A prayer for our members of Parliament

A prayer for our members of Parliament

On Sunday 1st December at my home church of newLife I will have the privilege of praying alongside our two local Members of Parliament. This is what I pray. I believe it can be so. Do you?

Father God we stand together alongside Nic Dakin and Andrew Percy.
Yet in many ways they stand apart from us; as representatives of tens of thousands of people.
They determine what is and what is not law.
They deliberate what this nation should stand for.
They deal with matters weighty and lofty.
We believe you have allowed them to hold this responsibility and privilege.
And we believe you long to help them.
So together we ask for them; wisdom, insightfulness and a sense of righteousness.
We ask for tenacity and a boldness to pursue what is good and right.
We ask that you will help them act justly, love mercy and walk humbly.
This we ask in the name of Jesus Christ.
The Lord and Saviour of mankind.
