Raise a shield of prayer for your area

Rutherglen Reformer - - News From The Pews -

Croft­foot Parish Church will host ‘As One! Prayer Shield!’ on Fri­day night.

The event is a na­tional call to prayer pro­moted by Pray for Scot­land, and Par­lia­men­tary Prayer Scot­land, to en­cour­age the Church to stand to­gether ‘as one’ and to raise a shield of prayer for their ar­eas in 2016.

The ini­tial fo­cus is to pray for God’s guid­ance on all as­pects of the elec­tions to the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment, but also to pray for your own lo­cal needs. As part of the tour, a prayer of bless­ing will be said by one area over the next, cre­at­ing a ‘river of bless­ing’ through­out Scot­land.

The ini­tial fo­cus is the 40 days from Easter Sun­day, March 27, to the elec­tions for the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment on 5 May 2016 – pray­ing specif­i­cally about all as­pects of the elec­tions and at the same time for your area.

The shield is in South La­nark­shire this week and Croft­foot church has been cho­sen as the venue where it will be passed on to Glas­gow.

It is hoped there will be a good rep­re­sen­ta­tion from lo­cal churches and in­di­vid­u­als to show sup­port for this ven­ture.

The event is non-de­nom­i­na­tional. All are wel­come from all churches.

It will take place on Fri­day, April 15 at 7.30pm.
