Last week I had the great privilege of being part of the International Day of Prayer for the Emergency Services. I spent an hour on Zoom with others from many parts of the UK, Germany, Italy, Nigeria and Nepal.
I had to smile. Our links over the Internet were excellent throughout, except when the President of the CPA – CC Pam Kelly, spoke from my village, now a Town in Gwent in South Wales, where I was born!
CC Pam Kelly referred to the Police as being the First Responders in most Emergencies. She thanked each and every one of you. When Leaders, the CC went on to say, are finding it difficult; due to pressure of work to pass on praise for work being done, “We the Christians in and amongst our Teams are there as a light to encourage”.
“Light” was referred to a number of times and as Christians to be encouraged to bring His Light, that is in you; to support others around you in the darkness.
I am reminded of the following – 1Tim 2. 1-3
I urge then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and All those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all Godliness and Holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour
May you be there this coming week to Pray for yourselves, each other and those who do not know you and to bring light and encouragement.
In His Grip
