This is a quick, yet passionate post asking you to take a few minutes to pray for our estate. You may or may not have caught the news headlines that there has been a horrific murder up here today – a woman’s body was found on wasteland in a roll of carpet. You can watch the BBC’s coverage of the incident here.
By God’s grace, we don’t have many incidents like this, so naturally, the whole community is shocked by what has just occured and many are no doubt fearful. Please pray for this community that it will know God’s peace and protection. Please also pray for Hill City Church in the midst of all this. We have several families who live in and around the street where this murder has taken place, and we meet to worship each Sunday just around the corner from there. Each Sunday we get loads of kids from the area popping in and they will obviously want to talk about this. Please pray for wisdom and sensitivity for us as we seek to offer grace and hope in response to what’s just happened.
Ultimately, please pray that God’s Kingdom would come and God’s will be done up here.
Thanks and God bless you.
