Prison Fellowship and Reflex

This month, please pray:

  • Prison Fellowship: Pray for the volunteers who visit prisoners in our nearest prisons - HMP Norwich and HMP Bure. Some are lifers, some are sex offenders, some whose home is their cell and who will die there, some help chaplains lead services, Bible studies, Alpha courses etc. and others visit a prisoner because he/she has requested to talk one to one with somebody.
  • Reflex: Pray for Reflex workers in Young Offender Institutions that they will be sensitive, wise and approachable, and be able to get and relate to these young people who often see no purpose in life and feel the future is bleak and hopeless.

Bible Society

This month, please pray:

Michelle Proctor (SIM)

  • for the needs of Mukinge Mission Hospital, where Michelle works as a nurse anaesthetist;
  • for sufficient medical supplies to meet the needs of the patients;
  • for the rehabilitation of the water supply for the hospital, school and local area - the present system is old and the water needs to be boiled and filtered to prevent infection;
