I write as January draws to a close and parliament faces many different directions on Brexit.
I hope we'll be further on by the time you read this - nevertheless, I commend this prayer to you as the next few weeks unfold:
God of wisdom and strength
who challenges us in our foolishness
and supports us in our weakness;
give to those who lead us
a desire for that which is best,
a commitment to that which is honourable,
a love for that which is true,
and a passion to serve the common good.
In Jesus name,
Wishing you all a Holy Lent and a Joyful Easter
