Prayer Letter from Alice


Hello Everyone,

I meet weekly with CPA Members in both Surrey and Sussex to share and Pray with each other.

A few weeks ago, we were together in Surrey and one of those attending began to share such encouraging; warming words with us. I realised that it was based on the 23rd Psalm. There is a translation of various parts of the Bible called “The Passion Translation”. Here below for you to read and be comforted by, is the 23rd Psalm.

Yahweh is my best friend and my shepherd, I always have more than enough.
He offers a resting place for me in his luxurious love,
His tracks take me to an oasis of peace near the quiet brook of bliss.
That’s where he restores and revives my life.
He opens before me the right path and leads me along in his footsteps of righteousness
so that I can bring honour to his name.
Even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness,
fear will never conquer me, for you already have!
Your authority is my strength and my peace.
The comfort of your love takes away my fear.
I’ll never be lonely, for you are near.
You become my delicious feast even when my enemies dare to fight.
You anoint me with the fragrance of your Holy Spirit;
you give me all I can drink of you until my cup overflows.
So why would I fear the future?
Only goodness and tender love pursue me all the days of my life.
Then afterward, when my life is through, I’ll return to your glorious presence to be forever with you!
