Prayers for our Government

Today's prayer meeting at St Paul's as part of the wave of prayer 'Thy Kingdom Come' focussed on praying for our Government and for those in positions of leadership. This lunch time a group of us met. During our time we prayed for our MP Sir Edward Garnier. This afternoon I wrote to him to let him know we had prayed for him. Here is something of what I said...

A group from St Pauls met this lunch time and we prayed for you. We prayed for wisdom in the many decisions you have to make. We prayed for the ability to prioritise your workload and to know which cases to take on. We prayed for integrity in your dealings with people. We prayed for your journeying and for your home and family life. We prayed for you as you represent this constituency. We prayed for you in the many committees you are part of and in all the responsibilities you carry.

I also thanked him for his work. I was delighted to receive a reply this afternoon thanking us for the prayers we offered on his behalf.

"First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all who are in high positions, so that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and dignity..." 1 Timothy 2.1-2
