Today, we bring before You those who volunteer in our prisons.
Thank you for calling them into Your service, to bring Your love to those who are incarcerated.
We ask that You will strengthen them for Your work and fill them with Your Holy Spirit.
As they support those who are aggressive, give them the gift of patience.
As they comfort those who mourn, give them Your compassion.
As they sit with those who have reached the end of themselves, please speak through the silence.
As they join in moments of joy, fill them with Your gladness.
And when they are just able to be present, come in Your holy presence.
In Christ’s Name.
