Prayer as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union

Our Father in heaven, You are the King above all kings.

We thank You that whatever the circumstances, You remain our refuge and strength, an ever present help.

We pray for those in parliament, our Prime Minister, our government and all our elected officials. We pray that Your guiding hand would powerfully aid parliament as they discuss and plan for the future of the UK. Would they guide our nation into the way of peace.

We also pray for our communities and those around us who are struggling with the divisions in our society and are worried about the future. Help us to be peacemakers and to offer hope to those around us.

In Jesus’ name, Amen.
