How to pray during the election campaign

November 5, 2019

Do you ever pray for politics and politicians? Is it even right to pray that the candidate or party of your choice wins? We know that the Bible encourages us to pray at all times and for all situations, but just where do we begin?

Fortunately, St Michael & St Barnabas is a member church of the EA (Evangelical Alliance). EA have produced a prayer diary for the election campaign.

Each Thursday we offer a new prayer for the General Election. We would love for you to join with us in coming before God our Father to ask for His peace, grace and guidance during a difficult time for our country.

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

With a General Election announced and agreed for Thursday, 12 December, the next six weeks will be filled with campaigning, announcements and rolling news coverage. We are committed to encouraging Christians to engage in the election, and that engagement should start with prayer.

This week’s prayer (Thursday, 31st October)

God, our Saviour and our King, we know you hold the universe in your hands and are sovereign over all. We thank you for your grace and mercy in our lives and in our world.

We give thanks that you are not troubled by the things that trouble us, and we place our trust in you as our King of kings. Lord, let us place our faith fully in you and not in political systems and processes. We pray for your will to be done and your kingdom to come.

“I lift my eyes to the mountains –
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.”

Psalm 121:1-2

Jesus is …

October 31, 2019

Jeremiah’s words were written at a time when many of the people of God had turned away from the Lord and worshipping idols. The Lord wants to remind his faithful people it is worth persevering because even when the world seems dark His light still shines and His purposes stand secure.

Revd Tim.
