With a key vote on Brexit due to take place today, 15 Jan, the Dean of Southwark Cathedral has written a prayer for what may be a difficult day…

God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength. (1 Corinthians 1.25)

God of wisdom and strength,
who challenges us in our foolishness,
and supports us in our weakness;
give to those who lead us
a desire for that which is best,
a commitment to that which is honourable,
a love for that which is true
and a passion to serve the common good.
In Jesus’ name.
Amen.
