Prayers for Parliament and the Nation: Friday, 6 April 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

  • In fewer than 100 days, more than 50 people have been killed in London, which raises serious concerns about how to tackle violent crime on the city’s streets. Thirty-four people have died from stabbings with a further seven people dying from gunshot wounds.

  • A new sugar tax on soft drinks started on April 6th. It is intended to help reduce obesity, which is a major cause of preventable illnesses such as cancer, type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

  • Bibles can no longer be purchased online in China, despite the government publishing a new document claiming that it allows freedom of worship. The disappearance of Bibles from Internet retailers is the latest restriction that China has placed on its fast-growing Christian population.
