The Moderator is encouraging everyone to join him in taking part in the Thy Kingdom Come global prayer movement.
Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair has backed the Scottish Church Leaders Forum in calling all Christians to join the ecumenical season of prayer, which will run from Ascension Day, 21 May to Pentecost Sunday.
The Scottish church leaders have released a statement saying:
“On behalf of the undersigned churches in Scotland, we welcome the opportunity to participate in the Global Prayer Initiative: Thy Kingdom Come 2020.
“Now in its fifth year, the movement draws thousands of Christians together, across different denominations and traditions, to pray for their friends, family and neighbours to come to know the love of Jesus.
“In the face of the Covid 19 pandemic, Thy Kingdom Come resources have been adapted to enable churches, families and individuals to pray and worship in their homes, through a collection of resources, in line with social distancing guidelines.
Moderator invites us to join in Thy Kingdom Come
For the first time this year, Christians are not only encouraged to pray for others to know the love of Christ, but to also practically demonstrate their love and care through action during the 11 days, through an initiative called Prayer and Care.
“All key resources are available as digital downloads on the Thy Kingdom Come website and offer practical ways in which family and church can be involved.
“At this time especially, we commend this initiative to you and invite you to participate and pray: ‘Thy Kingdom come’.”
