Prayers for Parliament and the Nation: Friday, 8 February 2019

" 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

  • Councillors in Edinburgh's have voted in favour of a visitor levy or “tourist tax.” This would be a £2-per-night charge added to the price of any room for the first week of a stay.

  • Energy giant SSE has announced the loss of 160,000 customers in the final three months of last year, leaving it with 5.88 million accounts. The firm blamed "challenging market conditions" and the price cap on bills.

  • Labour MP Luciana Berger is facing a no confidence vote next week from local party members who accuse her of "continuously criticising" Jeremy Corbyn. The MP has spoken out over the party's handling of anti-Semitism and its stance on Brexit.
