Story type:

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

Sunday 12

SU in South Sudan ask for prayer for the current situation in South Sudan where many cannot afford to buy food and there is widespread hunger. Please pray for the movement there as they reach 1,000 students with the Values Education Orientation Course this year. 


Monday 13

Shine in Schools runs over the next three weeks. With the theme ‘Roadtrip: the journey’ it encourages Christian pupils to help non-Christian friends see signposts that point to God. Pray that they will have courage and that they may themselves be signposts to God. 


Tuesday 14

Amanda Dega from Skripta (SU Serbia) is translating a version of Guardians of Ancora in Serbian. Give thanks for a children’s summer camp, based on the game. Pray for Amanda as she manages the project; and for Skripta as they plan how to use the app in their ministry.  


Wednesday 15

Local Mission Partner Learn4Life in Reading ask us to pray for new student leaders of Christian groups: for confidence and inspiration as they lead, and that they may make positive contacts with new students and have opportunities to invite them to the groups. 


Thursday 16

Give thanks to God for all the volunteers who enable the ministry of SU to take place: on an Easter or summer activity, in regular work through the year in schools or clubs, and in administrative and support roles. Pray that God will encourage them. 


Friday 17

Star at the Stable, an opportunity for people to be photographed in a nativity scene, has proved an effective way for SU Wales to open up conversations about Christian faith. Pray for good conversations as Star in a Stable visits Ystrad Mynach tomorrow and Risca and Bargoed next Saturday. 


Saturday 18

Pray that at X:site Gloucester today there will be a good turnout of children including those from The 95, that they will have a good time, that the good news of Jesus will be communicated clearly and that they will be drawn to him.
