Church of England

Genesis 13:17-18 (ESV)
Arise, walk through the length and the breadth of the land, for I will give it to you.” So Abram moved his tent and came and settled by the oaks of Mamre, which are at Hebron, and there he built an altar to the Lord.

Hebrews 11:8-10 (NKJV)
By faith Abraham obeyed when he was called to go out to the place which he would receive as an inheritance. And he went out, not knowing where he was going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise; for he waited for the city which has foundations, whose builder and maker is God.

Our Father in heaven,

Your servants in the Church of England have not been called to live in a foreign land, but as Christians in a secular society, they are aliens in their native land. Yet they are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.

May they walk in faith through the length and breadth of the land, the soles of their feet establishing Your kingdom in England. Bless their feet.

May they build altars of worship, as the patriarchs of old. Father, You are enthroned upon the praises of Your people. Anoint them with praise and bless their worship. Amen.
