Jt Public Issues Team: June 2016
God of every nation and people,
At this historic moment we pray for all who are affected by the decision that we have made.
Whatever differences this has revealed within our own society, may they not eclipse what we have in common.
Where the narratives of political debate have caused harm and division help us to reclaim the true values of our shared humanity.
Where exaggeration and distortion have generated suspicion and fear may truth and honesty restore hope and goodness.
We pray for all the nations of Europe that you will help us to find ways of living and working together to pursue the mercy and justice that you require.
We recommit ourselves — together — to the values of your eternal Kingdom and pray that along with all people we might help your world become more as you intended.
This prayer is from The Joint Public Issues Team of the Baptist, Church of Scotland, Methodist and United Reformed Churches working together to live out the gospel of Christ in church and society.
