Prayer thread for all Prisoners and their families

Prayer for Prisoners

‘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 actions 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.’

Father of Mercy, the secrets of all hearts are known to you alone. You know who is just and you forgive the unjust. You alone are the Almighty Judge. We are not worthy of judging anyone. Your mercy is enough for sinners. Hear our prayers for those in prison. Give them repentance and let them believe in you. Give them patience and hope in their sufferings, and bring them home again soon. Comfort their near and dear ones. Let them trust in Jesus Christ and live with hope. Amen

Memorare (Prayer to Our Lady)
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to your protection, implored your help, or sought your intercession, was left unaided.
Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto you, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To you do I come, before you I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in your mercy, hear and answer me. Amen

Father, it is not only the prisoners who suffer during the trial and conviction, just or unjust, it is also their families who suffer profoundly with them.
In consideration of Your Son, unjustly arrested, tried, convicted, and cruelly used, and the suffering and grief of His Mother, please have mercy on prisoners and their families.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.

Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death.

Amen.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Amen.

Amen

Loving Lord please be present to prisoners in their cells, speaking into their hearts and souls of Your love, goodness and truth.
Where they are innocent, please console and bring about their freedom,
where they are guilty draw them to repentance and to resolution to be true Christians.
Grant that their good behavior results in light sentence or avoidance of imprisonment or early release

Their families, though not imprisoned, yet torn by the situation of their loved ones and the consequences, suffer very much with and for them.
Please give them strength, consolation, and hope.
Aid them where the legal costs impacts on their lives and incomes.
Help them to remain strong and healthy despite the toll on their hearts, minds, and their sleep.

Lord, hear our prayers!

NOVENA PRAYER FOR INTERCESSION OF SAINT RITA OF CASCIA


****O holy patroness of those in need, St. Rita of Cascia, whose pleadings before our Divine Lord are almost irresistible, who for your lavishness in granting favors have been called the advocate of the hopeless and even of the impossible; ****


****St. Rita, so humble, so pure, so mortified, so patient and of such compassionate love for our Crucified Jesus that you could obtain from Him whatsoever you ask; on account of which all confidently have recourse to you expecting, if not always relief, at least comfort; look with favor on our petitions, showing your power with God on behalf of your suppliants. ****

****St. Rita, be lavish to us, as you have been in so many wonderful cases, for the greater glory of God, for the spreading of your own devotion, and for the consolation of those who trust in you. We promise, as our petition is granted, to honor you by making known your favors, to bless and sing your praises forever. Relying then upon your merits and power before the Sacred Heart of Jesus, we pray giving thanks that you will place our requests before God… ****

And that God will, through your intercession, Swiftly hear and answer us as He sees fit. Amen.

Prisoner’s Prayer to Saint Maximilian Kolbe
O Prisoner-Saint of Auschwitz,
help my son and all prisoners in their plight
Introduce them to Mary, the Immaculata,
Mother of God. She prayed for Jesus in
a Jerusalem jail. She prayed for you
in a Nazi prison camp. Ask her to comfort
all while confinement. May she teach my son and all prisoners
always to be good.
If they are lonely, may she say “God is here.”
If they feel hate, may she say “God is love.”
If they are tempted, may she say “God is pure.”
If they sin, may she say “God is mercy.”
If they are in darkness, may she say “God is light.”
If they are unjustly condemned, may she say “God is truth.”
If they have pain in soul or body, may she say “God is peace.”
If they lose hope, may she say: “God is with you all days, and so am I.”
Amen.
