    Headlines Show Answered Prayer in Orkney, Scotland

    2 Min Read

    Part 1 of 2

    12 February 2024

    In this interview with Crystal, the national coordinator for 24-7 Prayer Scotland, she shares how churches in Orkney united together in response to tragedy – and saw an answer to their prayers.

    Content warning: suicide.

    Orkney is a group of small islands off the north coast of Scotland. With a population of around 20,000 people, the churches there aren’t big enough to sustain a week of day and night prayer individually – but in response to tragic suicides in their community, they united together to intercede.

    Watch as Crystal describes what happened next:

    And prayer didn’t just stay in the church –

    “We were able to meet with a number of local teachers and youth workers and talk about how they can get prayer spaces in schools moving in their local high schools.”

    It’s incredible to hear how a 24-7 Prayer week can unite churches, bring comfort to the grieving, and impact the wider community. If you’re interested in running a week of prayer in a 24-7 Prayer Room, you can learn more here.
