Today we’re praying for the political leaders, including local, national and European representatives!
Whichever way you voted in the EU Referendum, and whatever colour your political leanings – today is a significant day with the EU Summit! With all the confusion and complications of Brexit, we can stand on the assurance that at least Jesus knows the way to navigate through this process!
