Pray for Scotland exists to promote and support prayer for every aspect of our nation. We believe prayer changes things” and that “God hears and answers our prayers”. 
Through this website we provide resources to help you pray more effectively, plus news on prayer activities including the latest on Lighthouses of Prayer – praying for your local street/neighbours.

You will find information about the latest events being planned, and reports on significant previous events and prophetic words spoken over Scotland. You can sign up to receive our e-letters and printed newsletters – see panel on left – and if you need any more information, or you want us to visit you or lead training on prayer or Lighthouses – please contact us by email, phone or post.

‘Lord, may Your Church continue to cry out :
“Your Kingdom come, Your will be done!” ‘

Our Vision

Pray for Scotland is a networking prayer ministry. Our vision is to see the Church, the ‘Body of Christ’ in every community, united in saturating Scotland in prayer for:

  • revival in the Church,
  • transformation in every area of society,
  • the Kingdom of God to rule and reign in Scotland.

A key part of our vision is to see every street in Scotland prayed for regularly – a ‘Lighthouse of Prayer’ in every street.

We believe that as folk from different church backgrounds meet regularly to pray for their community and the nation, unity in purpose will grow and God will ‘command His blessing’. [John 17:22; Psalm 133]

Time for prayer – St Andrew’s Day 2016

As many of you will recall Pray for Scotland was part of a group who co-ordinated a day of prayer for the nation on St Andrew’s Day in 2011, 2012 and 2013. We paused in 2014 as 30 November fell on a Sunday and since then our focus has been on the elections in 2015 and 2016 plus the EU referendum and its aftermath.

We welcome any call to pray for Scotland and in that spirit we are pleased to support the call from the Free Church of Scotland to come together in prayer – in whatever way that is suitable and possible for each one of us – on Wednesday 30 November.

Praying the Lord’s Prayer daily

A few years ago many thousands in the nation joined in a prayer initiative to stop what they were doing in the middle of each day and spend a few moments praying the Lord’s Prayer. Many are still doing this – are you one of them? It only takes a few moments – set your watch or phone for a time that suits you and join in!
