Pray for a good reception in schools and a good turnout at the concert with a clear communication of the good news.

Saturday 6 
Impact, our local mission partner in Bedford, praise God for the way prayer spaces influence children and young people. A staff member commented recently, ‘Thank you so much for setting up a prayer space in school. It was so lovely to see our autistic pupil engaging so well – I have never seen him so peaceful’.
