Compassion and reconciliation

Phil 4:20

To our God and Father be glory for ever and ever.AMEN

Our God and our Father,
as we approach this General Election
many people are seeking for themselves
the power and the glory
seducing us by media profiles
spinning figures to suit their policies
making promises beyond delivery.

We pray that those who seek power
may be saved from their own rhetoric
and given servant hearts
to do justly
to love mercy
and to walk humbly with God.

We pray for those who feel powerless,
locked into cycles of poverty.
Where the system crushes them,
break the modern yokes of slavery.
Where destructive habits dog them 
release them from the lies that bind them.

Father, may our nation turn again to You
and bear the Cross of compassion and reconciliation
that will give glory to our God and Father 
for ever and ever. AMEN
