Lord, we pray for those impacted by release from prison.
For prisoners, whose families and friends have changed.
For prisoners’ families, whose parent or partner may have become a stranger.
For victims for whom the release of the prisoner who hurt them may awaken old fears, grief and anger.
For the Parole Board deciding whether a prisoner is safe to be released.
For the probation service who manage those who are released.
Lord, in your mercy, grant them fortitude and patience.
