Last weekend, Prayer for Scotland hosted a residential Lighthouses of Prayer weekend on Rua Reidh Lighthouse, Gairloch for leaders of Lighthouses of Prayer.

There were 25 of us gathered together in this remote, but beautiful setting. As I looked out at the storm raging around us, watching the waves crashing against the rocks, and the rain lashing the window, I had that wonderful warm, cosy feeling I always get when I’m protected from the elements, safe and warm inside. Lighthouses are built to withstand the harshest of storms!

It was like a prophetic picture of the situation in our nation and the world at this time. Storms are raging, people are being battered by the elements and there is real uncertainty and fear about the future. How they need to come in out of the storm, to the safe refuge of the God who made the heavens and the earth and everything in it; The Father who loves them and has promised to keep them safe in times of trouble. To know that sure and certain hope and the peace that passes all understanding. That’s what the Lighthouses of Prayer vision is all about. That we can shine out as beacons of hope and security in our communities, pointing people to Jesus, the only sure and eternal hope.

We had a wonderful time of food, fellowship and fun. Everyone came with a heart to worship and, as we lifted up the name of Jesus, there was a wonderful sense of God’s presence with us.

Bert McKaig taught on the Kingdom of God, focusing on Pray, Care, Share, the three aims of the Lighthouse vision. Then we had a time of sharing about what was happening in our own areas. It was exciting to hear what God is doing in the different towns and communities, and get an overview of the nation. The lights truly are going on across Scotland! We had times of prayer, crying out to God for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done in our lives, our churches and our nation. The time was short, but we certainly packed it full!
