Prayers for Parliament and the Nation: Friday, 05 January 2018

" I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people – 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. "

- 1 Timothy 2:1-4

  • Schools should play a bigger role in preparing children for social media's emotional demands as they move from primary to secondary school, England's children's commissioner says. A report into the effects of social media on eight to 12-year-olds claimed many children were over-dependent on "likes" and comments for social validation.

  • Theresa May is reported to be planning some changes to her cabinet. However, she is set to resist calls for a reshuffle of her top team and focus instead on rewarding up and coming MPs with junior ministerial jobs.

  • Cadbury has reversed a controversial decision taken in 2016 to remove the word ‘Easter’ from the name of its annual egg hunt for children. This year’s event, in partnership with the National Trust, has been advertised as the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt.
