Continuing to Pray
The EU Referendum took place on Thursday 23rd June 2016. Many of us were be able to take part in this important Vote. Should we stay or should we leave? Several hundred local residents were able to use our building to vote in the Referendum.
We are keeping this page on this site for a while as we need to continue to pray a great deal for our country. Pray for God to give our politicians wisdom as they work through all the implications of this decision. Pray for political stability, and for the UK to be blessed and be a blessing to other nations (Gen.12:2).
In the light of the dramatic events on Friday 24th June, with the UK voting to leave the EU and David Cameron stepping down as Prime Minister, it’s important to remember that God has a spiritual purpose for the United Kingdom and Europe. It’s time to pray for our political leaders to get up and go forward graciously, doing the job they were chosen to do, and for God to give us His peace and stability. We can declare that Jesus is Lord over the decision to leave, and ask for God's guidance for all leaders. Pray for much wisdom for our Parliament and Government as they respond to the result; for reconciliation for those on opposing sides of the debate; and for relationships not to be damaged. Pray for our leaders in government, banking and commerce to unite for national economic and political stability both in the short term and long term. Pray also that we will value the contribution that each of us has to make in the public square, and for a greater recognition of the hard work that our public servants do in a difficult and challenging role.
One of our number wrote a Background Paper. This was put on our site in early June 2016. You can read it here.
There were several good articles on the EU and the Referendum in the May/June 2016 issue of Idea Magazine from The Evangelical Alliance. You can download a pdf of that issue from here.
A collective of national denominations (Baptist, CofS, Methodist and URC) got together to bring some digital resources to our attention. Called Think, Pray, Vote their material was very helpful. Have a look at it here.
An interesting article in the Christian Today magazine appeared here.
