Wonderful God, we praise you for all your goodness.

Thank you for the church, your body,

Made of people of every tongue, tribe and nation.

We thank you Lord for the times when we can seek you together,

However we meet, whether in buildings, online, or outdoors,

To celebrate, worship, pray and learn from each other, and from your word.

We pray for all the Christian conferences and festivals that will take place over the next month, and for the local church too.

We ask for unity, refreshment, encouragement and a sense of your Spirit.

Spirit of God, breathe afresh upon your church,

May many come to know you, and others find renewed faith.

In Jesus’ name,


Fred Drummond, director of prayer and Scotland
