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 – Del was teaching a Bible class in a state prison and there was a young man in the class who had previously been at LCP. He was grateful for LCP chaplain Joe Bird and his program, which helped him to seek Christ from his drug problem that led him to prison.
Pray for several female inmates- at LCP who recently lost loved ones and are dealing with grief
Pray for Chaplain office worker Diane Pistone – That God is with her daily in handling inmate requests and scheduling clergy visits to inmates. That God would give her strength to continue doing what she does for SFPM and the prison.
Pray for an in inmate – whose mother has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and will soon begin chemotherapy.
Pray for Volunteer Chaplain Kent Martin – For his continued ministry with the men at LCP. That God would continue to bless him and his family in his work. And especially with his work partnering with Jake Riehl and others in the mental health unit.
Pray for an inmate – who has a hunger for Christ but battles anger issues towards others. Those that minister to him have seen an improvement and a gradual change in his heart. Pray that Christ could complete the work in this individual and by the time of his release he would be totally changed.
Pray for YIC Chaplain Jeryl Zimmerman – That God would continue to bless him in his work at YIC as he leads YIC chaplaincy. And that God can give him strength to balance secular work with his responsibilities of ministering to young men.
Pray for an inmate that- wants to reconcile with his mother and she refuses to talk to him. He realizes he has done bad things, but he longs for a relationship with his mother. Pray she would respond to his contact attempts and the healing of the wounds.
Pray for Lancaster County Prison – That God’s peace and safety be on all the blocks for inmates, chaplains, and staff
