After the Brexit vote - pray for our nation

Following the Brexit vote yesterday, we continue to pray for the outcome of the political discussions at Westminster. 

The cathedral is open if you want to come in and pray, or light a candle. Alternatively join us at our regular services; the lunchtime Eucharist (12.30 pm) and Choral Evensong (5.15 pm).  All are welcome. 

God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.
(1 Corinthians 1.25)

Prayer by the Dean of Southwark 

God of wisdom and strength,
who challenges us in our foolishness,
and supports us in our weakness;
give to those who lead us
a desire for that which is best,
a commitment to that which is honourable,
a love for that which is true
and a passion to serve the common good.
In Jesus’ name.

Collect for this week:

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who dost govern all things in heaven and earth;

Mercifully hear the supplications of thy people, and grant us thy peace all the days of our life;

through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
