Welcome To The North East Prison Ministries Prayer Network

Where God hears your prayers

Hello and welcome to the Prayer Network

Whatever you or your loved ones are facing, you can count on this committed group to support you through prayer. Our ever-loving Lord and saviour has promised that he will never leave you nor forsake you. You can be assured that he will be with you through your trials.

Mat. 25:36-43

was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me.’

37 “Then the righteous will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You drink? 

38 When did we see You a stranger and take You in, or naked and clothe You? 

39 Or when did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 

40 And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

41 “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: 

42 for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink;

43 I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’

About Us

Our current prison ministry prayer team leaders reside in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New York City, and South Carolina.  There have been over 350 Christians who have volunteered to pray for individuals who are incarcerated, as well as their friends and family members.

Paul wanted them to increase in their knowledge of Jesus Christ. He would often meet with little groups of men and women who loved Jesus, and bow with them in prayer, asking God to teach them how to maintain a living connection with Him. And he often pleaded with God to keep them from evil and help them to be earnest, active missionaries. Unlikely Leaders pg. 97

What we can do for you

Nutrition Plans

Victor Valley prison in California, had a program that, over a seven year period realized a decline in recidivism for released inmates from 95% to 2%.  The program consisted of the implementation of Weimar’s NEWSTART lifestyle principles. Nutrition, Exercise, Water, Sunshine, Temperance, Air, Rest, and Trust in God.  The inmates also participated in classes for anger management, job readiness, and Bible studies.

Weight Loss

To lose weight on a whole food plant-based diet, remember to:
  • Transition slowly.
  • Eat a variety of whole food plantbased foods (and stop stressing about deficiencies)
  • Avoid skipping meals.
  • Fill up on gluten free whole grains.
  • Cut out saturated oils and fats.
  • Keep going even when you hit a snag.

Mental Health

Our wrong habits of life have lessened our mental and physical sensibilities, and all the strength we can acquire by right living, and placing ourselves in the best relation to health and life, should be devoted unreservedly to the work which God has assigned us. Testimonies no.11

Home training

Regular brisk walking can help you:
  1. Maintain a healthy weight.
  2. Prevent or manage various conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.
  3. Strengthen your bones and muscles.
  4. Improve your mood.
  5. Improve your balance and coordination.

Work/Life balance

“Work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other four balls—family, health, friends, and integrity—are made of glass. If you drop one of these, it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered.”

“You can’t truly be considered successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles.”

“No one on his deathbed ever said, ‘I wish I had spent more time at the office.’”

“When in doubt, choose the kids. There will be plenty of time later to choose work.”

Cardio

Much of the earlier research on vegetarian and plant-based diets didn’t distinguish between these different choices, so researchers at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health scrutinized dietary data from more than 200,000 nurses and other health professionals taken every two to four years. Over the 20-year follow-up, just over 8,600 people were diagnosed with heart disease. People who followed a plant-based diet rich in healthier plant-based foods were less likely to develop heart disease. But those whose diets contained the less-healthy plant foods were more likely to succumb to heart disease. Very few of the participants were vegan; in fact, most of them consumed between three to six servings of animal-based foods per day.
