Prisons Week 14th to 20th October:
A week of Prayer
The Prison Population in England and Wales as at September 2018 was 83,052, there are over 94,000 children who have a parent in prison.
This week primarily offers an opportunity for Prayer and here is a leaflet with daily suggestions for prayer.
"......Those who through their own actions, or the actions of others, find themselves engaged with our penal system and those who work and volunteer in criminal justice, can find that they are travelling this path. The prisoner, the victim, the family member, uniformed and support staff, magistrates, prison chaplains — all can find themselves calling out or silently yearning for mercy and grace to help them in times of need....."
Will you spend time in prayer during this Prisons Week.....
