‘Pray for those in authority’

The Christian Institute is urging prayer for our leaders following the General Election.

With the Conservative Party winning the election, Boris Johnson remains Prime Minister.

Ahead of the vote, The Christian Institute’s resources were widely used, with Election Briefing 2019 being seen online and in print by tens of thousands of people.

Trust God

Ciarán Kelly, Deputy Director at The Christian Institute, reminded supporters that God is sovereign over our nation.

“However we voted, as we digest the result of the election, it’s important to remember that God is on the throne.

“We can trust him as we contemplate the coming weeks and months.


“1 Timothy 2 urges us to pray for those in authority so that we may live quiet and peaceful lives and preach the Gospel.

“We can all do that and continue to be a Christian influence in our society.”
