Pray for Neil
You can watch Neil taking his oath here
As we pray for Neil and all MPs it is good to recall the prayer that is used everyday in the House of Commons at the commencment of parliamentary business:
"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. Amen."
