When I sat to type the Prayer Letter last week, I had nothing to say. I felt totally empty. I knew the Bible Slot was to be the writings on Esther 4.14. But how to start……. And then I found myself writing the following-
“And so, the weeks go by.
The only thing right now that I can trust in; is My Heavenly Father, His Son Jesus Christ and the Gift of the Holy Spirit”.
In hindsight I realised that that had come from singing a Chorus a few days before, based on the Creed. This took place during a daily Zoom Prayer Meeting with our Church. I was empty, but my spirit was full of truth.
Having sent the Prayer Letter out to the three Forces as usual, a particular person came to mind outside these three Forces. I knew I had to send it to that Officer. I knew he was far from well.
Having received it; he immediately placed the introduction above, on Twitter. He received many likes and even someone wrote saying that they had no belief in God, but felt that at that moment those words were powerful and he would appreciate Prayer.
Here is the Creed, on which my introduction above was based.
I believe in God, the Father almighty, creator of heaven and earth.
I believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, died, and was buried;
He descended to the dead.
On the third day he rose again; he ascended into heaven,
He is seated at the right hand of the Father,
And he will come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy catholic Church, the communion of saints,
The forgiveness of sins, the resurrection of the body,
And the life everlasting.
In these days, where life is so difficult, only God remains the same.
