Prayer For Inmates

Heavenly Father, life in prison is very hard, especially for those who have gone there for the very first time. Lord, please comfort them, and give them the strength to face one day at a time. See them through these tough times and let them come to know you as the God that comforts them. Lord, even though they have sinned against you, I know that you have forgiven them and you're going to turn their lives around if only they can believe in you. Instead of looking for comfort in other things, please help them to turn to you. Remind them of how much you love them. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Dear Jesus, because of your unconditional love we who were once prisoners to the devil are now free. But Lord, there are people in this world, especially those who are in prison that do not know about your unconditional love. Jesus, send the right people to preach to them the true gospel that they may know how much you love them and embrace that love so that they can experience true freedom even when they are still behind bars. I thank you, and I honor you highly for you are the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Amen.

Awesome God, creator of heaven and earth I come before you today to worship and bless your holy name. You are from everlasting to everlasting, and there is none like you, my Father and King. Thank you, Father, for making it possible for us to find our true identity in Christ and not in ourselves. Lord, I pray for people in prison that are struggling with their identity. Help them to know that their true identity is in Christ and not in what they have done. May they find freedom in Jesus and live a life that is pleasing unto you. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

Heavenly Father, while some of the prisoners are not sorry for what they have done, others feel guilty, and they are struggling with condemnation. Dear Lord, touch their hearts and help them to find hope in you. Help them to know that even though they have sinned, Jesus paid for their sins at the cross and they are no longer under condemnation. Help them to find hope in salvation and your love. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Dear God, your word says that we cannot be drawn to you unless the Holy Spirit convicts our hearts. Let your Holy Spirit convict the hearts of prisoners all over the world that they may draw near to you through the word. God, while we can only preach the gospel, you're the one who saves people. Break their hearts of stones and help them to know that you are the living God, no one is above you and nothing is too difficult for you. Thank you, Father, for answering my prayers. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Oh Lord, so many men and women have been locked behind bars for breaking the law. Lord, we know that you do not hate them, but you hate the sins they committed. Father, touch their hearts and bring them to full repentance. Please help them to see prison as a place where they have been given another chance to change their lives and become better people in society and for the kingdom of heaven. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.

Awesome God, have mercy on your children that have been incarcerated in prisons all over the world. Let your light shine upon them that they may turn their lives around for the better. May they know who you are and your mercies towards them irrespective of what they have done. Please give them the grace to manage prison life and help them to become the men and women that you created them to be for the glory of your holy name. In Jesus' name, I pray. Amen.

Father God, I lift everyone that is in prison into your able hands. Lord, they have not only broken the law, but they have sinned against you. Forgive them for going against your word. Life in prison is tough and most people, especially new inmates, are at the mercy of old inmates. But Father, we know that you are in charge of their lives and you will not let anyone hurt them. Cover them with your wings and keep them safe. In Jesus' name, I believe and pray. Amen.
