Sunday 14th September
- Include prayer about the Referendum vote and for the nation in a Sunday morning and/or evening service.
- On Sunday morning, hold a minute’s silence before God at 11.59am, then at 12 noon pray the Lord’s Prayer (with the option of ringing the church bells for 1 minute after praying – a peal of bells sounding out simultaneously over the nation!).

National Church Leaders launch Referendum Prayer Call
With the Referendum fast approaching, the national leaders of many of the major denominations and church groups in Scotland have joined in a unique ‘call’ to the Church to pray about the vote and the kind of Scotland we wish to see in the future, whatever the result.
Will you help to publicise the prayer call? If you are a church leader – will you encourage your congregation to take part in one of the ways the letter suggests on either Sunday 14th or Wednesday 17th – or both?

If you are a church member – will you encourage your leadership to be involved, in whatever way suits your church best, and will you commit to praying on one or both days? Please also circulate the letter to your contacts and tell your friends about it on Facebook and Twitter etc.
If your church will be taking part in some way, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your church name and town/city, so we can build up a picture of the prayer taking place all over Scotland.
For suggested prayer topics/notes, please email: email@example.com
At this crucial time for our nation, the call to the church is: ‘Rise up and Pray’!
