Between Sunday 9th October and Saturday 15th October we will be supporting Prisons Week 2022 by sharing their daily prayers here.
Please pray with us each day during Prisons Week, these prayers are offered by chaplains, serving prisoners, victims of crime and family leavers – crying out to God, asking for help, responding in faith, giving thanks for his unending love, grace and mercy.
THE PRISONS WEEK PRAYER
Lord, you offer freedom to all people. We pray for those in prison. Break the bonds of far and isolation that exist. Support with your love prisoners and their families and friends, prison staff and all who care. Heal those who have been wounded by the actions of others, especially the victims of crime. Help us to forgive one another, to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly together with Christ in his strength and in his Spirit, now and every day. Amen.
