My sweet son
by: Anonymous

Please pray for my son Jake who will be celebrating his 21st birthday in jail.
He is in jail for a year maybe longer. He is my world. He is mildly mentally handicapped and made some bad choices but has a good heart. I am trying to stay strong knowing God is in control but I feel my health is deteriorating. I can't stop crying and stressing. Please God surround us and let us feel your presence. I know you continue to work in my son. I ask that you strengthen and comfort these mothers and their sons. We share a bond and my heart is with these ladies





For my son
by: Gail

Please pray for my son, i never gave birth to him but God sent him to me to help him back on the right path, he had a terrible childhood and didnt know what love was, We accepted him into our family and he saw what real family love was for the first time, sadly drugs where a problem and he got into trouble again, he is now awaiting trial in Boksburg, he had been to jail many times and he used to enjoy it, i think it was an escape from reality, its different for him this time though, he says he never had a loving family to come home to before, he is drug free now for 5 months and his whole outlook on life has changed, we will be applying for bail soon and i would appreciate it if anyone who reads this would pray with me to get my boy home, he has a chance now to be someone and to do something with his life, everyone deserves a chance and he is a good person with a heart of gold, please Lord let my Sidney get bail on his first request, Lord you know he has done bad things but you also know he is a good person who has changed, Give me a chance to heal him with the love of a family and a forgiving God, in Jesus name Amen

God bless every one of you praying for your children and God be with all of our children. Mother Mary pray for us all in Jesus name. Please keep my son Frankie in your prayers he has been in and out of prison and having most difficulty finding his way. Prison has not helped him.

Keeping The Faith
by: Faithful

In God's word, it states that He will never give us more then what we can bare. And if our faith can be at least the size of a mustard seed, then we can see the fruit of God's labor. Dear Sis be encourage for your son will never lose the Christ in him as long as he continue to seek God for direction. I just experience the same ordeal with my 19 year old son. I just continue to ask God to keep a hedge of protection over my son as he used this time to seek spiritual direction. My son is my life and it tares me apart to believe that he is in prison. I continue to hear the words in my mind over and over again that this situation is a test for a testimony. I pray victory and wholeness over his life, for no weapons formed against him will prosper, this is not his battle it belongs to the Lord.
Continue to pray and stay faithful and before you know it, our boys will be a blessing to someone else. Be encouraged!

It looks like our 22 year old son will have to go to prison for his last mistake. Praying for a judge that might have options for his punishment. Asking for prayers for him. We adopted him and he has fetal alcohol syndrome. He started down a path and just could not fight his way out of it. This is a first for our family so my husband and I are at a loss. His first court date is jan 7 th. Our fear is with his disorder he will not have all the tools to survive. Please pray for him his safety and protection and our knowledge and strength to be strong for him. Thank you dear Jesus for dieing on the cross so we could be forgiven for our sins and from that forgiveness be allowed an opportunity to live eternal life in heaven with our father. Thank you amen.

Please pray for my Son
by: Anonymous

Dear God, Please look after my Son and send healing to him, let his heart not harden in the cruel prison regime but please God help him to find his way towards you. I accept that he's being punished for his actions, albeit a somewhat harsh sentence but I know in the bigger scheme of things there are lessons for us all to learn. Also Father please send healing for myself and his siblings, my heart is broken into a million tiny pieces right now and I need you to show me the way. God please give me the strength and courage to get through this, and also compassion and forgiveness towards his accusor and captors, and the very harsh judge. Help my Son and I, to understand the meaning of all this and please Father show him the greater things in your plan for his life. Please also give me the strength and compassion to forgive his Earthly Father who has not been there for him, and has been a bad example of what a loving Father should be. I ask all of this in our Saviour's name, Jesus Christ....thank you and Amen ~ JK

I'm at a lost
by: Anonymous

I want to pray for my son in Jail. We're not sure of where he's going from there He violated his probation again. This time for not showing up and not paying his fines. I love him with all of my heart. I think that he should stay in jail for a few months to get his clear. I don't rest with him in jail or out. I worry about him when he's out and in jail. I ask that you all please pray for my son Jarvis. I'm mentally weak right now. I can't focus on my praying life. I'm worried about his future. I'm not giving in to my weakness, but I do need help. Please pray that whatever outcome is best, is the outcome he'll receive. Please pray for his protection and his mental peace. Please pray that God would soften the hearts of the judge and the DA. That they may want to save him and not help him to destroy himself.

Thank you all, in Jesus' name Amen.

To Cynthia
by: LL

Thank you for the wonderful kind words Cynthia. Also thank you to all the other mothers out there who are in a similar situation. My son has been in prison for a few years now. I also believe it is in God's ultimate plan. He was on a road to destruction. He had a pretty bad car accident before he went to prison. I think God needed to put him in there to save him. I want him to come home now, if it be in God's will. Please hang in there ladies. It is not easy watching our children go through this.

Praying mother
by: Cynthia

I have two son one is in prison, he has life. The other is in jail. I will tell you mothers this, sometimes we don't always understand Gods plan for our sons. I cried many of night up can't sleep worrying about my son who is in Prison. I heard God tell me in the still of the night that He had to place my son in that prison situation to save his life, at that moment I begin to trust God instead of my emotions. God knows best and his ways and thoughts are beyond ours. After that I got a letter from my son and he said "mom they can take my freedom but they can't take my life". My son expkain to me that if he never would have went to prison he would be dead, so I thank God for saving my son. I know one day when God has fulfilled His plan in my sons life we will be together again. To each mother that has a son incarnated God has you and your child secure in his arms. His angels are encamped all around our sons. This to shall pass.

Please pray for Reconnection and Unity
by: Cindy

Our son was arrested a few months ago for drug trafficking and a few other charges. He was reported missing in July 2008 when he'd just turned 18. He was found in January 2009 but had refused connection with the family. We had not seen our son for 7 years until his arrest this summer. He's a very smart and gifted child who got into the wrong crowd. We'd found out recently that he had a daughter whom he not seen for 5 years and a son who is due in January 2015. We have not met either of the girls who has or will be carrying his child. As sad it may seem, his life is complicated and he's in a very dark world.

May God have mercy and compassion on him and bring him out of the darkness into a world of peace, love and happiness. May he go home to his family and reconnect with them. Please pray for our son Adrian who is awaiting sentencing that he'll be released from jail sooner than anticipated and be reunited with his child and family. We pray for our son;s safe return home..Please pray for us in Jesus name, Amen.

My son is in a similar situation and also would never harm anyone. He has been lost and trying to find his way back and when he goes forward he will go back again. He has some depression and guilt from his past. It has been very difficult but we talk alot about how God can use this time right now to work within him to be closer to him and how much he wants him to build a relationship with him. I tell him every day how much I love him unconditionally, the same as God loves all of us.. May God fill your son with the Spirit and give you both strength, faith and hope for better days to come.

My Son Joseph
by: Melette

I feel your pain since my son, Joseph, who is also nineteen, but still my baby is incarcerated and will be going to prison. I have prayed and cried every night for exactly 8 months to the day yesterday that he comes home to me one day safe. Him and I both know that he will be going to prison and that is the future for him, we do not know how much time he will do but it will be a long time. I just hope that he returns to me one day and I can hold my handsome baby boy in my arms once again. We must never take today for granted because we may never receive tomorrow with our loved ones.
I love you my son, Joseph!

Prayers for Nigel
by: Michael

Lord, please watch over Nigel in his time of need. Give him your strength, guidance and grace as he finds his way to you. There are lessons which come out of every season of grief, loneliness and despair. May Nigel and his family be attentive to God's lessons. Believe that God will not abandon anyone in their time of need.

May we accept God's will as our own. My 19 year old son has been there and is slowly finding his way back. I continue to pray for the strength to love and support him. It can be trying at times and at my low point I want to say enough and give up. But with God's support and strengh I will not fail. I will continue to tell my son that his mother and I love and support him.

I truly believe in the power of prayer. Together we can make a difference.

May God love and protect you as you live through these trying times.

Prayer for Nigel
by: Anonymous

Dear God,

Please watch over Nigel during this difficult time and help him get through it with increased faith in your love and goodness. Please help him to feel your presence and rely on you as he overcomes the barriers in his way on his path towards healing and wholeness. Please fill him with courage, wisdom, peace, love, trust, and faith, as these gifts of the spirit will uplift him and carry him through even the darkest times.

I also pray for his mom, Sheri, and for all his family and friends. Please strengthen them during this time. Please fill them with peace, courage, love, forgiveness, and faith. Please guide them to be lights to lead Nigel out of this darkness.

Please also soften the hearts of his captors. Inspire love and forgiveness in their hearts, as well as compassion, so that they treat him fairly and kindly.

Finally, I pray for all others in Nigel's situation and anyone else suffering today in any way. Please help all of us to have patience and faith as we wait in hope for that day when we will be reunited with you and all those in heaven.

Thank you, Lord. Amen.
