Heavenly Father, we lift up the many people that have devoted their lives to ministering to men and women in our prisons and pray that you would use their life and witness to draw many into a saving relationship and faith in Jesus Christ.
Lord we know only too well the path that has led each prisoner to be convicted of their crime and confined to a prison cell – but we pray that in Your grace and mercy You would reach out to all such men and women and send labourers into this harvest field to share the good news of the gospel of Christ.
Prepare each heart to receive the message of Salvation with joy and hope and may many prisoners be brought into a saving faith in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Thank You Father that there is no crime so great that You cannot forgive and no sin too big that it is beyond the power of the blood of Christ to cleanse completely.
Where there is a feeling of hopelessness in the heart of any prisoner or a doubt that God could ever forgive their particular crime – we pray that You would convict them of their need to turn to Christ for forgiveness - and to believe on His redemptive work on the cross - knowing that He is willing and able not only to forgive all their sins, but to clothe each one in His own garment of righteousness – simply by believing in Jesus Christ as Saviour.
Thank You Father – in Jesus name I pray,
