So last week the regular email from the Evangelical Alliance included a section from the CEO Gavin Calver who I have met on several occasions. His comment includes a link to Danny Webster who I have also met on many occasions and indeed this reference to the speech by Les Isaac was very positive because his speech a couple of days before Johnsons resigned was called by at least one Minister as the reason why he as the Minister resigned and that and another resignation led to Johnson to resign. I have met Les on one occasion in Crawley when we were all involved in discussing Street Pastors with a senior Police Officer who was the West Sussex Divisional Commander. Indeed he is now a Priest in the Church of England having retired from the Police. The reason for the meeting was that he wanted to include Street Pastors across West Sussex. I was coordinating the Brighton and Hove Street Pastors at that time. The following comment came from Gavin with the link to the piece from Danny. Although the call for Prayer for the Government Leadership was published last week, I am certain that we need to continue to pray for this coming week which begins today.
Please join me in praying this week as the leadership race for the role of prime minister continues. It’s an important time for the UK, and I’m pleased that our director of advocacy Danny Webster has written this article to explain how it impacts our public policy work. Following government resignations last week and the link with Rev Les Isaac’s sermon at the Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast, Danny explores: the importance of integrity in public life; our hopes for seven key policy areas; and prayer points. We hope this helps you to pray as things unfold.
