Prayer For A Prisoner Release
Father, we know You can even use evil for good. All we need to do is to look at the cross, so help these men and women who are incarcerated to know that everything in our life, good and bad, is for our ultimate best (Rom 8:28). Sometimes we don't always understand how bad can be good. Help these prisoners to see that God is not going to give up on them, because Your Word shows that You forgive their sins and cleanse them from all unrighteousness. If these prisoners are able to see that You are still working in their life Lord, they might have hope and know that You have promised to never leave them or forsake them (Deut 31:6; Heb13:5), even when they or we forsake You. Help them to take You at Your Word, and not use their feelings to guide their beliefs. Perhaps You can use others to help them inside the prison Lord, for nothing is too hard for You. Allow them to see the good that can come from where they're at now, and even if it looks bleak, good will come from it, and in Jesus' strong name I pray, amen.
Father God, truly only You know how these men and women feel at this time. We cannot know exactly what they are living through right now. The world seems to be getting more dangerous every day Lord, and maybe for these men and women who might live with that fear. In Your sovereign providence, it pleased You to call out some of these in their darkest hours, and to become new creations in Christ (2nd Cor 5:17); to a new life in Christ. Help see that they can run to You Father, for You are a Rock and a Shield to those Who trust in You. In Your great wisdom God, You sometimes use hard places to soften hearts, and in such darkness, your grace is more amazing. Not many of us are great in the eyes of the world, but You have no respect for persons. You reach out to those who humble themselves Father, so help them submit to You and be set free from their fear by trusting in You. Please Father, protect them on the inside so that they would be able to study Your Word, be a witness to those still sitting in darkness, and submit to authorities which is submitting to God (Rom 13:1-5). God, You alone know the future of these men and women; help them to rest in Your sovereignty. Help them to know they can trust in You. For those who have not trusted in Your Son and received eternal life, please set divine appointments for those who are Christ's witnesses inside the prisons, and keep them safe from harm while being His voice. May You receive all the glory for these men and women's lives that've trusted in You, and in the mighty name of Jesus Christ I pray, amen.
Father God, I pray for those prisoners who are behind bars and that You give those who've trusted in You, peace. Please help them to know that You are sovereign over all things and that much good can come from bad (Gen 50:20; John 3:16), and in even these men and women's darkest hours, You are their true source of light which is found in Jesus Christ. I pray that you give them the peace that Your Word promises for those who believe in Your Son (Rom 5:1) and please help them to know they are no longer condemned (Rom 8:1). With the comfort that You give us, please give to them Lord, so that they might pillow their head tonight in peace, knowing that if you would come tonight, those doors would be open forevermore. I ask this for the glory of the Lord, Jesus Christ, in Whose name I pray, amen.
Father, we pray for those who are incarcerated, but we also pray for their families that they would receive the care and attention they need, and have their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs met by other family members, friends, church members, or someone else. Please Lord, allow them to keep their hope alive that a family member behind bars is still not forsaken or forgotten by God if they have trusted in Christ; if not, we pray for them to know Your Son, Jesus Christ. May the families find comfort from others who are in similar situations and that they would be praying for one another. Oh Righteous Father of Mercy, I pray for these men and women who are cut off from their families and who are serving time behind bars. As you know, it is very hard being separated from loved ones. I pray these inmates may be able to see themselves as you see them, and that they are a child of theirs and are co-heirs with Christ, just as much as those who are out in the world. We know, if they never get out, we will all meet together someday at the great wedding feast of the Lamb of God. If they are able to be released, please shield them from the judgment of others because they have already paid their debt to society, and they are now free. They shouldn't be referred to as a criminal, con, or anything but a child of Godjust like we are. Many of these men and women face that double jeopardy every day of their life after prison, so help others see them as forgiven and cleansed, and a child of God, and treated with respect and not treated as if they're still guilty. I pray this in the name that is above all names, the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.
I need you God.
I know that I will have much time to seek you as I serve my sentence.
I will seek you Lord.
I take my bible, I will sing your praise and I will remember your promises.
You have already forgiven me, for you have laid down your life so that mine might be saved.
Now in the hardship of prison, I will seek life, I will look for you in the darkness because you are always a bright light.
I will look for the gifts in this experience, and trust that you will keep me, nurture me and change me.
Thank you that you walk with me always.
You have found me, you have forgiven me and you love me. I walk upon these truths, I set my feet firmly upon the rock of Jesus. As I leave jail I place my hand into the hand of Christ that I might led by his Spirit. Come guard my mind, let it be filled with praise, may it be full of songs of goodness that declare I am made new. And Lord, as I am freed from this physical prison, might I know your freedom in my soul. Help me to rebuild my life, to pour out love and goodness always and to seek a new pathway for my life.
In Jesus name we pray that Kent is released from the Prison. That he is found innocent of any crime. That his father David tells the truth and that David's mental illness and drug abuse causing his violent actions towards his son Kent is found as the criminal. Kent only defended himself and saved himself from being killed. Please release him unharmed from jail and conviction free so he can live his life as before working hard and enjoying life drug and alcohol free. He knows those addictions ruined his fathers life and he has stayed away from them. He has only helped those in need and has an upright reputation. Thank You God for that. Thank you Lord that he is safe and will be lifted out of that horrible un just system in Oregon City Oregon.
In Jesus name we thank you. AMEN
Lord grant your mercy to free me from the things that have me bound. Lord I ask you to set me free from everything that has attached itself to me to cause me to be bound, both spiritually and physically.
Lord I ask you to create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me. As I walk out of those bars of confinement, let me never enter them again as an accused/guilty person. Wash me clean and make me whole. Help me to renew my mind to think like a free man. Help me to forget all the horrors I saw with my eyes and heard with my ears. Cleanse me of the filthiness of my surroundings. I thank you for the liberty in Christ Jesus. I thank you for receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost. Thank you for preserving my life to bring glory to your name. As I seek your face, satisfy my longings in your righteousness. Thank you in advance for a saved wife that you have prepared for me. Thank you for my children that aren't born yet. Thank you that I might be a man to bring glory to your name and upbuild the kingdom. In Jesus name, Amen.
