January – 2019
A Word from Del- I personally want to thank all the prayer warriors that pray for SFPM regularly. You don’t realize how vital this is to the success of the SFPM prison work. I am also personally indebted to you for the continued prayers for myself as Director, as you petition to God on my behalf for the wisdom required to lead in this role, and for my travels to many different prisons presenting the Gospel to those incarcerated throughout the year. Also, I ask that you continue to pray for the SFPM Board of Directors as you petition to God for their wisdom in handling the financial matters of the ministry.
We also ask for these special prayer requests:
Praise Items – For God’s blessings to SFPM this past year as we have seen God continue to move in various ways through LCP and other prisons. We are also thankful for a very strong auction and other needed gifts from our donors to continue to minister to those in prison.
Pray for an inmate – That has converted from Satanism and has walked toward Christ. It is a foreign concept to him to be able to accept the love of God and apply the Bible to his heart.
Pray for Chaplaincy Coordinator – Katie Harnish as she oversees the religious programs of LCP in 2019 and to make them work. Also, that she can be used and blessed in her work with the women at LCP.
Pray for inmates being released – January is a difficult time for many inmates that return to poor situations and sometimes homeless situations. Pray that God would not only fulfill their Spiritual needs but also their physical needs.
Pray for YIC Chaplaincy Coordinator- Jeryl Zimmerman as he brings new ideas and programs to the Youth Intervention Center and that the chaplains will bring a clear understanding of the Gospel to the young people.
Pray for prison growth discernment – If finances become available, SFPM has more opportunities to place chaplains in other county prisons in addition to LCP. Pray for discernment in this area and if this is God’s will for this time. If this is His Will, He would need to draw churches, businesses, and individuals to support the SFPM need for additional funds.
Pray for SFPM prison conference on March 2, 2019– As preparations go into this that it be well attended, and God be glorified through the event. Also pray for the other organizations participating such as We Care, Jubilee, Outward Focus (Jim Newsom) and Potter’s House. Also pray that the expenses would be covered for SFPM.
With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints. Ephesians 6:18 NASB
I will give thanks to the Lord with all my heart; I will tell of all Your wonders. Psalms 9:1 NASB
If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you. John 15:7
