I write this shortly after the shocking death of Father Jacques Hamel in France. More than ever as Christians we need to pray for peace in our troubled world but remind ourselves that God is our shelter and rock.
In London we continue to pray for:
- The Police Commissioners Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe & Sir Ian Dyson
- For the officers staff and staff who work flat out to keep London safe, and their families who often have to make do without their presence.
- For an end to suffering and crime amongst our communities
Finally this blessing has helped me in times of anxiety and stress and I hope it helps you too:
Circle me Lord keep protection near and danger afar.
Circle me, Lord, keep light near and darkness afar.
Circle me, Lord. keep peace within keep evil out.
The peace of all peace be mine this night in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Yours in Christ,
