Raise a shield of prayer for your area
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.
