I have received a number of responses to last week’s PL, with reference to the problems at Beachy Head and also the pleasure received from hearing the story of the Toddler singing “Happy Day”. Thank You.
- With the concern shown by yourselves in the happenings at Beachy Head, I would again ask that together we Pray for this situation. Firstly, those in distress and feel the need to end their lives and then people such as Police/Chaplains/Relatives and Members of the Public who deal with the aftermath.
- Prayer please for Family/Colleagues and Friends of John Stafford, an Officer from Staines, attending his Funeral; led by our Surrey Police Chaplain Patrick Samuels, taking place on Monday 9th July at Guildford Cathedral.
Following on from the Toddler last week and Father’s Day the week before; this week I want to relate another happening, still on the subject of God being our Heavenly Father.
I had a chat with a friend this week. He explained to me that his Daughter had phoned him in distress. She is a Mum of two children and recently Dad walked away from the family. She told her Dad in tears that a family pet belonging to the children had died. “Dad how am I going to tell the children, how am I going to deal with this?” Up until a few weeks before, the Children’s Dad would have been there to support and take responsibility. But not so now.
Her Dad went to her home immediately and discussions took place and plans were put in action.
As my friend related that story to me. I was again reminded of our relationship with our Heavenly Father. No matter what is happening around us, friends let us down, relationships are in jeopardy, Our Heavenly Father is waiting to hear from us and is immediately available.
“Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matt 11 28-30.
My Prayer for you this week in the enormity of your work and whilst with your family; is that you will know that rest that Your Heavenly Father wishes to share with you.
