Psalm 142:7KJV

Psalm 142_7

To hear the groaning of the prisoner; to see those that are appointed to death

Psalms 102:20KJV

Psalms 102_20

By sin, everyone on earth is afflicted. They disobeyed God’s laws, were detained until judgment, and were imprisoned.

However, God hears the heartfelt pleas of those who are incarcerated. He hears your cries and supplications, and just as He did when He delivered the Israelites from captivity, He is working in his own time to liberate you from your bonds.

Psalm 34

I will bless the Lord at all times; his praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul makes its boast in the Lord; let the humble hear and be glad.

Psalm 34 ESV

Psalm 34

God is ready to swoop into action for us with just one tiny stride toward Him. That action could include starting to study the Bible, making an effort to pray, or conversing with others about faith.

The beautiful promises concerning those who look to God are abundant in this psalm.

Our role is to actively seek out and “go after God” in the best way we can. God responds to us as we pray. He rescues us, removing all of our anxieties.

Psalm 69:33

For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise his people who are prisoners

Psalm 69:33 ESV

Let the groans of the prisoners come before you; according to your great power, preserve those doomed to die

Psalm 79:11 ESV 

Psalm 79_11

God had seen the affliction of his people and had heard their groanings.

Therefore, we should be more fervent in our prayers for the forgiveness of our sins than for the relief of our suffering.

1 John 1:9

If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

1 John 1:9 ESV 

1 John 1_9

Sin is the wall a Christian can build, separating us from the Father and severing our sweet fellowship with Him.

However, if we submit every thought to Christ, walk in the light as He does, and confess our sins to God, He is faithful and righteous to pardon our transgressions and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Mark 2:17

Jesus said to them, “It is not healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners

Mark 2:17

Mark 2_17

Christ was sent to save sinners. Yes, we are all sinners, but many people try to hide the fact that they are sinners, and some justify their sins as failures or mistakes.

Jesus calls us sinners to himself; he came for our sake. He came to invite us to assist him in his mission of saving sinners. Will you answer his call? Will you give him your sins to carry and bear the burden?

Colossians 1:20

And through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross

Colossians 1:20 ESV 

Colossians 1_20

According to what we have read, God was glad to use the death of His dearly loved Son to atone for the sins of fallen man, and this was done entirely out of grace.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation.[a] The old has passed away; behold, the new has come

No matter what your sin is, it does not matter what race you come from or the color of your skin; all people have the potential to be born of the Spirit of God, washed in Christ’s blood, and adopted into His Body because, through faith, we become a part of God’s new creation.

All those who believe are reborn and clothed in the perfect righteousness of Christ. Old things have passed away, and through the power of the Spirit, we are transformed into a brand-new creature that has been adopted into God’s family. Items from the past have died.

Our decision regarding the Lord Jesus Christ determines whether God will judge or justify us. There is no condemnation if we put our trust in Him as Savior. There is condemnation if we do not believe in Him as Savior.

Psalms For Prisoners

When you pray over your incarcerated friend or family member, expect to see results. There is nothing more powerful and impactful in the lives of prisoners than powerful intercessory prayer based on the Word of God in the book of Psalms.

Psalm 145:18

The Lord is near to all who call on him, to all who call on him in truth.

Psalm 145:18

The Lord is near to all who call on him, yes, to all who call on him in sincerity, as this psalm tells us.

Our prayers need to reflect God’s nature as revealed in the Bible, especially in the person of Jesus Christ.

As we relate to God in truth, we all yearn for his presence to be close in our lives. But others share this desire with us. This is the sort of relationship that God also wants with us.

Psalm 107:1-2

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for he is good, for his steadfast love endures forever! Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he has redeemed from trouble

Psalm 107:1-2ESV

This verse expands on the exhortation to praise by urging confession—not of sin, but of God’s atoning work in the words, “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, those he redeemed from tribulation.”

Your hearts and voices should join together in a powerful hymn of praise and thanksgiving to the LORD, even while you are imprisoned. He is good, and His unwavering love endures forever, for His faithfulness stretches throughout time and into the far reaches of eternity.

Psalm 69:33

“For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise his people who are prisoners.”

Psalm 69:33 ESV

Father, the more I consider how Jesus gave up his life for mine, the more amazed I become by the magnitude of what it entails.

That He would sacrifice His own life for me shows how much He cares and does not despise me.

I pray that I may live my life for You because I am in awe of You. Because you freed me from my cage, I now dwell behind my former self and my past. In the name of Jesus, Amen.

Psalm 119:71

“It is good for me that I have been afflicted; that I might learn thy statutes.”

Psalm 119:71 KJV

The psalmist experienced significant hardship in his life. He said, “it was fortunate for me that I have been afflicted, for it has taught me to obey your Word.” The good news about what he went through was that it taught him to obey God’s Word.

God frequently permits us to receive punishment for our actions on earth. While losing something may be all that happens to most people, some may end up in jail due to their errors. Another way that God teaches us to obey his commands is in this way.

Whether you believe it or not, God does not let bad things happen for no apparent reason. He has a purpose in allowing trouble to come our way.

Psalm 51 

Have mercy upon me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness: according unto the multitude of thy tender mercies blot out my transgressions. Wash me thoroughly from mine iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.

Psalm 51 KJV 

What transgressions are you struggling with? What guilt have you been attempting to mask through diversion? Or, rather than bringing your responsibility to the cross, where it has already been paid for, are you drowning yourself in it as a form of penance?

Spend some time right away doing the following: Define your sin, beg for forgiveness, look to Jesus and ask God to break you and heal you, let the spirit comfort you, and rejoice in the immeasurable grace that Christ has shown to you! After all, this, make a sincere decision to follow God’s commands.

Psalm 146:7

Who executes justice for the oppressed, who gives food to the hungry. The Lord sets the prisoners free;

Psalm 146:7 ESV 

God is aware of both spiritual love and injustice. And He administers both punishment and justice.

Justice might not come quickly enough, but we can be sure that it will eventually happen to bar a change of heart. He is a merciful God and will show mercy to those who turn to Him and open their hearts to Him.


Merciful and compassionate God, I thank you for paying close attention to the problems and needs of the powerless, especially those in prison. Lord, I thank you for the beautiful ways you have helped me when I felt helpless and in need. For you are a God of action and acts on our behalf to bring glory to yourself; in Jesus’ name, I pray Amen.

Psalm 107:14

He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and burst their bonds apart

Psalm 107:14 ESV

With Jesus, each day is a fresh start and an opportunity to break through the darkness.

We should constantly remind ourselves that Jesus died on the Cross to buy us a life free from the bonds of anxiety, tension, sin, and hopelessness—free from any chains that might try to imprison us.


We believe each person’s life can be given new meaning and hope through Jesus Christ and prayers.

He can make even the most broken people and situations whole again, replacing the cycle of crime with renewal.
