 The Visitation Senior Parishioners Fellowship (VSPF) of the Church of the Visitation Seremban came together for a meeting and fellowship cum potluck on the 8th of October, 2017. Held at the church’s cafeteria, the heavy downpour did not dampened their spirits. About 25 parishioners turned up for the 5.00 pm meeting which also included singing sessions. Mr. Mariadass, the Chairperson welcomed all and delivered his speech. Some members also came forward to present a short report on the various activities that VSPF undertook from October 2016 to September 2017.

O Lord my God - You have been my strength and my stay throughout my life and You alone are righteous and good – gracious and long-suffering towards the children of men. Keep me Lord under the protection of Your love and listen to my cry, for You alone are my strength and my stay – You alone have the words of eternal life.

You have protected my life from destruction and brought me into Your overflowing banqueting hall and Your banner over me is love. I will praise Your name as long as I live for You have been my strong Defender, my Shield and Buckler and the Rock of my salvation - and I love You Lord.

Let me proclaim the glories of Your name as long as I live – all day long let me proclaim Your loving-kindness and tender mercies, which are new every morning… for You are my Saviour and Redeemer and great is Your faithfulness. You have been with me through my youth and I proved that You will never leave me nor forsake me - and now that I am old and feeble my hope and trust remains in You. Protect me from those that would seek my life to harm me and keep me under the shadow of Your wing, regard me as the apple of Your eye.

O Lord, in You alone I put my hope and I will praise You more and more with each passing day. I will tell of Your goodness and grace to my children and grandchildren – so that for generations to come Your name will be lifted up so – and may the voices of my offspring sing praise the glory of Your name.

My life is in Your hands and the joy of the Lord has been my strength throughout all the days of my life - My hope is in the Lord my God - My trust is built on nothing less that Jesus Christ and His righteousness – praise Your glorious name for ever and ever. Amen.
