We know, Heavenly Father, that at this desperate hour in our world affairs, we need you. We need your strength, your guidance and your wisdom.
There are problems in our world far greater than any wisdom of man can solve. What should our Government do in such an hour?
May your wisdom and your power come upon our Prime Minister, Theresa May, her Ministers and members of her Government, to whom have been entrusted the guardianship of our United Kingdom.
May the responsibility lie heavily upon their hearts, until they are ready to acknowledge their helplessness and turn to you, dear Father for help and guidance.
Give them the honesty, the courage and the moral integrity to confess that they don’t know always what to do. Only then can they lead us as a nation beyond human wisdom to you, who alone has all the answers.
Lead us, creator God, in this high adventure. Remind us that a ‘mighty fortress is our God’ – not a hiding place where we can escape for an easy life, but rather a war room of courage and strength – the mightiest of all, who will march beside us into the battle for righteousness and world brotherhood.
Oh dear Father God, may we never recover from our feeling of helplessness and our need of you!
In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, our Lord, we humbly pray.
With many peaceful blessings
