Let’s Pray For General Council
Thank God that our Presbyterian form of Church governance gives a voice to as wide a group of leaders as possible. Pray that the decisions that have been made will honour God and be in line with his will.
Give thanks for the Assembly and for all those who worked hard to bring it to fruition even under difficult circumstances and within the restrictions. Pray that the media coverage and any interviews given will be well received and accurately reflect the mind and intention of the Assembly.
The General Assembly has finished for this year but you can watch the business and worship services on demand on the Presbyterian Church Website.
