praying for the daughter of Jewel Sensenig, SFPM Office Administrative Assistant, as she recovered from cancer and a bone marrow transplant.  She is one-year post-transplant and doing extremely well.  Praise God!  Thank you for your prayers!

Pray for God to continue to move – We have been hearing many stories of God moving in inmates lives at LCP and elsewhere. Pray that the hunger for the Word and the thirst for the Holy Spirit in inmates continue and LCP staff be ready to meet the needs.

Pray for the family of Jim Newsom – Prison ministry has lost one of its most profound Bible teachers in ex-inmate and Pastor of over 50 years, Jim Newsom. A longtime friend of SFPM, and affiliate SFPM Streams of Life, and also part of our Auction during the time he was based in PA. Pray for his wife Diane and family during this time of grief.

Pray for an inmate who is facing serious medical issues and if she has surgery she would have to recover while incarcerated.  Pray for wisdom in making the decision as to whether or not she should have surgery.

Pray for an inmate family member – From a female inmate: Could you please keep my mother-in-law in your prayers her lung cancer has spread, and she is now in hospice.

Pray for an inmate whose son died in Puerto Rico and he is struggling with sadness. Pray that God would be close to their family during this time.

Pray for stability in the prison – July is a hot month in the prison and inmate tempers flare and staff and chaplains have more on their plate in hot conditions. Please pray that God brings a calm peace to the prison.

Now He was telling them a parable to show that at all times they ought to pray and not to lose heart.  Luke 18:1
