Quilt:     First Quilt

Quilt Recipient:     Sister NJK

The prayer for this quilt is not for my sister, but for all of those in her vocation.  She recently retired from the Canadian federal police force, the RCMP.  When she was posted to her first jurisdiction, she began to collect pigs, a somewhat derogatory term for those in law enforcement.  My first quilted project was a table runner for her dinning room in her favourite colours; white, black and red.  You can see the result at the above link.

Lord Protector, keep those called to keep us safe and to enforce the laws of the land under your gracious protection.  Guide them in paths of righteousness, help them to resist the temptations that come with power, may your love show them the way to maintain their relationships with spouses, children and family, save them from the frustration that they are not making a difference. Finally, God of abundant grace and justice, deliver them from the travails of substance abuse and may they know the peace of Christ in the face of cruelty, disaster, oppression and all the sins of humanity against your commandments.

Luke 4:9-11     Then the he took him to Jerusalem, and placed him on the pinnacle of the temple, saying to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here, 10 for it is written,

‘He will command his angels concerning you, to protect you,’

11 and

‘On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone.’”
