Praying for the city

“It was joyful,” said one of the participants at our prayer walk. “It felt good to be out praying in the city. It was humbling at the same time. A couple of guys were shivering as we were talking to them.” Our prayer walk took place on 25 April.

Rough sleeping in GlasgowMany of the men and women who are rough sleeping have complex needs, including addiction issues and poor mental health. We are very aware that only Jesus can make a difference in their lives and help them get to a place where they are able to get into suitable accommodation.

Answers to prayer

So we are very grateful to everyone who joined us on a freezing Tuesday night to walk the streets and pray for God’s transforming power. Those who were rough sleeping seemed pleased that people were thinking of them and were out praying for them.

We saw answers to our prayers during the evening itself, including being able to alert the police to a vulnerable young girl who appeared to be in danger and putting one young man in contact with the Hamish Allan Centre [the Council’s out of hours homelessness casework teams]. He got accommodated that night. Two people who we prayed for came into Glasgow City Mission the next day to get help.

Reflecting on the evening, one participant said he’d really noticed the contrast between the amount of money there is in the city, evidenced by the fancy shops, cranes and cars and the men and women rough sleeping.
