British EU Referendum – A prayer for reconciliation.

The Church of England has circulated this prayer for reconciliation after the EU Referendum:

“Eternal God, Light of the nations,

in Christ you make all things new:

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.”

On the website of the  Diocese in Europe, of which our church is a part, there are a number of responses from our Bishops, Robert and David, and from the Archbishops in England which you may find worth reading:
