Archbishop's Prayer

The Archbishop of York's prayer for our nation and Parliament:

God of eternal love and power,

Save our Parliamentary Democracy;

protect our High Court of Parliament and all its members

from partiality and prejudice, that they may

walk the path of kindness, justice and mercy.

Give them wisdom, insight and a concern for the common good.  

The weight of their calling is too much to bear in their own strength.

Therefore we pray earnestly, Father,

send them help from your Holy Place,

and be their tower of strength.

Lord, graciously hear us.   Amen.
