March 2023

Praise Item – We recently received a letter from an inmate in a state prison, who is in the RHU (solitary confinement) about how he looks forward to our Bible publications that come to him in RHU. While he has done something to isolate himself from the rest of the population, SFPM/Streams of Life gives hope and encourages him to go to the Bible. He also is being released from prison this summer and asks our prayers that he can stay out of trouble and walk in a Christian life.

Pray for an inmate whose mother is sick.  Pray for healing for her and peace for the inmate.

Pray for a state chaplain – who has worked with Streams of Life in the past whose wife has been diagnosed with a serious illness. Please lift these two up before the Lord as they decide the future course of actions and for healing.

Pray for a volunteer LCP chaplain – whose husband was in a serious accident months ago and is currently fighting a serious infection in his knee.  Pray for God’s healing touch!

Pray for our SFPM Bilingual chaplains – Alvaro Febus and Ivonne Ronquillo at LCP and YIC respectively as they minister to both English speaking and Spanish speaking inmates. Pray that God will continue to use them to bring people to Christ.

Pray for a prison worker – who is having suicidal thoughts; that they can receive hope.

Pray for the Prison Conference – that SFPM is holding on Saturday, March 4. Our hope is that prison leaders and volunteers may be recharged to serve in their roles as they learn more from different prison perspectives.

Pray for the SFPM Roast Beef Dinner Fundraiser – being sold from 11am – 1 pm at Hinkletown Mennonite Church.  It’s a drive thru event.  Pray that many people come.

I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. Psalms 66:17
