Lighthouses of Prayer in Orkney

Orkney Lighthouse2

Board but not bored

Not the quite the Northern Lighthouse Board but certainly not the bored northern lighthouses either as 18 people met representing at least14 Lighhouses of Prayer which are still meeting in Orkney!

At the most recent meeting on Friday, 3 September, 2010 held in the St. Magnus Centre ((Kirkwall) It was good to hear news of the different groups who meet weekly, fortnightly or monthly – depending on their circumstances.

Just like lighthouses which flash at different frequencies on different islands, each group have their own way of spreading the light and now there is also their answer to the Pole Star lighthouse supply vessel as Willie Buchan’s mobile prayer lighthouse go on the road to bring encouragement to smaller groups.

It was good to hear feedback from the training day in Caithness and there was encouraging news of the new group in Stromness plus answers to prayer from the islands of Eday, Stronsay and Westray as lighthouses get back into the new season of prayer during the darker nights! It figures!

I would like to ask for prayer to be revived and revitalized by the Lord. Household salvation for family and grandchildren.

I am deeply grateful for prayer support.
