Prayer4UKToday 24 June 2018

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH ROHI The LORD our Shepherd Ps. 23:1 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.

Prayer for Prison Officers and those who work in prisons
Sometimes it can feel as if we who work in prisons have found ourselves in a rut, worn down by changes in the way we work and no longer as hopeful and imaginative as once we were. We see the same behaviour bringing the same lack of progress. May we not be constrained by lack of resources, daily challenges or frustration, but inspired with new hope and new vision by the power of the Holy Spirit, leading us into new and life-giving work. May we be able to lead others to a new vision and a living way. Loving God, show to all who work in our prisons your new and living way to live and to work. Restore them with fresh confidence and vision and give to them the grace and energy to share in Christ’s new life, inspiring others to follow your way. May they know that they have faithful companions on the way of love and service that leads to new life. Amen

Prayer For The Many Inmates Who Are In Prison

Heavenly Father, we bring before You the many men and women who are incarcerated behind prison bars and been deprived of their freedoms, due to their many and various crimes. 

Father You alone know the heart of each one and the reason why they are imprisoned - and You alone are the One that can bring these men and women to repentance, and to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. 

Father, You alone can convict these people of their crimes – and we pray for each one, knowing and You died to pay the full punishment for each of their sins – And Lord although it is only right that men and women face the bitter consequences of their crimes – I pray that they will come to an understanding that in Christ their sins maybe forgiven and that each one will come to true repentance by trusting in the Lord Jesus as their Saviour. 

We pray that You would send into the different prisons around the country and indeed the world, those who would minister to these prisoners in their need, and tell them of Christ and the wonderful forgiveness of sins that comes from Him alone. Have pity in each one, in Jesus name we pray, Amen

Prayer For Those Unjustly In Prison

Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body. (Hebrews 13:3)
O Lord God, giver of justice and mercy. As great is your justice so is your mercy. We pray for those who are unjustly in prison due to their political, religious, racial and other sorts of affiliation or unjustly accused of acts that they did not commi. Grant them O Lord Jesus, true justice and deliverance. Vindicate them with full honour. Give hope and courage to them and their families in their times of suffering. Cause their lawyers to have success in pleading for their release. We pray for the physical and mental well-being of those unjustly in prison. Let all thoughts of suicide be banished from their hearts and let them have that much needed peace in times like this. We pray that they see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living. Cause the prison staff to have mercy on those who are falsely accused and avoid force on them. Let there be no more prison violence of any sort. O Lord set the captives free and inspire men and women of good standing to rise up against all the false accusers and workers of iniquity. We pray for both believers and unbelievers who are unjustly in prison. Let your mercy save even when all hope is lost for them. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen and amen.
Please pray and share with your intercessors, Bible Study Groups, Prayer Groups, Church Prayers, Men & Women’s Groups. Thank you.
