Luke’s story

Sadly many people in prison don’t believe that their prayers will have the same impact as yours. Maybe because they don’t believe in God? Or perhaps they consider themselves not worthy of the opportunity to have a personal relationship with Him?

Remarkably, Prayer Line has given people in prison this opportunity! It’s made space for them to pray!

Below are prayer requests* from some people who called Prayer Line over recent weeks. Please listen to them and then pray to our Heavenly Father for those in our prisons.

Luke first phoned Prayer Line in November. He called almost every day, asking for prayers for his family, prison life and his upcoming court appearance.

He asked for us to pray that he could move wings from his “dark, cold cell and get a job to relieve the 23 hours of daily lockdown.” And then, we didn’t hear from him for a while.

Just a few days ago, Luke called Prayer Line again. His new cell is brighter and overlooks the hills. And he’s got a job helping out on his new wing. He rang to say thank you—that he believed Prayer Line had made a real difference! Luke’s prayers have been answered, too. How amazing!

Luke is one of the hundreds of people in prison to have called Prayer Line to leave a message with their prayer requests since we launched our free phone line in July last year.

Could you support our life-changing ministry today? Your prayers, your time and your financial support will make an incredible difference.

Your gift will help us support men and women in prison, through the faithful presence of our volunteers, and through our programmes: Sycamore TreeAngel Tree, Letter Link and Prayer Line.

Thank you!

Gift Aid

Gift Aid It!Add 25% more to your donation at no cost to you. A Gift Aid declaration allows Prison Fellowship to claim tax back on eligible donations. It means that for every £1 you donate to Prison Fellowship we can claim back 25p, at no extra cost to you.

By ticking the "Yes" box, I agree I would like Prison Fellowship to reclaim the tax on all qualifying donations I have made, as well as any future donations, until I notify them otherwise. I understand that if I pay less Income Tax and/or Capital Gains Tax than the amount of Gift Aid claimed on all my donations in that tax year I may be asked to pay any difference. I understand that Prison Fellowship will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid does not cost you a penny more, but can add an additional 25p to every £1 you donate. When Prison Fellowship receives a donation from a UK taxpayer, we're entitled to claim an amount of tax (calculated at the basic rate of income tax in that year) paid on that donation. Once you have given your permission for us to do this on your behalf, there is no need for you to do anything else.

All that is required is that you must be a taxpayer and that would have paid or will pay sufficient Income and/or Capital Gains Tax to cover all the Gift Aid claimed on all your donations in that tax year. Please note that it is your responsibility to pay any difference.

The amount of tax we claim will be 25% of the total value of your donations in that tax year. Furthermore, if you are a higher taxpayer, you are also entitled to claim the difference between the basic rate which we will claim and the amount of tax you have actually paid. For further details on how you can do this, please contact your tax office. If your tax situation changes and your gifts will no longer be eligible for the Gift Aid scheme please contact us and we will amend your record accordingly.
