Prayers – week beginning 11th June 2017

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 11
Please pray for SU Belarus as they train camp volunteers next weekend. Pray, too, for the Transition Leadership Team of SU East West Asia as they meet in Ho Chi Minh City (16–20) to look at the next steps in developing new work in the region.

Monday 12
During June, six teams from GenR8, Local Mission Partner in Cambridge, will be visiting over one hundred and fifty primary schools as part of their summer tour on the theme of ‘peer pressure’. Pray that children will learn that God sees them as unique and important individuals.

Tuesday 13
Schools are a great place to connect with the 95%. Pray for Local Mission Partner Grantham Christian Ministries as they raise funds to expand their work into secondary schools. Pray too that they may build relationships with three primary schools in which they currently have no work.

Wednesday 14
Local Mission Partner Oswestry Schools Christian Worker Project use after-school drama clubs to help children engage with the story of Jesus. Some of their material is Prayers Week beginning June 11 used in collective worship. Thank God for their enthusiasm and pray that it may lead to children having a relationship with Jesus.

Thursday 15
Give thanks for Lifepath Bunyan in Elstow last month which saw over one thousand children attend over the three days. Pray that something of what they experienced will stay with them and that they will want to explore further.

Friday 16
The South East team are taking a group of young people from East London and Essex to Norwich to play a cricket match. Pray that as youth workers and unchurched young people travel and play together there will be opportunities to share Jesus.

Saturday 17
Pray that a good number of children will come to Xsite North Devon today, including some who do not yet know Jesus, and that in the action-packed environment they will not only have a good time, but also encounter Jesus.
