Praying for our Churches in 2021

By Jenny Wilson, BUS Prayer Guide Co-ordinator

I have been greatly inspired by our National Prayer Live gatherings over 2020 and we will be continuing this on a monthly basis into 2021. It is so good to unite together in prayer for our churches, our nation and our world. In 2020 we have prayed for the Covid-19 pandemic and the governmental and frontline worker response to it, we have heard stories of hope and service in local communities across Scotland and we have prayed for greater wellbeing amidst this challenging situation for young and old alike.

As we move in to 2021, we continue to have the opportunity to pray for our churches throughout the year by following our Prayer Calendar for the year which allocates both churches, people and organisations to be prayed for Sunday by Sunday. We also continue to have our Daily Prayer Guide on our website, on our Facebook page and available through the Prayermate app. It’s so good to receive prayer and praise points from our churches, knowing that Baptists from across Scotland will be lifting up the local work and witness of churches in prayer regularly.

Please do continue to use these resources to inform your prayer for our network of churches across Scotland and I warmly encourage you to send in prayer and praise points for your church during the year. It is so helpful to have more specific prayer points for our churches so that we can pray in to each churches local work.

2020 was a challenging year and 2021 will certainly have it’s challenges too, however I am grateful that we can continue to unite together in prayer for our churches, our nation and our world knowing that our heavenly Father hears and responds to our prayers.

The Prayer Calendar 2021 and monthly Prayer Guides can be found on our prayer page on the website:

Prayer is at the heart of our Union. The prayer calendar is a framework to help individuals or congregations pray for all our churches throughout the year.  Every Sunday evening several hundred people from our churches across Scotland join in our National Prayer Livestream.
