A PRAYER BEFORE BRITAIN’S EU REFERENDUM
Ahead of the crucial referendum for Europe as we know it today, Jean Mertzanakis and Father Malcolm share the prayer from the Diocesan Bishop.
The referendum on Britain’s continuing membership of the European Union is on Thursday 23rd June. Bishop Robert and others within the Diocese have been keeping up contributions to a blog dedicated to the topic at http://www.reimaginingeurope.co.uk/
The Church of England has circulated this prayer for the EU referendum campaign:
“God of truth, give us grace to debate the issues in this referendum with honesty and openness. Give generosity to those who seek to form opinion and discernment to those who vote, that our nation may prosper and that with all the peoples of Europe we may work for peace and the common good; for the sake of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.”
