Prayers for Parliament and the Nation: Friday, 11 May 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

  • Premier Radio’s Novena initiative is an opportunity for Christians to pray with others for the 9 days between Ascension Day and Pentecost. These 9 days of prayer mirror the first followers of Christ, who obeyed Jesus when he told them to pray and wait for his Holy Spirit to empower them.

  • Junk food advertising for “unhealthy food and drink” could be banned across London Underground, Overground, buses and bus shelters. City Hall has announced. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, says he wants to tackle the "ticking time bomb" of child obesity in the capital.

  • Coventry Cathedral has decided to scrap admission fees - eight years after they were first introduced. The ‘admission free’ policy started on 4th May after a special celebration event held by the Archbishop of Canterbury. The cathedral is now free to enter, with visitors invited to make a donation if they wish.

  • Gas and electricity supplier Npower is raising energy bills by an average of £64 a year for a million customers. The average 5.3% dual fuel price hike comes into effect on 17th June and follows earlier rises announced last month by its "Big Six" rivals.
