Heavenly Father, I come to You with a heavy heart as my son has recently been sent to prison and has been separated from me and his family for many years.
Lord, I know that prisons can be such hard and cold places and pray that in Your mercy, You would look down on him in pity, and bring him I pray, to full repentance. Lord, draw him to Yourself, so that he comes to a saving faith in the Lord Jesus.
I pray that this experience will not embitter him, but rather will cause him to rethink his whole life, lighten the darkness in his soul, and bring him into Your family. Keep him safe I pray, knowing that prisons can be places of uncaring brutality and return him to us in the days that lie ahead. In Jesus' name I pray,
