This year’s prisons week of prayer and awareness is scheduled for 9th-15th October.
The theme is ‘Lord Have Mercy’
For forty years now, Prisons Week has prepared prayer literature to enable the Christian community, through individuals and churches, to pray for the needs of all those affected by prisons: prisoners and their families, victims of crime and their communities, those working in the criminal justice system and the many people who are involved in caring for those affected by crime on the inside and outside of our prisons.
prayer leaflets and a short video presentation that can be used in your churches can be found here: http://prisonsweek.org
