Christians stand together and recite the Lord's Prayer
Published on 25 March 2020
Christians across the world are standing in solidarity against the impact of the Coronavirus crisis by reciting the Lord’s Prayer.
It has been delivered by Rt Rev Colin Sinclair, Moderator of the General Assembly, on behalf of the Church of Scotland.
The move comes in response to an invitation from Pope Francis sent to all Christian leaders in which he asks that we invoke "together the graces from heaven" and ask "for the end of this pandemic".
Mr Sinclair said: “At a time when normal life is falling apart it is wonderful when Christians come together.
"The Lord's prayer is a wonderfully comprehensive prayer and within it can be found all we need to say.”
