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
Give thanks that in a closed country, SU has been able to appoint a worker and establish a base where they can hold Bible studies, conferences and other activities. Pray that God will help them to make the best use of this resource and to operate freely.
Many young people will have heard about the good news of Jesus through attending a SHINE event in their school. Following on from this, please pray that Christian young people will be encouraged and inspired to continue to share their faith with their friends.
In the north east region, discussions have begun about a new holiday club or beach mission in Saltburn this summer. Pray for fruitful discussions, wise decisions and good planning for this and for a new outreach in Guisborough.
Pray for the finance team as they prepare for the first meeting with the external auditors, asking that good relations will be maintained, that all will be in order and they will demonstrate the love of God in their dealings with them.
Pray for local mission partner York Schools and Youth Trust, as they look to appoint a new part-time schools worker. Pray that they will find a candidate who will fit into the team and help them to encourage the schools community in York.
Love Basketball League, the vision of Toby Chant (development worker in the south west), attracts around eighty children and young people aged 7–14 with no church connections, using basketball as a way of building relationships and showing the love of Jesus. Pray for them as they meet tomorrow.
Forest of Dean X:site, which takes place today, is small but draws children from a wide area, where there may be just one or two children in their church; it provides a way of strengthening their faith and an acceptable place to bring non-church friends. Pray that numbers will grow.
