Friday’s Prayers for Prisoners (5/2/2014)

Jesus ate dinner in a Pharisee’s home. As He reclined, an immoral woman, most likely a prostitute, washed His feet with an expensive ointment, dried them with her hair, and kissed his feet. The Pharisee wondered if Jesus were really a prophet since Jesus did not seem to discern the woman’s sinful nature.

Jesus gave a short parable about a moneylender having two debtors. One owed five hundred denarii and the other owed fifty denarii. When the two debtors could not pay, the moneylender forgave both of their debts.

Jesus asked the Pharisee, “Which of the two debtors would love the moneylender more?

“I suppose the one who owed the larger debt,” replied the Pharisee.

Jesus contrasted the behavior of the Pharisee with that of the sinful woman. Then Jesus said:

“I tell you, her sins—and they are many—have been forgiven, so she has shown me much love. But a person who is forgiven little shows only little love.” (Luke 7:47 NLT)

Today, I prayed for gang members in America:

Lord, I pray that the Holy Spirit will fall upon Latino and black gang members and convict them of sin, righteousness, and judgment. And then that the Holy Spirit will guide these gang members into all of the truth. (Based on John 16:8, 13)

What do you think and has the Lord spoken to you?

Join with me on Fridays to fast and pray for prisoners, according to Hebrews 13:3.

  1. Thank you for your continued prayers for gang members and for sharing the vision God has given you for them. Praying with you today!
    I prayed for us to be free to pray for those imprisoned for their faith and / or all other kinds of imprisonment . ..that we press into our times of prayer. (this is for me) I was encouraged to pray from Revelation 5:8, where the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints . ..
    God bless you, Mr. Larry!

  2. Debbie,

    Thank you for your faithfulness. I go through different seasons of prayer. It’s not always what one would call a pressing-in type of prayer. Right now, I’m walking around my neighborhood praying over each house that the Holy Spirit would reveal Jesus to the people and for healing of marriages and relationships. Good exercise and repetitive prayers.

    Good point about our prayers being incense.
