International Day of Prayer – Part Two.
A number of you came back following the first part of the International Day of Prayer, saying how much you had appreciated the comments made by the CC of Gwent, Pam Kelly.
A few more comments below from others who took part.
- If I try to grow without Him, I fail.
- Always be prepared to give an answer.
- What is the reason for my hope?
We prayed for all First Responders around the world. We were asked to be in Prayer for those on their own as Christians – without the support of a Christian Association.
Finally, to always be aware of families who allow their Family Member to go out on duty and await their safe return.
I have attended a number of Commendation Evenings in Surrey Police over many years. When the now Deputy Commissioner of the Met, Dame Lynne Owens was with us as our CC in Surrey; it was always a number one statement from her – to thank the families very sincerely for the person who “Left to care for others”.
“I urge, then, that prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made forall those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour”.
1Tim 2. 1-3.
Together in Christ.
