The House of Commons starts with a prayer

I get emails telling me today’s workings in the House of Commons daily and a bit I have noticed before but have took little heed off, like the actions of our current batch of MP’s seem to prove daily also, is that each working day the House of Commons starts with a Christian Prayer.

I copy it here for you to read and digest for a moment.

House of Commons

The Speaker’s Chaplain usually reads the prayers. The form of the main prayer is as follows:

“Lord, the God of righteousness and truth, grant to our Queen and her government, to Members of Parliament and all in positions of responsibility, the guidance of your Spirit. May they never lead the nation wrongly through love of power, desire to please, or unworthy ideals but laying aside all private interests and prejudices keep in mind their responsibility to seek to improve the condition of all mankind; so may your kingdom come and your name be hallowed.


Attendance to praters in voluntary and as I said earlier, by the actions of our MP’s we can assume that attendance is quiet low.

Maybe if they were forced to go to prayers and head the words of wisdom within this prayer, we would not be in as much of a political mess are we are today.
