A special prayer for the UK at this time

Eternal God, Light of the nations,
in Christ you make all things new:
guide our nation in the coming days through the inspiration of your Spirit,
that understanding may put an end to discord and all bitterness.
Give us grace to rebuild bonds of trust
that together we may work for the dignity and flourishing of all;
through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Wednesday, Psalms 23, 25; Revelation 7.1-4, 9-endQuestions on Revelation:
·       Again, the numbers here provide a symbolic picture of fulfilment. 144,000 = 12 x 12 x 1000 – the complete number from offspring of Israel – a great multitude; followed by people from all nations – the spiritual sons and daughters – the church. How did all these people come to be gathered around the throne (v 14)?
·       Being part of God’s people has meant has meant sacrifice throughout the ages. Pray especially today for those in persecuted churches – for hope, endurance and deeper joy.
What verse speaks to you today? Repeat it and allow the Holy Spirit to speak through it.
