Sannox Prayer News – June
“Well done, good and faithful servant” [Matt 25:21]
Last month we wrote about God’s faithfulness, and the faithfulness (and faith!) of all involved in the Sannox project since its beginnings.
Having watched on Thursday the excellent Trooping of the Colour, the Mall thronged with thousands of folk and the powerful tribute flypast over Buckingham Palace at the start of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, I was reminded strongly once again about faith and faithfulness – this time the faith and faithfulness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11.
Politicians and Prime Ministers come and go, and many have not been the best role models, but despite the challenges she has faced – personal, national and international – our Queen has been, amongst many other things, a role model of faith and faithfulness. So we give thanks for her service to God, to this nation and the Commonwealth, and we pray a blessing over her today – for health and happiness in her remaining years.
We also pray a blessing over you, the faithful Friends of Sannox, over every aspect of your lives, as we look forward to sharing together in the next chapters of the Sannox story as Father God releases the resources – people, skills, materials, finances – He knows we need to fulfil the vision and complete the project He has given us.
Lord we give You thanks for…
Please pray for….

The Sannox Prayer
“Today I choose to stand in this place you have called me to,
