Hackney and Stoke Newington

God of the City,

We offer to you the life of the London Borough of Hackney - its diversity of faith, culture and ethnicity, its sense of community and neighbourliness and its vibrant, joyful atmosphere.

Yet for every joy there is a sadness, for every celebration there is a struggle, and for every act of kindness there is an act of hatred.

We pray for those excluded economically and socially by the gentrification of the borough – may they feel at home.

We pray for all victims and perpetrators of gun and knife crime - may they find healing and peace.

We pray for all those who are homeless or vulnerably housed - may they find justice.

God of Empathy, and Action,

in Jesus you call us to love our neighbours. Help us to understand the lengths we must go to, and the price we must sometimes pay to ensure that all your people are safe and free.
