A couple of days ago it was announced that there will be a General Election on Thursday, 12 December. Whilst the possibility of an election has been discussed extensively for many a month, some may be in a little shock, while others, with all that’s been going on, may need a brief reminder of how we got here.
Danny Webster, our advocacy and media manager, in his article ‘Faith, hope and love at the coming General Election’, summarises the most recent events to date, and urges members of the Evangelical Alliance to engage in this political process, keeping in mind these three key biblical tenets.
Prayer is undoubtedly the first way we can engage in the election, so we’ve launched a prayer series entitled ‘Praying ahead of the General Election’ to aid the church in its intercession in the run up to the General Election. It’s a handy resource, so do use it.

Now, may the Lord of peace Himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
