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 –. It is a blessing for us at SFPM to be associated with so many aftercares that desire to see men’s hearts change completely after coming out of prison. When it comes to helping those that have fallen there are many ways and God equips us all with different gifts. As 1st Corinthians 12 explains there are many different gifts and members but one body.
Pray for Two female sisters who are both inmates at LCP are struggling. Pray for peace to be with them and Christ would draw close.
Pray for Chaplain Kenny Bowman – That God continues using him with the Gospel message in prison as he works with inmates in guiding them to a hope in Jesus Christ.
Pray for a female inmate– that has written the ministry from a state prison that realizes the price her past life has cost her and her family. She longs for Christian friends to write and encourage her in her new faith and not judge her on her past misdeeds.
Pray for Volunteer Chaplain Jake Riehl – For his continued effective ministry with the men in Lancaster County Prison and that God would continue to bless his work. Pray for continued patience has he ministers to many in the mental health unit.
Pray for a Female Inmate who was recently sentenced to 10-20 years. Pray for her transition and for her to be able to see the good throughout the whole situation. Pray for protection and growth for her as she does state time.
Pray for YIC Volunteer Chaplains Gray & Elliot – That God would continue to use them to bring encouragement and the word of God to YIC residents.
Pray for inmates being transferred- SCI Retreat near Wilkes Barre is closing and prisoners are being transferred to other state prisons. Del has preached at the Sunday chapel service once a month there for a while now. SCI Retreat was considered a very safe prison in the DOC. Many inmates have expressed their fears and asked for prayer that they are put in safe situations at their new prisons.
Pray for The SFPM Prison Conference- Pray for the prison conference that SFPM is holding on March7th. Pray that it will be attended by chaplains, pastors, volunteers, and prayer warriors and that all will be blessed. Pray also for our takeout Chicken dinners being sold at the same time as the conference at Hinkletown to the general public to raise money for SFPM operations.
