Peter Adam’s Praise, Thanks, and Prayer Letter

May-June 2024

[Sorry this is late!]

Praise and thanks

When we wander away from God, or drift away from him, or turn away from him, we take many small steps in doing so [and perhaps some big steps as well]. But however many steps we take away from God, and no matter over what length of time we have taken, it only takes one step to return: ‘Forgive me, for I have sinned against you’. God holds us and embraces us in his love, compassion, understanding and forgiveness in Christ. Praise him and thank him!


Please join me in my daily prayers for myself:

  • You have blessed and enriched me: help me to bless and enrich others freely and generously.
  • Help me to stand in your grace, live in your love, trust in your truth, grow in your wisdom, walk in your ways, and serve in your strength, in the name of the Lord Jesus, and for your glory.
  • By your glorious and powerful strength, give me patient endurance in everything, and joyful thanks to you for the Lord Jesus [based on Col 1:11-14]
  • May this day be my best day of trusting, honouring, loving, serving you.

Please join me in praying for my ministry over the next two months.
