29 March Day of Humiliation & Prayer

29 March Day of Humiliation & Prayer

Following a recent meeting of the Public Questions, Religion and Morals Committee, and in light of the current Coronavirus pandemic, a day of humiliation and prayer has been called for.

The Committee noted how they were, “conscious throughout of our great need to appeal to the Almighty God, to deliver us from this danger, and to cause eternal and saving blessings to flow through our repentance and acknowledgment of Christ. In light of this the Committee would call for all our congregations, together with brethren outwith our denominational bounds who may wish to join with us, to mark the Lord’s Day, 29th March 2020, as a day of both humiliation and prayer, both in public and private worship, in relation to the current crisis facing the nation and the world, due to the spread of the Covid-19 virus.”

And, “This call is made both in humble acknowledgement of our utter unworthiness to be heard, and our steadfast confidence in the mercies of our God. Those unable to attend public worship due to self-isolation or social distancing, are encouraged to engage in suitable acts of worship in their own homes.”
