OXFORD TO CAMBRIDGE RAIL LINK

A PRAYER


Almighty God and Father,

We lift before you all those involved in the consultation process over the Oxford to Cambridge Rail Link, the government and local authorities,

We lift before you the communities that will be affected by their decisions and we pray that individuals that may have different views and opinions will continue to live together in harmony.

May your Church bring peace and reconciliation where there is potential for strife and conflict.

We ask these things in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour, Amen.
