Pray For Scotland: Election 2019 - November 20, A plumbline of righteousness

 

"Righteousness exalts a nation." [Prov 14:34]

"Righteousness will be the sceptre of Your Kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness." [Heb 1:8]

"Peacemakers who sow in peace, raise the harvest of righteousness." [James 3:18]

 

In 2005 a major prophetic conference - ‘Fire from the North’ - was held in Shetland. This was followed by ‘Islands Ablaze’ in Orkney, and then in 2008 with ‘Fire from The Isles’ in Jersey, where the Lord told us to draw a line from Shetland to Jersey and note where it went.

 

The first landfall was Holy Island (Lindisfarne) and the Lord said, "I am placing a plumb line of righteousness through the nation." Confirmation came shortly after with the financial crash, followed by the uncovering of unrighteousness in practically every area of national life since then.

 

ORCAS (ORkney, CAithness, Shetland) is a gathering of believers building unity and seeking revival in these counties and beyond. We believe the LORD is putting a plumb line of righteousness through the nation, and we need to pray for His righteousness to permeate every area of society.

 

When we, as Kingdom citizens, relate together in unity, there will come about a Godly righteousness that will flow through the nation. Like Jesus’ description of the Kingdom in Luke 13:21, it will be like the "yeast that a woman took and mixed into a large amount of flour until it worked through the dough." I believe that the lack of Kingdom unity inhibits the rule of the King. We are ‘one in Christ’, so let’s start living out that unity that He died and rose again to achieve.

Please pray:

 

* give thanks for the areas where there is strong unity locally between Christians and churches, and pray that this would spread across the nation;

* for a Kingdom people who will bring the Kingdom into every geographic area of our land;

* for the plumb line of righteousness to be established in this nation;

* for the election of men and women of honesty, moral courage and integrity who will bring righteousness into Parliament.
