Heavenly Father, I 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 I pray for each one, knowing that 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 may be forgiven, and that each one will come to true repentance by trusting in the Lord Jesus as their Saviour.
I 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 I pray. In Jesus' name,
