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 – In prisons there are often inmate prayer teams that form and pray for loved ones on the outside and other inmates. In one prison we minister in, an inmate’s mother had a stroke and a week later after prayer by the team she no longer showed any signs of a stroke. There was much rejoicing! This and similar healings with family members have given this prisoner prayer team a renewed commitment to prayer.
Pray for a church – That is trying to help a mental health inmate that is being released and trying to find housing in a safe environment for him. Prison aftercare houses are often not equipped to help in the mental health capacity. Mental health and crime are some of the most difficult tasks for those in prison rehabilitation. Also pray that God would raise up Christians to be called to this field.
Pray for Chaplain Isaias Maldonado – That God will continue using him with the Gospel message in prison as he works with inmates in guiding them to a hope in Jesus Christ.
Pray for an Inmate – who had a heart attack. Pray that proper medical treatment could be administered to him and that he would also fully trust in Christ as he goes through this time.
Pray for Volunteer Dennis Nolt – For his faithful years of ministry with the men in Lancaster County Prison. That God would continue to use him a he presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Pray for YIC Chaplain volunteer Elliot Good – Elliot is a former YIC chaplain who continues to volunteer as a Bible teacher at YIC. Pray that God provides in reaching young people for Christ.
Pray for the Schuylkill County Women’s chaplain Joy Cordright – SFPM, in conjunction with Jubilee Prison Ministries of Lebanon, have placed chaplains in Schuylkill County. Pray for Joy as she connects with women at the prison and directs them to the good news of Jesus Christ.
Pray for the Streams of Life literature getting into prisons. Pray for SFPM state ministry, Streams of Life, as all books and literature are being slowed to state prisoners. All literature to prisoners needs to be scanned for drugs and the DOC scanning facility is bogged down and often running well over a month behind in getting literature to inmates. Pray that God would speed up the process so Gospel literature could get to the prisoners.
May my prayer be counted as incense before thee and the lifting up of my hands as the evening offering. Psalms 141:2
I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. Psalms 9:1 NASB
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. John 15:7
