There is an election on the 2nd March 2017, Stormont needs the prayers of a united Church.
Jesus said: My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one— I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. (John 17: 20–24)
When we, as the Church, unite to pray for our land, we align ourselves with the will of Jesus as stated in his prayer for all believers. With assembly elections approaching, we have an opportunity to come together and pray and praise God. To give him the worship he deserves, to call out to him for the welfare of our land, to ask for wisdom in our political leadership, to declare his Kingdom to come and his will to be done. Through prayer we can model to the rest of our society that there is strength in unity and hope in Jesus name. When we pray for our government because we believe prayer works. We pray for wisdom, for healing in our land and that we may see the dividing walls of hostility come crashing down. It is the Church who must endeavour to be the very embodiment of unity and forgiveness in Northern Ireland, because it is us who have experienced the grace and forgiveness of God. Let’s pray for our government, for those who have been in office and for those who are about to be elected, that we may “live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our saviour, who wants all men to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth”.1 Tim 2
