Thank you for your comeback following last week’s Prayer Letter. Whilst visiting a Team in HQ’s this week one of our Surrey Officers came to me and said “The Prayer Letter always seems to hit the spot”. So good to hear and encouraging.
During the last five weeks in Surrey, five people have died, serving and recently retired Members of the Police Family. Our Force Chaplain wrote this, this morning “This is unprecedented and I am lost for words”. Prayers please for the whole of the Force, Family Members and Colleagues of those who have died.
Last Saturday I attended the Memorial Service held at Surrey Head Quarters. I had the privilege of playing for the Service. At the end of that period of time we left the building and walked out into the Memorial Garden. It was pouring with rain. As we stood in memory of those who had left us over many years and in the last few weeks; in a minute’s silence; I closed my eyes. In the distance I heard a horn of a train going through Guildford, a dog barking, probably one in our training school, and from time to time the roar of traffic as vehicles moved through the town in the distance. I was also aware of the rain quietly pattering down on my umbrella from the trees above us.
I realised in that moment my experience portrayed a picture of Police life. Out there I could hear the world amongst which our Officers are at work, but I also knew the Blessings coming down from the Lord as I heard the rain.
I am reminded of the Hymn, “How great Thou art”. No matter where we are or what we see, we can always sing “Then sings my soul, my Saviour God to Thee, how great Thou art, how great Thou art”.
I Pray in all that is going on in your lives during this coming week you will be able to sing to your Saviour, “How great Thou art”.
