Two helpful Brexit prayers as used at today’s lunchtime service
God of reconciling hope,
as you guided your people in the past
guide us through the turmoil of the present time
and bring us to that place of flourishing
where our unity can be restored,
the common good served
and all shall be made well.
In the name of Jesus we pray.
Adrian Nunn Southwark Cathedral
“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.”
