“Love and faithfulness meet together, righteousness and peace kiss each other. Faithfulness springs forth from the earth, and righteousness looks down from heaven. The Lord will indeed give what is good, and our land will yield its harvest. Righteousness goes before him and prepares the way for his steps.” [Psalm 85:10-13 NIV]
The National Prayer Breakfast Scotland will be streamed online from 8am-9am on Wednesday 2 June, followed by 12 hours of online prayer for the nation led in sections by over 20 churches, denominations and ministries (details at https://www.npbscotland.org.uk). The theme is ‘Restoration’ and these are the verses they are using.
‘Restoration’ is a major part of the Sannox vision – both the physical restoration of the existing buildings (plus new ones) and the spiritual restoration of an active faith community focussing on the three areas of personal devotion to God, hospitality and service to the community and mission to the wider world. A key element of the vision is to create a house of prayer and worship seeking to answer the call to rediscover the Ancient Paths and find rest for our souls (Jeremiah 6:16), building on the Christian heritage of Sannox and continuing the ‘song’ God started in the 18th century and at the beginning of the 19th Century.
Prayer is a vital key covering and underpinning the vision and everything being done to bring it into being. We give thanks for all who faithfully pray for Sannox, and it is a joy to meet with those who can attend our online monthly prayer gatherings. So if you can, please do join us again at our next monthly prayer gathering on 7 June (see below).
