Prayer for London

London is clearly not in the Diocese in Europe, but our Diocesan Office and my office are located here. Deacon Frances and some of the Diocesan Staff live in areas that are affected by the rioting and violence of the past days. Please remember them and the people of this city at this time. 

The Church of England has produced a prayer, written in the wake of the disturbances in our cities.  

Prayer for Peace in our Communities
Gracious God,
We pray for peace in our communities this day.
We commit to you all who work for peace and an end to tensions,
And those who work to uphold law and justice.
We pray for an end to fear,
For comfort and support to those who suffer.
For calm in our streets and cities,
That people may go about their lives in safety and peace.
In your mercy, hear our prayers,
now and always. Amen
