Join us in praying for Scripture Union ministries – for those sharing the good news and for the children and young people they share it with
Chris Eales is trialling a new club based on the residential Go Wild. It will be like a Bushcraft version of Guardians of Ancora clubs for schools and will run for six weeks. The first started last week in Tawstock in North Devon. Pray that this will be successful and lead to new ministry opportunities.
Prayer Spaces have proved an effective way of helping children and young people to reflect on the place that God might have in their lives. Pray for the prayer space week in a Chester high school organised by local mission partner Chester Christian Schools Work.
Pray for local mission partner Faith in Schools Newham as they talk today to reception children about the parable of the lost sheep. On 10 July they will be talking to Year 4 children about why the Bible is special.
Starting this week, local mission partner GenR8 in Cambridgeshire will be visiting over one hundred and forty primary schools with their friendship-themed summer assembly. Pray for the six volunteer teams as they share the good news about how a friendship with God can impact lives today.
Guardians of Ancora celebrates its third birthday this month. Thank God for the million-plus users, and for those who have had the vision and skills to develop the game and to use it in local contexts. Give thanks, too, for the generous supporters and trusts who have enabled this project to develop.
Scripture Union in Nepal have Teens’ Teacher Training in Lalitpur next week (18–20 June). They are expecting about fifty young adults who are committed to lead teenagers in their churches. Pray that they will gain new skills.
Please pray for the team from local mission partner Learn4Life in Reading as they visit a school next week, for a half-week of assemblies, RE lessons, games and activities, asking that God will lead the way on everything they do there.
