Prayer4UKToday 28th Sep 2018

Our Father in heaven Hallowed be Your Name Y@HOVAH SHALOM LORD our Peace Judges 6:23-24 Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done. On earth as it is in Heaven.

100 days of Prayer

Day 55

Jesus said, ‘My kingdom is not of this world. John 18:33-38 (NIV)

WHOSE KINGDOM?

Pilate, as an agent of Rome, has, in his hands, the ultimate sanction of any human authority - the power over life and death. Earthly kingdoms, ultimately, rely on their ability to inflict suffering and death in order to prevail. The Kingdom of Heaven, that Jesus inaugurates, overcomes death and ushers in a new age where suffering and death are no more. I have recently started working at Faslane, where the ability of the British Government to inflict suffering and death has its ultimate and most terrible expression. Whilst I work out my views on the nuclear deterrent with fresh urgency, I minister to the people here, and I pray for the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns in all his glory.

PRAYER
 Lord Jesus, we look forward to your return in glory with keen anticipation, but in this current age, we pray wisdom and grace for those who hold the reins of power. May they recognise you as the source of all authority and seek to govern in Truth and in Love. Amen
