April – 2018
Prayer Request: 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 – Several inmates we have ministered to recently have returned to society and have been able to find employment and churches and are walking with their lives in a new direction. This makes all our work well worthwhile.
Pray for an inmate – That is struggling with being incarcerated while his wife faces serious surgery and he cannot be there because of his crimes.
Pray for Chaplain Isaias Maldonado – That God will continue using him with the Gospel message in prison as he works with inmates in guiding them to a hope in Jesus Christ.
Pray for an Inmate – In a state prison who is near death and the state is temporarily short of DOC certified chaplains that are allowed in the infirmary and have no Protestant chaplain to visit. Pray that the PA DOC becomes more urgent with its hiring or allows volunteer chaplains to minister in the infirmary.
Pray for Volunteer Jake Riehl – For his continued years of ministry with the men in Lancaster County Prison in the mental health unit and that God would continue to bless him and his family.
Pray for invitations in churches, rest homes, and other venues – For SFPM personnel to be invited to share what God is doing in prison with different venues to help bring awareness to SFPM prison work.
Pray for YIC Chaplain Jeryl Zimmerman – Our newest member of our chaplaincy as he transitions from years of working at YIC as part of their staff to a position with SFPM as one of our chaplains. Pray that God provides him in reaching young people for Christ.
Pray for prison guards and staff – Many prison guards are hurting and need the message of Jesus Christ. Pray that our chaplains are near when men and women are searching for God.
Pray for the Support For Prison future chaplaincy plans- Pray for SFPM ministry as it continues to expand in its chaplaincy and prison ministry throughout PA. That resources be provided as God opens doors for our prison work.
May my prayer be counted as incense before thee and the lifting up of my hands as the evening offering. Psalms 141:2
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. John 15:7
