A prayer for a shared future in the light of Brexit
God of past, present and future, be with us as we take our next steps as nations together. May we strive to love our neighbour as ourselves, listening and speaking with respectful kindness, embracing difference, remembering how much all have been forgiven by you. May we offer friendship, grant mercy, and seek peace and justice in our shared future. Amen
