General Election July 4th 2024

Ahead of The General Election the Church of England has launched an initiative to help us prepare prayerfully. You can find more information and sign up to daily reflections here. Pray Your Part- General Election 2024 | The Church of England


Here at St James' Church we will also be using the new Church Society Collect inspired by 1 Timothy 2, an American prayer from the last century, and the recent Coronation.


Almighty God,


to whom each of us must give an account for all our powers and privileges:


Guide the people of the United Kingdom in the election of their members of Parliament;


that by wise laws and just administration,


peace may be fostered,


godliness encouraged,


and the true profession of the gospel enabled,


for the sake of Jesus our saviour and King,


to the glory of your holy name,


Amen.



1 Timothy 2: I urge then, first of all, that requests, prayers and intercession and thanks-giving be made for everyone - for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Saviour who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.“
