Thought for the month of February
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
1 Timothy 2:1-2
It’s an uncertain time politically for our nation. Brexit and the tensions in Parliament have dominated our headlines for weeks. As Christians, whatever our opinions may be, we are called to pray for our government.
Let us pray – alone, or with our church community. Let’s join together and invite the Lord to steer us through these uncertain times…
“In this time of turmoil…
We pray for the Prime Minister and Party Leaders as they negotiate the political future of our nation:
Father, give them your wisdom and vision.
We pray for all in Parliament as they represent their communities:
Jesus, give them your humility and strength.
We pray for the media as they interpret events for the nation:
Holy Spirit, give them your truth and compassion.
We pray for ourselves, your Church, as we show your love to our neighbours:
Would we speak hope, embody courage and model unity in diversity.
Almighty God, we place our trust in you:
For yours is the kingdom the power and the glory, now and forever, Amen.”
