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 28 
SU Rwanda praise God for his presence during their 150th Anniversary celebrations when they also officially opened SU Rwanda house with members of the SU General Assembly, staff and guests from the UK praising God for all that he has done in Rwanda. 

Monday 29 
Sixteen per cent of children playing Guardians of Ancora would say they are definitely not Christians; but within a month, eighty-five per cent of them feel warmer to God, Jesus and the Bible. Please pray that more non-Christian children will be attracted to play and move closer to God. 

Tuesday 30 
This week Trevor Ranger of local mission partner Synergy is running a Teambuilder holiday club in the Wiltshire village of Sutton Benger, with an all-age event on Sunday morning. Pray that many children and families will take this opportunity to hear of the love of Jesus and respond. 

Wednesday 31 
Pray for all Light Parties taking place across the country, that churches would effectively communicate the light of Jesus to their communities. 

Thursday 1
Every year we run a special Christmas Campaign to bring the Christmas story to a wide range of children who are not involved with church. Pray that the necessary funds will come in, and that many books will be distributed so that children can encounter the truth of Christmas. 

Friday 2 
The second Creative Collective takes place this weekend with the mission innovation team meeting with a range of specialists to explore ideas for new resources (see page 33). Pray that God will inspire participants with fresh and imaginative content for print and digital publication enabling ‘the 95’ to encounter Jesus. 

Saturday 3 
Pray that at Illuminate Peterborough next week many young people will hear something of God’s love in schools and be challenged to follow Jesus at the end of week concerts.

Prayers for September – November 2018
