October 2020- 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 at SFPM have been praising God with the financial response of our donors in keeping the needed resources flowing for our prison operations. We were not sure how the diminished revenue to businesses, churches and individuals would be on giving to our work. But God has been providing for our needs and we pray that it continues as God heals our land.
Pray for our prison chaplains’ staff as they work in a stressful atmosphere at prison with the added pressure of dealing with the infections in prison. That God would put a hedge of protection around them and they will not grow weary.
Pray for an inmate – whose mother passed away. Pray for comfort and peace during this time and reliance on God for strength.
Pray for new SFPM chaplains – that their paperwork and documents can be processed in a timely matter to give needed assistance to our offices.
An officer– who is seeking and asking questions about faith. That Christ would reveal Himself in their life.
Pray for LCP administration – as they deal with cases of COVID-19. Wisdom and discernment on how to handle policy.
Pray for an officer – who is dealing with health issues. For healing and strength during this time.
Pray for our chaplain coordinators – Katie Harnish (LCP) and Jeryl Zimmerman (YIC) as they deal with decisions and daily changes in ministering to the incarcerated during these difficult times in prison. Give them the strength to endure these challenges.
Pray for a Female Inmate – who wants to break free from the addiction of alcoholism. That she can have victory in this area of attack on her
Pray for the SFPM Chicken Dinners – On Friday, October 23 from 4-7 PM at Mellinger Mennonite Church, Martins Country Market and Good’s Store Blue Ball. That God would help offset the finances that SFPM lost from the auction being cancelled. Also, that we can find donors that would step forward to help cover the cost of the food.
In my distress I called to the LORD; I called out to my God. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came to his ears. 2 Samuel 22:7 NIV
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. John 15:7
