Dear Father God,
Thank You for Your providence and goodness to St Hilda’s and providing her with shepherds under the Great Shepherd, our Lord Jesus Christ.
Help us to examine ourselves through this shaking up of the body of Christ in these times. Help us to fix our eyes on Jesus Christ, our Lord, that we may continue to run with endurance the race You have set before us. Father, many in the congregation are aging. We thank You for Your faithful care over our elders.
We pray You renew us with younger leaders to take Your church forward. Raise up men and women who are after your own heart that indeed St Hilda’s will shine out as a beacon of faith, hope and love in the community.
Fill our pastors and our leaders with your anointing and gentle wisdom to lead Your people in St Hilda’s that we may grow as one body, mature in the Lord and measuring up to the fullness of Christ.
Help us not to be hindered by the many distractions of the world and the cares of life, but to be steadfast in our faith, loyal and obedient to You alone as we seek Your kingdom and righteousness.
Finally, thank You, Father, for surrounding St Hilda’s with Your protection during the Covid-19 health crisis. Continue to shield us and overshadow us, we pray. In Jesus’ name. Amen

Failure Is Not The End

I am sure failure in what we have done and our relationships have always got us down. No two ways about it. We would have been disappointed. We would have been angered. We would have been exasperated. We would have been depressed. We would have felt let down by people who we thought could be trusted and we loved. Sometimes, we would have felt like giving up. But, looking back, and mostly after having “fought” back or got back on our feet when we could, we would have always got up wiser and stronger. By the grace of God.
We will always be in broken situations. No two ways about it. But I have also come to learn that the Spirit in us is what will revive and re-energise us. If we call on It with all our heart! Praise God that He is always here for us. He is the potter. We are His clay. He is continuously forming us. We should be grateful we are always in His hands. In His hands! How wonderful that is! How marvellous!

A Walk by the Sea in East Coast with the Lord
19 Jul 2020
I walked East Coast Park at evening time
The sea, the clouds, the trees and grass so pretty
I talked to them and their Creator replied
What joy I felt He made them mine
Slowly the sun sank into brooding sea
Twilight quickly diminished the gold to gloom
The trees lost their shape, the grass a dark mass
Ships at sea became pin pricks of light bobbing free
Mine old eyes make things so much darker; aging palls
Dismay descended upon me with the enveloping dusk
Then came the refrain
All people are like grass and all their glory like flowers of the field
The grass withers and the flowers fall
But the word of the Lord endures forever
For this is the word preached to us
For you have been born again, not of corruptible seed, but incorruptible
Through the word of God which lives and abides forever
