General Election

General Election Prayer

 

The Church of England has released the following prayer ahead of the General Election:

 

Lord, we give thanks for the privileges and responsibilities of living in a 

democratic society.

Give us wisdom to play our part at election time, that, through the exercise 

of each vote, your Kingdom may come closer.

Protect us from the sins of despair and cynicism, guard us against the idols of false utopias and strengthen us to make politics a noble calling that serves 

the common good of all.

We ask this in the name of Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Amen.
