Week Commencing 22 May: General Assembly

  • Give thanks for the willingness of so many elders and other volunteers to give up time and incur expense in going to the General Assembly, and those who are on the Committees, Councils etc that report to the General Assembly
  • Give thanks for Angus Morrison’s work as Moderator over the last year and pray for the new Moderator Russell Barr
  • Pray that Commissioners will be listening for God’s voice so that all the discussions and decisions reflect God’s values and work to build the Kingdom
  • Pray for those who are going as Commissioners for the first time, who feel apprehensive and may not know anyone. May new friendships be forged
