 Prayer

Our Gracious Heavenly Father, thank you for your many blessings to us.  We thank you for Jesus for the love and grace that he has shown by his death on the cross at Calvary.  Be near to us at this time, as each of us seeks to live through the present difficulties in lockdown; and not being able to see our loved ones.  Give us your assurance that these times will pass and that you are in complete control of all that is going on.  Grant us the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to change the things we can, and the wisdom to know the difference.  In Jesus Precious Name. Amen     (more prayers under worship section)

This Sunday (20 September), Christians across Scotland will join together in a prayer at 7pm in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 A waterfall

As with previous weeks during lockdown and the phased easing of restrictions, 14 Christian churches and organisations across the country, including the Church of Scotland, have co-signed the letter calling for prayer.

Scottish Christians have been continuing to answer the call to pray at the same time each week, and Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, has been taking part alongside them.

"I’m delighted to have read that in the last couple of months online searches for ‘prayer’ have increased dramatically,” Dr Fair said.

"But reading about what prayer is and how to do it is only the start of it. After that it’s time to actually pray.

"And what better than to join with brothers and sisters from across the nation at 7pm on Sunday to pray our way through this ongoing crisis. I commend it to you and look forward to being with you, in Spirit, on Sunday evening."

We pray:

God who provides,
Hear the cry of your people in their distress
And answer them in the desert places.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God who provides,
Guide your people in barren lands
And hold us safe when we are weak.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God who provides,
May we receive your gracious gifts in the morning
And in the evening discover those gifts renewed.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God who provides,
Give direction to us when we were are lost
And renew our purpose when we are uncertain.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God who provides,
Renew the faith of your people
And equip us to serve you in the place that you have called us to.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.

God who provides,
On this day, may we receive bread from heaven
And know the glory of the Lord revealed.
Lord, in your mercy,
Hear our prayer.
