Prison Week’s 2009 theme announced: Hold fast to hope

August 20, 2009

The primary aim of the committee remains unchanged, that is to pray
for and raise awareness of the needs of prisoners and their families,
victims of crime, prisons staff and all those who care. This is
reflected in the Prisons Week Prayer:

Lord, you offer freedom to all people.
We pray for those in prison.
Break the bonds of fear and isolation that exist.
Support with your love prisoners and their families and friends,
Prison staff and all who care.
Heal those who have been wounded by the activities
of others, especially the victims of crime.
Help us to forgive one another.
To act justly,
love mercy and walk humbly together with Christ in His strength
and in His Spirit, now and every day. Amen.

the committee consists of representatives of Christian denominations
and Christian organisations supporting prisons ministry.
