For the ninth week running, 14 Churches and Christian organisations across Scotland are calling on Christians to pray at the same time in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please join in prayer at 7 pm on Sunday 24th May. Rt Rev Dr Martin Fair said: "I’m delighted to have read that in the last couple of months google searches for ‘prayer’ have increased dramatically. "But reading about what prayer is and how to do it is the only the start of it. After that it’s time to actually pray! "And what better than to join with brothers and sisters from across the nation at 7pm on Sunday to pray our way through this ongoing crisis. I commend it to you and look forward to being with you, in Spirit, on Sunday evening." "In the Gospel of John (17: 1-11), Jesus prays for his disciples in anticipation of the time when he will no longer be with them. What is it that he prays for? Jesus asks the Father to ‘protect’ his friends. Whilst he was with them, Jesus protected and shielded the disciples and later in his prayer he prays for each one of us. The ascended Lord Jesus continues to pray for us and assures us that his presence will be renewed through the gift of the Holy Spirit." We pray:
