Praying for the Nation of Scotland

Praying for revival in the church and transformation in the nation

In Unity: by committing to working together.
Through Faith: by believing our prayers are being effective.
With Perseverance: by never giving up!


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]

‘As One!’ – The Shield 

Roman shields‘As One!’ is our 40-day prayer call leading up to the Scottish Parliament elections on 5 May. Jointly promoted by Pray for Scotland and Parliamentary Prayer Scotland this exciting new prayer initiative calls on God’s people in every region to ‘raise a prayer shield’ over their city/town/community in the run up to the elections – and beyond.

The Shield returns to Edinburgh

On 4 & 5 May the Shield will be back in Edinburgh.  For details of the programme for the 2 days, including a prayer walk down the Royal Mile and a prayer time outside the Parliament click here

The Shield 40-days tourUntitled

As a visual symbol of the prayer call, and to connect the nation over the initial 40 days, a Shield displaying a Cross with ‘As One!’ across it will be taken round the nation (see image). As it travels from town to town and local Council area to area, our prayer is that local Churches will be encouraged to come together to pray for their communities and the nation. As part of the tour, a prayer of blessing will be said by one area over the next, creating a ‘river of blessing’ throughout Scotland.

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!
