Last week I mentioned that I would shortly be attending the Baptismal Service of one of our PCSO’s. This I did with others from Surrey Police, including a former Officer who read the passage of Scripture from Luke 3. 21. “Jesus was also Baptised”. This happening for Ollie took place out in the countryside in the River Wey in Hants. At the moment this verse was read I had a true sense of the meaning of Jesus’s Baptism. It was a very powerful time for me, knowing that He too had been Baptised in a river.
Our continued Prayers please –
* Healing for Helen Collins.
* Both Chief Constable Olivia Pinkney in her new position in Hampshire and also our Surrey Chief Constable, Lynne Owens as she continues in her calling as the General Director in the National Crime Agency.
* Another Funeral in Surrey this week, this time for PC Sarah Crockford. Thinking of her Family, Friends and Colleagues and for those involved in the Service.
* In London please pray for continued peace on the streets, and a reduction in the peak in hate crime we are witnessing since the brexit referrendum
Again today a group of us have met Prayer. There are Prayer Times and there are Prayer Times. This today was one of those special times where we were battling in Prayer, for those in the Group with specific happenings within the Force; yet sensing we were talking to a caring Father who loved us greatly and was there for us. At one point, one of our Inspectors said “HERE FOR SUCH AS THIS”. We gave thanks to God for placing His Children in such positions to deal with difficult problems and realising that He had called His Children to undertake these tasks. It was only then, that I knew the verse for today’s Prayer Letter. “You are here for such a time as this” Esther 4.14.
Again be encouraged no matter how tough things are right now, He is aware of where you are and He has called you to do the work you are doing. He trusts you and walks alongside you as you progress this calling.
You are all in my Daily Prayers.
God Bless you
