Day of Prayer for the Media

The Archbishop of York, Dr.John Sentamu has written a prayer thanking God for those journalists ‘who risk their security and even their lives to expose injustice’. His prayer was written in support of first-ever Day of Prayer for the Media held on Sunday 20 May 2012.

Lord Jesus Christ, you speak and bring all that is seen and unseen into being: we give you thanks for the gift of the media to reach the far flung places of the earth with messages of hope and life. We give you thanks for those who risk their security and even their lives to expose injustice and to bring news of hope. May they strive to be the bearers of good news that all people may come to know the abundant life for which we have been created; and yet more wonderfully redeemed in Jesus Christ. We offer our prayer in your name, in the power of the Holy Spirit for the glory of the Father. Amen.
