The Bishop of Connor and the Bishop of Down & Dromore have invited Belfast churches in their dioceses to use the prayer below in relation to the unrest across the city during worship this Sunday morning. The same prayer will be prayed in Presbyterian, Methodist and Roman Catholic Churches.
Together as the people of God we pray for this city.
God of love whose love streams unceasingly and relentlessly to all, we cry to you for our city.
We pray for peace on our streets, for economic well–being, for understanding across our differences.
Build us as one community, though diverse, that being reconciled to you we might be reconciled to one another.
Lord, turn our hearts to you that your glory might dwell in this city.
We pray this in the name of Jesus who is Lord of all. Amen.
