Three exegetical, exciting and enthralling teachings on ‘prayer from the Psalms.’ The basis for the conference has been a long time understanding for the necessity to know the way we pray, to who we pray and why we pray. David reveals this profoundly in the Psalms, as do other writers.
I always hoped this teaching could be passed onto others in and around the nation of Scotland, with the desired approach to our prayers becoming more directional, applicable, and of course purposeful. I think we could all do with being taught how to pray.
It is with great thanks to God; we are able to ask Dr Jamie Grant to be with in February 2023.

The building and sanctuary were refurbished about ten years ago. Pews and the elders box replaced, due to termites, with modern chairs and an adaptable platform area in front of the original pulpit. Although many of the ascetics have been replaced, the full wealth of past history is still felt and known through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are very aware of the times gone by, where the awakening presence of God touched many lives. His redemptive salvation through Jesus Christ is still the central point to which we look and hope.
Within the different periods of revival in the area, family worship, scripture reading, and prayer was the first aspect of worship that many relied on. This gift which enables us to speak with the Living God and Father, has somewhat been neglected and overtaken in our age. Possibly through the rush of things around us, possibly the intensity of life, possibly the reliance on technology. Yet with all this Barvas Church of Scotland enjoys the beauty that surrounds us. Yes, sometimes wild and stormy, these creational blessings and simplified lives, brings many to an understanding of God's Sovereign Work. Very often it is with this approach to daily devotion and biblical praise we come to recognise, we are in His hands and His hands alone.

“Prayer should be the breath of our breathing, the thought of our thinking, the soul of our feeling, and the life of our living, the sound of our hearing, the growth of our growing.” Prayer in its magnitude is length without end, width without bounds, height without top, and depth without bottom. Illimitable in its breadth, exhaustless in height, fathomless in depths and infinite in extension. – HOMER W. HODGE
