Croft­foot Church hosts Prayer Shield

Rutherglen Reformer - - News From The Pews -

Lo­cal paris­hon­ers from churches across Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang banded to­gether last week when the prayer shield was hosted at Croft­foot Par­ish Church.

The As One Prayer Shield is part of a na­tional call to prayer pro­moted by Pray for Scot­land, and Par­lia­men­tary Prayer Scot­land.

Croft­foot was cho­sen as the South La­nark­shire church that would host the shield.

It’s aim is to en­cour­age the Church to stand to­gether ‘as one’ and to raise a shield of prayer for their ar­eas through­out 2016.

As part of the shield’s tour through­out Scot­land, a prayer of bless­ing was said by one area over the next, with the aim of cre­at­ing a ‘river of bless­ing’ through­out Scot­land.

On the night there were prayers fo­cused on the needy in Scot­land and on lead­ers of in­tegrity to lead the na­tion. Af­ter­wards the shield went into Glas­gow city cen­tre to the Street Pas­tors Base.

Pictured are Chris­tians from lo­cal churches of all de­nom­i­na­tions who want to unite as one in Christ.
