Greetings to you all.
Thank you for the comeback to last week’s PL, including – “A lovely reminder of a lovely hymn! Also, “Very thought provoking” and “Many thanks for the recent prayer letter, it’s always a highlight in the week and gives an opportunity to get some Godly perspective during the working day!”
Messages / Prayers
- Sussex: “(Please don’t get cross with me, – Alice; I too have not had my summer holiday either). However, please can you place in your Diary the following date:- Monday 12thDecember. Sussex Police are holding their Carol Service at 7.30pm at St Peter’s Church in Brighton.” A number of us attended this Service last year, it was outstanding. I was so pleased I made the effort to be there. A large congregation of Police and local church goers.
- Sussex: Prayer Please…….”There’s been a desire for a new Street Pastor Scheme to start up in Horsham Town for some time now, but progress has been slow and until last week, had ground to a halt. Following continued Prayer and some discussions in the last week with a couple of local church folk, it looks like we may have increased hope of getting some momentum again”.
- London: Please pray for patience as the Met continues with it’s programme of change. Pray for resilience for the officers and staff who continue to face the immense stress and uncertainty that often accompanies change. Pray for our Leaders as they make difficult decisions.
This week, the Leader of the Sussex Police Christian Fellowship, asked that we should Pray for our Country at this time, so he has written the Bible section below.
“Over the past few years, the financial and resourcing structure of the Police Service has gone through what can only be described as a radical reform. Theresa May has often been at the forefront of that change and at times, as a Service we have directed our frustration, anger, disappointment towards her. When I saw she was in the running for Prime Minister, I have been personally challenged to Pray positively for her. So much so, that I felt the finger of God point at me and say ‘How dare you criticise those who I put in authority, do you not think I know what I am doing, for I promote and give authority’. Now as I write, the second candidate has stepped back and Mrs May will be the next Prime Minister.
1 Timothy 2 1-3 says, ‘Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Saviour God wants us to live.’
We see how our Country needs Leadership, I see a God that can do all things and asks us to partner with Him and to declare His Authority over this Country. So I urge you to pray for Theresa May as there is no doubt she will need it. Pray that she will be given Christian counsel and that those who are alive in Jesus will be influencing the decision to direct our country”.
