Prayers – week beginning 4th November 2018

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 4
Please pray for the new members of the transatlantic community group. It now involves all four movements in Britain and Ireland, anglophone Canada, the USA, Jamaica and Trinidad. The Caribbean movements are eager to reshape their ministries around a focus on ‘the 95’.

Monday 5
Today Geoff Brown is taking an assembly in King’s Academy in Middlesbrough. As we thank God for the open door that exists in many schools, let’s pray for Geoff and for all others who will be going into schools today.

Tuesday 6
Local mission partner GenR8 have an assembly tour ‘The Special Gift’ with seven teams visiting 150 primary schools. Pray for good health, safe travels and that the special message of Christmas will be heard clearly.

Wednesday 7
Join with local mission partner Great Wood Trust in giving thanks for the opening of the new mess hut in April which will benefit Scripture Union residentials and local schools who use the site during term time. Pray for chaplain, Patrick Weld, as he works alongside the schools giving Christian input.

Thursday 8
Guardians of Ancora clubs continue to grow in popularity and the time has come to review and revise the resources for them. Please pray for inspiration for the team of staff and club organisers who are shaping new ideas.

Friday 9
Local mission partner Missional Generation work along the M62 corridor. Pray that at their Mission United Faith in Life gathering this weekend the young people will grow in faith, be excited about the possibilities of local mission activities and discover ways of sharing their faith.

Saturday 10
Thank God for the way in which the Josiah Spiers Benevolent Fund has been able to provide much-needed financial help to some former members of staff. Pray the trustees will be able to identify those who once served on the staff of SU who would be encouraged and helped by a gift this Christmas.
