For the first and probably the last time words accompany a Sunday angel. This prayer has been produced for the referendum due to take place in Scotland on 18th September:
Lord, we bless you for you have fashioned our land and daily refresh it;
you have sent forth your spirit and created us;
you have opened your hand and filled us with good things.
Bless us, your people, as we consider the future of our nation.
May your glory endure here for ever and may we sing to you as long as we live;
through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever. Amen .
Wherever you may be in the world I ask for you prayers for Scotland at this time. Just as the angels are upholding the lion rampant a traditional symbol of Scotland in this roof boss, please lift the people of this land to God in prayer, for we need your prayers.
