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 13
Today Stort Valley Schools Trust are running a Pray for Schools event in Saffron Walden. Pray that this will encourage many to pray for the work as they continue to run six lunch clubs and two after school clubs in secondary schools across Sawbridgeworth, Bishop’s Stortford and Saffron Walden.

Monday 14
SU national mission partner Festive are developing video resources, testimonies and blogs for YouTube, increasingly the best place to communicate with young people of a college age. Pray that this YouTube channel will inspire and equip students in their faith and witness at college.

Tuesday 15
The North East and Yorkshire team are planning a full programme of holidays and short breaks this summer. Pray for the teams that there will be effective planning aimed at providing exciting programmes with a clear Christian message.

Wednesday 16
Please pray for SU Thailand as they revisit schools, churches and individuals seeking to further understand their needs and share their partnership programme. Please pray that their ministry will spread into many churches.

Thursday 17
SLAM, which runs next weekend, is a fun, sport-based weekend for 11–14s in North Wales, providing a chance to explore some deep questions of life and faith. Pray for John Settatree and Mike Adams of SU Wales as they lead, and that many young people will come.

Friday 18
Following a successful evangelistic weekend for 8–11s organised at the request of churches in the Mansfield area, a similar event for 11–14s this coming weekend will be led by development worker Bob Goody. Pray that this will result in many young people responding to the love of Jesus.

Saturday 19
Chaplaincy Central, a national mission partner, give thanks for the new chaplaincy support networks that have been established. Please pray that the conference they are planning in June will encourage, empower and equip chaplains as they serve many young people who have no other contact with church.
