Prisoners


Those who carry God’s light into our nation’s prisons perform corporal works of mercy
that benefit the prisoners they visit as well as their own spiritual well-being.

Morning Prayer For Fellow-Prisoners by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Morning Prayer For Fellow-Prisoners O God, early in the morning I cry to you. Help me to pray And to concentrate my thoughts on you; I cannot do this alone. In me there is darkness, But with you there is light; I am lonely, but you do not leave me; I am feeble in heart, but with you there is help; I am restless, but with you there is peace. In me there is bitterness, but with you there is patience; I do not understand your ways, But you know the way for me. O Heavenly Father, I praise and thank you For rest in the night; I praise and thank...

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...

Prayer For Christian Prisoners

Prayer For Christian Prisoners Loving Heavenly Father, we pray for the many Christians who are being held in prisons, both at home and abroad, simply because they trust in the Lord Jesus as Savior.  Many have been falsely accused of crimes or deliberately set up to fall foul of the law simply because they are believers in your name.
