Resources for Your Church 

General Election 2017


It’s both encouraging and reassuring to know that Churches around the country will be taking time in their main services and small group meetings over the next month to pray specifically for the General Election.

We have collated three simple resources and pray they will be helpful to you and your church during this election season.

Hymn

We Seek Your Kingdom’, (sung to the tune of ‘Abide with Me’) was commissioned in 2016 as part of the Cinnamon Network’s promotion of civic prayer events.  In the form of a prayer, it is a cry to the Lord for Him to ‘transform, revive and heal society’.

Prayer

‘God of All Government’, takes the cry of the hymn one step further and prays for workers for ‘the harvest field of political life’ but whose ‘primary allegiance is to another King’

Video

This short video (2 minutes), brings the focus of these prayers back to us as individuals, causing us to reflect on how we can use our experience of local community action to serve the interests of wider society - even after the election is done and dusted.

The resources can all be downloaded from the links below:
