Jun 12, 2024

General Election 2024

On behalf of the churches that we serve, we encourage Christians in Scotland to engage actively, constructively, and charitably in the democratic process of the General Election called for 4th July 2024.

We pray:

 Lord our God, you are the maker of heaven and earth

And in your image we are shaped

That we might care for creation

And for all that you have made.

May a deepening concern for the world we share

Shape our vision for the future that is to come.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.


Your presence is revealed through Christ

In the midst of all the places where people dwell,

And so we pray for the welfare of the city

And for all who dwell in the cities and towns of our nation.

May their concerns be heard and understood

That our towns and cities might flourish and prosper in these days.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.

You promise renewal by your Spirit

To all whose hearts are open to receive,

And so we pray for the renewal of our rural communities

And for the islands of our nation.

May the voice of the islanders be heard

And the contribution of the land to our well-being be embraced.

Lord,in your mercy,                

Hear our prayer.


Lord our God, you see the people of our nation

And understand the heart of their concerns.

Grant to all who stand for office

A desire to understand and to share those concerns.

May our Parliament shape our nation for the good of all

And may we see our society renewed, through Christ and by your Spirit.

Lord, in your mercy,

Hear our prayer.
