Prayer for the week

This week’s poem is chosen from the Church of England website ( which has a huge library of prayers which you can search for different themes and occasions.

Almighty Father
whose will is to restore all things
in your beloved Son, the King of all:
govern the hearts and minds of those in authority,
and bring the families of the nations, 
divided and torn apart by the ravages of sin,
to be subject to his just and gentle rule; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
