The Archbishop of York John Sentamu has written a special prayer saying: “At this time of uncertainty I have been asked by many people to call for prayer. Please may I encourage you to join me in this Prayer Vigil as we work for peace and unity at this time.”
The Archbishop’s prayer reads:
God of eternal love and power,
Save our Parliamentary Democracy;
Protect our High Court of Parliament and all its members
From partiality and prejudice;
That they may walk the path of kindness, justice and mercy.
Give them wisdom, insight and a concern for the common good.
The weight of their calling is too much to bear in their own strength,
Therefore we pray earnestly, Father,
send them help from your Holy Place,
and be their tower of strength.
Lord, graciously hear us.
