OPERATION DIVINE INTERVENTION'S FIRST SERVICES HELD AT HONEYDEW POLICE STATION

Operation Divine Intervention started reaching out to the members of Honeydew Police Station on 15 May 2007.

Pastor Lucas Potgieter was able to share a few thoughts from Scripture and pray with the members who were about to go on duty for the day shift. Being Child Protection Week, he emphasized the great responsibility the Police have towards the protection of children in their duties. Prayer was then offered for their safety and wisdom in all situations whilst they are on duty.
Similar thoughts and prayer followed with the officers who had returned from doing duty through the night.

Then the staff who serves in the Police Station throughout the day, along with the members of the Detective branch arrived and a slightly longer time was spent with them.

Three young people provided music and led some spirited singing for the whole group. Pastor Lucas then shared a few thoughts on the importance of children in the ministry of Jesus, and challenged those present to have the same passion. After prayer another song was sung, followed by spontaneous singing as we dismissed and went about our daily tasks.

On my way home, I passed a scene where members of the police were attending to a crisis situation. I thanked God that I was able to pray with them for wisdom in that situation just an hour ago, and continued on my way praying for them.

Please join us in this vital ministry of seeking for 'CRIME PREVENTION THROUGH DIVINE INTERVENTION'.
