A letter from Revd Lynn Green

General Secretary of our Baptist Union of Great Britain

1 Timothy 2:2-3 "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. This is good, and pleases God our Saviour."

In the next few days, supported by our Joint Public Issues Team, I and other Church leaders will be writing to our re-elected Prime Minister, assuring him and his government, both of our prayers as Christian communities, and also our concern that issues of Truth, Justice, Peace and Wellbeing are recognised as key priorities for our nations.

This is a result that many would not have predicted, which as well as having political consequences, is revealing significant personal implications for many who are now relinquishing office. I want to encourage everyone who is part of Baptists Together to take time to intentionally pray for our political leaders at the outset of this new parliament, and hope that you will make this a priority when you gather for worship in the days ahead.
