Norfolk service on national Police prayer day  

CPAPolicePrayer450A national day to pray for the Police has been set aside on May 14 and Norfolk Christian Police Association branch secretary, Sergeant Marie Reavey, explains how to get involved across the county.

Norfolk CPA aims to promote and foster the fellowship of Christians in the Police Service in the unity enjoyed by those born again by the Spirit of God.  We try to demonstrate this relationship with God in a concern for righteousness both on and off duty and we obey Christ in proclaiming His gospel, especially to members of the Police Service, that they might be brought to know Him personally

We need everyone’s help to raise the profile of the Association. Our mission and purpose is to glorify Jesus Christ and to encourage and support Christians in the Police Service by communicating in words and action, the truth, message and hope of the gospel.  We also aim to build bridges between the Police and the local Christian Community

The National Day of Prayer for Police will take place on May 14.  A prayer meeting has been arranged to take place at Newtown Methodist Church, Caister Road, Great Yarmouth at 4.30pm on the day, all are welcome

If you or your church would like to support us but are unable to make the planned event, some prayer points have been provided to guide you

There is a one-hour prayer guide available on the website www.cpauk.net along with information on other ways you can get involved with supporting your local police

  • Town Pastors to be set up in Thetford, King’s Lynn and Great Yarmouth
  • Dereham Town Pastors and Norwich Street Partnership would know God’s favour and Police would develop strong relationships with them
  • Officers would recognise the power of prayer and be happy to request prayer 


  • Reduced stress levels
  • Work/home life balance
  • Protection from sickness


  • Unity within National CPA. Every force would wish to be part of CPA
  • Christians within the police would feel called to stand up and be counted for Jesus in the work place
  • Protection of faith for officers.  I’ve seen two friends lose their faith in the last few months. 
  • God would raise people up to be inspirational leaders of CPA branches across the country.
  • Every region to have a regional co-ordinator
  • That Christian officers would see their workplace as a mission field and not just a place of work, that they would know God has called them to shine for Him where they are stationed
  • National CPA would make wise, Godly decisions to move CPA forward
  • The Church and Police would work together to tackle problems
