Norfolk prayer group issues UK prayer
The director of Norfolk group Call to Prayer, Jill Gower, has prepared a blessing prayer to speak over the nation as a response to the negativity following the EU referendum. It is available here to download.
“Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith.” Hebrews 12:2
Jill said, "There is so much negativity right now following the EU Referendum, and as the people of God surely we should know that the Lord is sovereign over all that is going on."
"I felt led to prepare a blessing prayer to speak over the nation at this time. It doesn’t matter which way you voted, what matters is that we look to Jesus and declare His Lordship."
Jill is encouraging people to use it in their prayer times, or in prayer groups.
