Thank you Simon for stepping in to write last week’s Prayer Letter. To me it was a breath of fresh air. Thank you.
I have now returned from spending special time with my American family who were with me during the last three weeks. Thank you Lord.
Following the last PL I wrote, I received the following-
“I want to thank you for your words of encouragement. There has been a real sense of heaviness and difficulty around this week, but reading your words, I did exactly as suggested, and came and sat at the feet of Jesus. Oh, what a place to sit, wait and be refreshed, to give it all to Him, to know that all things are held by him and through him. He is Sovereign over all. Thank you again for such encouraging words”
This was not the only reply; I was encouraged to hear that a number of you found it helpful to take time out and to “Come”, before the Lord.
- Prayer please as the new Surrey DCC is chosen and appointed.
- Continued Prayer for Helen Collins please.
- Prayer for the Commissioner of the Met, Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe as he prepares to hand over the reins.
- Prayer for the Annual Celebration of Christianity in the Police Service, coming up on 18th October, in Central London.
Recently I have been studying the life of Joseph. What has come across is that every one of us has a destiny, which I believe is God’s Plan. Every day is His and what He has prepared for us to do. There are days when I can say “Well, where was God in that?” a little like the “pit days/prison days” for Joseph. But if these days had not happened, he would never have become the person God had destined for him. So my verse today is Psalm 139. 16.
“All the days ordained for me were written in your book, before one of them came to be”.
God bless you in your daily walk with Him in your calling within your Police Force, in your family life and with friends.
