Thought for the day 3 November

3 November
You may not have heard, but there is an election in America today, principally to elect a new president, but also a series of other federal and state posts. America is still the richest and most powerful country in the world, so the choices it makes have an impact on all of us. We pray that they will make choices that lead to a fairer and more peaceful world

Lord, we believe that you care about matters like injustice, abuse, neglect, poverty and corruption, that you want governments to act to address such issues, and create a world with peace and justice. We pray that we may all, citizens and governments alike, work for such a world. We pray that you will inspire the electors of America to see that vision too, and to consider it carefully as they vote

PS Did you hear that Andrex have announced that they have 100m toilet rolls in warehouses ready for the English lockdown?
