A Word from Del- I personally want to thank all the prayer partners that pray for SFPM regularly. You don’t realize how vital this is to the success of the SFPM prison work. I ask that you continue to pray for the chaplains, SFPM Board of Directors, and all personnel with SFPM. We were faced with hard times in an uncertain economic world and through your prayers we have been blessed. Our Chaplains have daily faced the possibility of being exposed to COVID while during their jobs and responded with courage in presenting Christ. A big thank you from all of us for being such a vital part of SFPM.
We also ask for these special prayer requests:
Pray for an inmate – Pray for an inmate who is at LCP for the first time and for the inmate’s mother who is very worried.
Please pray that the COVID- will pass quickly in 2021 and Bible Studies, regular programs and Church services can return to all the prisons.
Pray for Chaplaincy Coordinators – Katie Harnish LCP and Jeryl Zimmerman YIC as they oversee the religious programs and make decisions at their institutions in another COVID year in incarceration.
Pray for SFPM Volunteers – who are not allowed back in prison till COVID restrictions are lifted and wrestle with a sense of emptiness with not being able to minister to inmates, which has been a calling in their life.
Pray for an inmate – Pray for an LCP inmate who is searching and asking questions. Pray that he finds Jesus.
Pray for the Joel Heisey family – Joel is a part of the SFPM auction and has done a good job coordinating the auctioneers at the Auction. They lost their 12-year-old son Joshua in a farm accident recently. Pray for the family as they heal during this time of loss.
Please pray for a release from the spirit of fear – with inmates housed in Lancaster, and all PA county, state, and federal prisons, and elsewhere in U.S. We continue to receive letters from inmates and calls from family members as COVID has spread quickly in most prisons. Pray the vaccine will be ready for prisons soon and we will see improvement and hope.
Pray for SFPM Board, Leaders and Staff – as 2021 is here and there are decisions and obstacles that this prison work has never had to face before due to COVID. Please guide us in wisdom and adjustments needed to better minister the Gospel of Jesus Christ to prisoners in a new environment.
With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints. Ephesians 6:18
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. John 15:7
