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 10

Please pray for the two E3 journeys being run by SU New Zealand (9–20 December) to help students in the last two years of high school develop faith and leadership skills and reflect on the opportunities and possibilities of life after school.

Monday 11

The team in Wales are running Christmas Wrapped Up events in partnership with schools and local churches. Pray that the hundreds of children who hear the Christmas story in this way will grasp its significance and discover the love of Jesus.

Tuesday 12

Give thanks for the three new Guardians of Ancora clubs started last year in the South West and for other expressions of interest. Pray for the ongoing discussions about more new clubs, asking for right decisions and for people to run them.

Wednesday 13

As copies of The First Christmas are distributed through Trussell Trust Foodbanks, Prison fellowship’s Angel Tree Project and Children’s Hospitals, one of which has a carol service today, pray that children will read them and think about the message.

Thursday 14

Pray for Simon Barker, central region team leader, and the 24 Doors of Advent project in Olney, asking that as church teams visit sports clubs, nurseries, schools, and residential homes to sing a carol and explain the Christmas message, those who hear will think more deeply about Christmas.

Friday 15

Pray for preparations taking place for two New Year holidays for young people running 30 December to 2 January: Genesis in Brackley and Breakthrough in the North East. Pray that in the midst of the fun and excitement those who come will enter 2018 with a new resolve to follow Jesus.

Saturday 16

Today Trevor Ranger of local mission partner Synergy is taking part in an open air Christmas community event in North Bristol. Local mission partner, Scripture Union Ministries Trust (Isle of Man), have a Christmas service for young people. Pray that both events will reach those who do not know Jesus.
