May our sons in their youth be like plants full grown, our daughters like corner pillars cut for the structure of a palace; may our granaries be full, providing all kinds of produce; may our sheep bring forth thousands and ten thousands in our fields; may our cattle be heavy with young, suffering no mishap or failure in bearing; may there be no cry of distress in our streets! Blessed are the people to whom such blessings fall! Blessed are the people whose God is the LORD!
Lord, my prayer this morning is for that portion of Your church within the prisons of the Vermont Department of Corrections. First for those incarcerated there who have or will come to accept You as Lord and Master; that they will continue to grow in faithfulness, that Your wisdom will infuse their hearts, minds and consciences and that they will be freed from the bondages of anger, addictions, rejection, lusts and others that have been the hallmarks of their past lives. Lead them, Lord, into lives that glorify You. Secondly, I pray for those individuals, employed by DoC, who are known by You and who seek to live according to Your word. Bless them and encourage them for they work in an atmosphere where the Evil One is honored. Thank You for their quiet perseverance. Thirdly, I pray for the DoC and that a spirit of justice will prevail, a determination to seek restoration rather than retribution. Guide and bless all those who are working to this goal.
