A PRAYER FOR PRISONERS

As Orthodox Christians, we recognize that prayer is an essential part of our daily lives that guides our actions. Through prayer we all have the power to be present with the prisoner. We ask that you remember Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry, its staff, and all those we serve in your daily prayers.

Almighty God, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, come to the aid of those in prison and grant them Your peace in the midst of this difficult time in their lives. I believe Lord, that all of the trials of life are under Your care and that all things work for the good of those who love You. Take away from those in prison all fear, anxiety and distress. Help them to face and endure incarceration with faith, courage and wisdom. Grant that this trial may bring them closer to You for You are our rock and our refuge, our comfort and our hope, our delight and our joy. I trust in Your love and compassion. Blessed is Your name: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, both now and ever and unto the ages of ages.

Amen.
