Praying for England on St George’s Day

England flag in sunlightIt’s St George’s day. I’ve seen a lot of people today and not one of them has mentioned about it, as I drove around Colchester I didn’t see any England flags. If I hadn’t seen various things online I never would have known.

I think we live in a great country, but I think that there are also significant challenges that we are facing.

I’ve decided to mark St George’s day by praying for our nation. Will you join me?

As I have prayed, I was remembered this photo that I took recently. It was a beautiful day and the flag rippling  in the wind with the sun behind it was a beautiful sight. What it reminded me of was of our real need for the light of God to shine in and across our nation.

There is a lot of worry, fear and depression in our nation and I pray that God’s light would shine bringing hope and a new way of living to us all.
