In the aftermath of Britain’s vote to exit from the European Union, churches across the UK are joining together to pray for the guidance and peace of the nation. Churches who take part are being invited to use a prayer issued by the Church of England, designed to bring unity to Britain.
The prayer reads in part: ‘Guide our nation in the coming days through the inspiration of Your Spirit, that understanding may put an end to discord and all bitterness. Give us grace to rebuild bonds of trust that together we may work for the dignity and flourishing of all, through Jesus Christ our Lord.’
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, issued a joint statement saying: ‘We must remain hospitable and compassionate, builders of bridges
and not barriers. Whatever our views during the referendum campaign, we must now unite in a common task to build a generous and forward looking country.’
