Pray

Ongoing prayer for the men and women behind bars are essential. If you would like to be part of our prayer team or just pray as an individual, let us know at hopebehindbars@gmail.com

Here are some prayer points. Pray for:

  • The prisoners in Thai jails, that God would soften their hearts so that they will be receptive to the truth and God’s love for them.
  • For physical wellness and strength to persevere the hardship.
  • Strengthened faith and hope for a future as well as protection against temptation.
  • For the Thai team who minister to all the inmates in Isaan.
  • The families of all the prisoners.
  • The prison authorities for grace in handling the prisoners.
  • Those who have been released, for perseverance and protection on the outside.

Finances

We support the principle of equal giving and distribution amongst the brothers and sisters behind bars. The more we have to bless them with, the more the individuals receive. During the monthly visits to the prisons, the Thai team prepare care parcels for the inmates which are distributed during their inside visit. These care parcels consist of basic toiletries which the inmates are forced to buy from the prison shops at inflated prices. 

We also occasionally require finances for projects such as t-shirts for the inmates or guitars for the worship teams. Please look out for these on the website as they arise. A hand of hope goes a long way in making a difference to their lives inside prison. To make a donation please follow the link under give a hand of hope
