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– An inmate who spent time at Lancaster prison was grateful to the chaplains that worked with him to help turn his life around. The Bible studies have allowed him to draw nearer to Christ and has given him a new focus on life.
Pray for inmates- At LCP with mental health needs that they would get the care and patience they need, and they can see God’s love through our chaplains.
Pray for Chaplains Tyrone and Vernell Hightower – That God will continue using them with the Gospel message in prison as they work with inmates in guiding them to a hope in Jesus Christ. They both have been a blessing to us at LCP.
Pray for an inmate –That Streams of Life has ministered to over the past 16 years in different prisons. He is currently at the hospital prison in Laurel Highlands, knowing his time on earth is near. He is a believer but struggles with the sadness of not having family around him as he is on this final journey of life.
Pray for the church groups – Who minister to the inmates at LCP and YIC as they bring the word of God to transform men and women to Christ. That they can observe security guidelines and still present the Gospel of Jesus Christ clearly to inmates.
Pray for the Auction Committee– As representatives of the agencies that share the money given by SFPM gather and plan for our October 25 & 26, 2019 auction.
Pray for the County Commissioners- That God can guide them in making the best decisions for LCP & YIC and everyone involved from prisoners to staff. Also, for the upcoming elections that God would put people in place who would see His hand and purpose in corrections.
Pray for YIC Chaplain Smita Groff – Smita is an ex-YIC employee with a Bible degree from Lancaster Bible College, who has graciously agreed to fill in for Chaplain Rachel Bernard while Rachel is out on maternity leave. That God would use her for encouragement while working with young ladies.
Pray for several inmates that have been released– That we have ministered to at LCP and other places to be able to find churches where they are welcome and can be received and ministered to. That God would finish the work of restoring them to the Church Body
Pray for the financial needs of SFPM– Pray that we will have a good summer in donations to help cover the expenses of our ongoing prison work.
