And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” 1 Corinthians 13:13

With a General Election announced and agreed for Thursday, 12 December, the next six weeks will be filled with campaigning, announcements and rolling news coverage. We are committed to encouraging Christians to engage in the election, and that engagement should start with prayer. 

Each week we will be posting suggested prayer points to aid us in our intercession in the run up to the General Election. You can also read the whole series here.

Lord, as we look towards Christmas and reflect on the election and results, we pray that we may come together in unity as we remember the birth of Jesus Christ.

We pray that our communities would be bound together in love, and not divided. We pray that those who have not known the love of God will encounter you this season.

"How good and pleasant it is
when God’s people live together in unity!"

Psalm 133:1
