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.
We also ask for these special prayer requests:
Praise Item – That a portion of pre-Covid ministry to Lancaster County Prison is returning to normalcy now with our chaplains and volunteers. The additional volunteer staff has been a blessing to our full timers as it helps with ministering to inmates during the hot times of summer.
Pray for Warden Steberger and administration as they continue to lead through this time and future decisions on COVID variants affecting Lancaster County Prison.
Pray for COVID situations – with the new Delta Variant bringing talk of returning to some restrictions in gatherings. That God would spare LCP and we do not return to restrictions on our prison work and visits from volunteers to prison.
For an LCP counselor – whose sister passed away unexpectedly. That God would give peace to the counselor and family during this time of loss.
Pray for patience in the summer heat – Pray for officers and inmates and our chaplains as they work and live in hot conditions in the prison. Pray that God keeps the prison peaceful during these times.
Pray for an inmate who was raised in a Christian home but has walked away from Jesus. His parents are praying that his incarceration will open his eyes to his need for Jesus
Pray for chaplains – Tyrone and Vernell Hightower, we are thankful for the work they have done in the past at LCP. We pray that God would minister to them in health and encouragement in this current season of their lives.
Pray for the Children of the incarcerated – that God would provide comfort and healing to those children that are experiencing the loss of a father or mother due to imprisonment. Also, the humiliation that goes with that for a child.
Pray for SFPM fundraising – summer is a time when giving can be down and now with the loss of our SFPM auction we are praying God will continue to provide different ways of providing us we the resources needed to make up the difference. Pray for the SFPM Board as they work with this challenge also
And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him. 1 John 5:15
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. John 15:7
