6th May 2010. Today is the World Day of Prayer which also happens to be the day we went to the polls in this country. Thought by many to be the most crucial Election of all times. Certainly I have never known such media coverage nor such a sense of the church coming together in prayer to pray for our parliament and fast and interceed for a Godly out come.
My own church has been getting together to fast and pray and last evening had an amazing time in the Spirit during a time of praise and worship as we acknowledged the soverienty of God. How thankful I am to know that God is still in control and still on the throne no matter what the outcome and that we do not have to depend on anyone or anything but Him for our security. As darkness covers the earth so His light will shine brighter until the time when His light will totally swallow up the darkness. So thankful that we can stand in that. Our prayers go out to see Godly men and women in Parliament.
I was also thankful today to have my daughter Janie back in the country after a business trip to California. As the ash cloud started to move again and some westerly airports were closed in the country I so hoped that she would not be stranded as my son was recently in Spain, as although little Oliver and Rebekah were being looked after well by Daddy, they were looking forward to seeing Mummy again.
Something visual to finish - St. Clements, a church in my Borough that featured in the film "Four Weddings and a Funeral". This church is by the River Thames and here we were visiting it whilst out on a Ramble. In past centuries this church was a stopping off post for pilgrims on their way to Canterbury.
