Pray for These Inmates and Their Families

Christ, in your mercy, hear our prayers for:

Evan, who has had a rough life and lost several close father figures. Pray also for his son, Tyrone, being raised by his grandma, Brenda. May God provide her with wisdom and provision to raise Tyrone.

William, who recently got off “death row” and is now serving a life sentence. He missed the deadline for Angel Tree; please pray that he is able to maintain a relationship with his 12-year-old daughter, Kyla, as she grows up.

Lord Jesus, for our sake you were condemned as a criminal: Visit our jails and prisons with your pity and judgment. Remember all prisoners, and bring the guilty to repentance and amendment of life according to your will, and give them hope for their future. When any are held unjustly, bring them release; forgive us, and teach us to improve our justice.
Remember those who work in these institutions; keep them humane and compassionate; and save them from becoming brutal or callous. And since what we do for those in prison, O Lord, we do for you, constrain us to improve their lot. All this we ask for your mercy’s sake. Amen.
