As the day approaches for the UK to withdraw from the EU on 31st January 2020 and so begin the transition phase, the invitation to followers of Jesus across our UK nations is to continue to call on the name of the Lord for His will, His Kingdom and His perfect purposes and plans for our nations and for our Continent to be outworked.

We invite you to pray with others, or where you are, on 31st January 2020 and pray at:

12 noon using The Lord’s Prayer – personally
11pm. using The Lord’s Prayer – for our UK nations

We believe that God works everything for His good – and so we come humbly and repent for what has gone wrong in the whole process of the last three years and ask for His mercy and His heart to start the process of rebuilding.  (Psalm 127:1) 

We believe we have been entrusted with the ministry of reconciliation - so we ask for a fresh desire to arise within each follower of Jesus to be a messenger of comfort, peace, hope and reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5:18)

We believe that we are asked to pray for those in leadership – so we ask for Boris Johnson and all in the UK governments/assemblies for God’s wisdom and direction especially regarding the transition talks (1 Timothy 2:1-4)

Our Father in heaven hallowed be Your Name

We believe in God the Father almighty creator of heaven and earth

We hallow (honour) Your Holy name over the UK Nations

We hallow (honour) Your Holy name over every European Nation

 

We pray for Your Kingdom to come

In and through the transition period discussions between UK and EU

In and through all trade talks with other nations

 

For Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven

Through our leaders: Boris Johnson and the UK government

Michael Barnier and the EU team

In our relationships with all the Leaders of the European nations  

 

Give us today our daily bread

We pray for reconciliation at every level in our society

We ask for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit on His church

We ask for continued and growing freedom for the Gospel across all of Europe and for continued and growing freedom for the Bible to be read across all the nations

 

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us

Lord, have mercy on us as a UK nation

Lord, have mercy on us as Your church

Lord, have mercy on the EU

Lord, have mercy on every nation in Europe

 

Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil

Bring into the light those with evil intent of division and destruction

We pray for peace on our streets

Bring into the light those whose intent is greed and manipulation

Bless all the work of the peacemakers.

  

For the Kingdom, the power and the glory are Yours now and for ever

We pray that Your name will be glorified

We pray that millions will come to know Jesus as the Way, the Truth and the Life

We bless every nation with the blessing of Your Shalom peace

You are our rock, we look to You, we trust You.

 

Amen.
