Following the call for prayers for peace in Belfast from the President of the Methodist Church in Ireland, the Presiding Archbishop of the NCC has reiterated this call for prayer.
Speaking this evening from Bedford, Archbishop Peter said,
“I earnestly ask that all priests and members of the National Catholic Church of the UK and Ireland pray this prayer in Christian solidarity with their brothers and sisters in Belfast.”
The Prayer for Peace
God of love whose love streams unceasingly and relentlessly to all, we cry to you for our city. We pray for peace on our streets, for economic well-being, for understanding across our differences. Build us as one community, though diverse, that being reconciled to you we might be reconciled to one another. Lord, turn our hearts to you that your glory might dwell in this city. We pray this in the name of Jesus who is Lord of all. Amen.
Our Blessed Lady, Queen of Peace, pray for the people of Belfast.
