Together we Pray

‘Let’s allow God’s breathe to blow through the Church to re-charge and to enliven’

 

Rt Rev Susan Brown, Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, invites congregations to join in prayer – the ‘life-blood of the Church and of every person in it’.

Launching the 2018 campaign, the Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Rt Rev Susan Brown, said:

“Prayer is the life-blood of the Church and of every person in it. Prayer works. It changes things. It challenges and envisions us, inspires and encourages us. Without it we are rudderless and we become disorientated.

“Prayer offers direction, breathing space and fresh perspective for us as individuals, as congregations and as a Church nationally. Engaging in prayer together is something that has lain at the heart of the Christian faith ever since the birth of the Church. Today is no different.

“Talking with God, listening for his voice is absolutely central to what we in the Church of Scotland are about as we hurtle through this 21st Century.

“Making the time to sit down together, to ask God to hold us in his heart and to show us the paths he wants us to take, and also to turn from, is so important.

“Let’s make the time to join our voices as one to remember our Church and nation and world before God.

“Let’s give thanks, through Christ, for the journey so far and let’s search out where God’s Spirit is leading us.

“Let’s allow God’s breath to blow through the Church to re-charge and to enliven!”
