A Biblical Prayer for the Government

God calls us to pray for those in authority and as the Brexit debate continues to rage in our Nation, it is surely time to do that in a Biblical way, without taking any particular position on process, assuming a specific outcome, or speaking against individuals involved.

We recently posted about the National Call to Prayer on Sunday 9th December  – click here for more details – and on the website of the Church that has initiated it is this prayer, around which we can surely all unite and pray together:

A BIBLICAL PRAYER FOR THE GOVERNMENT

  1. Dear Friends

    This is a good prayer – we’ll use it on Saturday when we’re holding an open afternoon of Word, song, prayer & praise for the nation

    Malachi 3 came to me this morning – who can stand in the day of His Coming?? May the wholesome Fear of the Lord once again become the foundation for the United Kingdom!!
