DAY 1

MORNING PRAYER 

Prayer for the Sick

Loving Lord,
You always come to meet us wherever we are. 
Give to all those serving sentences in our prisons the strength 
to lift first their eyes and then their hearts to recognise your light. 
Raise them up to stand in your presence and serve you, 
set them free from the power of darkness, 
make them ready to start again and learn to walk in your Light. 
In Jesus’ name.
Amen
