The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have issued a statement supporting Churches Together in Britain and Ireland call to prayer:

"We echo the call of Churches Together in Britain and Ireland to Christians and all those of faith and goodwill to give time for prayer beginning this Sunday in their local churches or as they choose: praying for wisdom, courage, integrity and compassion for our political leaders and all MPs; for reconciliation; and for fresh and uniting vision for all in our country."

Archbishops Justin Welby and John Sentamu

Hear the Archbishop of York speaking a prayer which he is encouraging everyone to pray 3 times a day at 6.00am, 12.00 noon and 6.00pm. It reads:

God of eternal love and power,
Save our Parliamentary Democracy;
Protect the High Court of Parliament and all its members
From partiality and prejudice;
That they may walk humbly 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.

The Archbishop has also written a prayer for the European Union to add to your prayer schedule.

God of all Hopefulness,
Upholding and Renewing your Creation:
Give your Grace abundantly to our European Union Leaders, that they may
Lead with Wisdom and Insight
With a Willingness to Lead and be Led

In your mercy cast out, in us, all fear,
godlessness, sin and love of money;
and help us to live Truth, Justice
Peace, Compassion and Joy
To the Glory of your Name

Please add these to your prayers:

Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.

Our Father who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive them that trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
