Why Pray for Parliament?

We take the Biblical mandate from 

 

1 Tim 2 v 1-2  “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”

Prayer is effective!

The words inscribed on the mace in the centre of the debating chamber in the Scottish Parliament are - "wisdom, justice, compassion, integrity". We pray for these qualities in our leadership. We also pray for the Queen, the United Kingdom Parliaments and the well-being of our MSPs as they lead our nation.
