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 – Praise God that He is still moving in LCP and other prisons we touch. It is a wonderful thing to observe chaplains and prison workers present the Word of God and then watch the Holy Spirit take over in an individual’s life as they begin the journey of following Jesus Christ. Ask God to keep a continual fire burning in the altar of the chaplain’s hearts so they can continue to make a difference in inmate’s lives.
Pray for the Youth Intervention Center – Director Drew Fredericks & Program Director Bryan Hubbard and the County Commissioners as they make decisions for that facility on how they best can help troubled young people. Pray also for all our chaplains there.
Pray for Chaplain Seth Crouse – As he works with inmates on the blocks and shares Jesus with them. Pray that he can grow in knowledge of the ways of prison as he ministers at LCP. Also pray for his wife, Liz. and the family while he ministers in prison.
Pray for an Inmate – who is working at trying to restore his marriage while being incarcerated and the difficulties that go with trying to get a bond of trust between each other. That God would heal broken trust for the family.
Pray for Volunteer Chaplain Marvin Lyons – For his continued ministry with the men in Lancaster County Prison and that God would continue to bless the work and impact that he has on men’s lives.
Pray for the Victims – Often the victims of crimes and their family members are forgotten, and they harbor bitterness toward prisoners, and even prison ministry. Pray for us as prison workers as we teach prisoners to remember, and pray for their victims, and their families they committed the crime against.
Pray for YIC Chaplain Rachel Bernard – That God would be with her in helping to balance her life of secular work, part time YIC chaplaincy, and marriage. Ask God to give her encouragement while working with the young girls. And bless both her husband, Tyler, and her as they work with young people in ministry at YIC.
Pray for the parents of an Inmate –Who was found with drugs on him in prison and was sent to the RHU unit. He struggles with how he feels other Christian inmates are treating him since his transgression and return to general population. Pray that this individual would continue to be repentant and he would be able to be restored within the prison church Body. And pray for his parents as they walk with him.
