The Reverend is away this week.
Instead, we’ve published below a prayer for democracy – for those who find it difficult to count.
Have an excellent Sunday.
Remember the sun cream.
A Prayer for Democracy
Heavenly Father, we give thanks for the democracy alive in our country and for the freedom to worship You. Help the elected government and all in positions of power and authority to govern wisely and for the common good of all. Help those who are short of votes and in opposition to recognise that humility and respect for democracy are characteristics which make Britain a beacon for stability and prosperity around the world – characteristics which should be upheld, as they were fought for by our ancestors who sacrificed so much for the freedoms we too often take for granted today.
