Thank you for your replies to recent Prayer Letters. It is good to know that they encourage you and for others – you are prompted to ask for Prayer.
When I wrote the last Prayer Letter; I was completing 10 years of enabling us as Christians to be there for each other. A comment I have received, “It is so good to know that I am not the only Christian in the Force”.
I look forward to writing many more Prayer Letters.
I have received the following quote from a recipient of the PL. They have asked that we join them in Prayer for a very difficult situation.
* “Please may I ask for prayers, in your next letter for my daughter, who has suffered domestic abuse for a long time and is now getting help, but abuse can be insidious and abusers do not stop; revenge remains as well. Facing it head on takes real courage when one is already damaged and the help does not provide release, nor appears to be assisting in the everyday issues of children etc. Please may I ask for everyone’s prayers as my daughter has a long journey ahead”.
* Trevor Botting who was with Sussex Police is now Chief of Police in Turks and Caicos Islands. These Islands are in the direct path of Irma; which is due to hit the Islands at Midnight Thursday/Friday 7th/8th September. He knows we are Praying for him and his Colleagues.
Last week I heard from an Inspector that he was preaching in his Church on Sunday. Immediately to my mind came the following – “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in Thy Sight Oh Lord”. Psalm 19.14.
Since then I have been speaking with another Inspector. He was going off duty recently – very late at night from a Custody Centre. There was much activity there, so he chose to stay on to support the Staff. This resulted in him having a most unexpected conversation; initiated by a detainee about The Lord. Again, to me the above verse was so applicable. From the Pulpit to a Cell. We are enabled to be His Children. This truly thrills my spirit.
