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 – Congratulations to SFPM Chaplaincy Coordinator, Katie Harnish, being selected as the Pennsylvania County Chaplain of the Year. Katie was nominated by the officials of Lancaster County Prison and the Chaplains association presented Katie with this reward in front of an audience of Chaplains and Department of Corrections personnel.
Pray for YIC Chaplain Coordinator, Jeryl Zimmerman– As he coordinates and leads the chaplains at the Youth Intervention Center. Ask God to give him wisdom in all matters.
Pray for an inmate – Christ has changed this person while in prison and he is praying for parole. Recently he has learned that his son is dealing with a serious drug addiction. Pray for his son.
Pray for Chaplain Shawn Weaver – As he works and encourages the inmates and as he pastors at ACTS Covenant.
Pray for Prison Volunteer Visitors – That meet with inmates one on one. Individuals like Wayne Lawton, Ruth Burkholder, Charles Ray, and Clyde Hollinger along with many others who take time to meet one on one with inmates who they may have never known before but walk with them through their incarceration.
Pray for an inmate – In his 60’s who knows nothing about the Bible but has started coming to a Bible study because he wants to learn about the Bible.
Pray for the agencies – Represented at this year’s benefit auction where funds are going to go SFPM (LCP & YIC) Jubilee, Freedom Gate, Potter’s House, Revelations of Freedom, and We Care Program.
Pray for the SFPM Auction – Pray that the auction will be well attended, and the goods bring an abundant value to help all the ministries represented. Last year was again a record auction for us and we are hoping to be able to match that again this year so we can give to needed prison causes.
Pray for Auction Coordinator Nelson Martin – who always does an excellent job bringing the auction together. Pray for his strength, health, and wisdom during this time. Pray that all the volunteers will fall into place and help make the auction successful.
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
