Prayers – week beginning 15th October 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 15

Praise God for a Consultation on Ministry among children and young people with disabilities, bringing together representatives from several SU national movements with experience in the field. Pray that the guidelines, training materials and resources being produced will inspire and equip other movements to explore this ministry.


Monday 16

Scripture Union England and Wales is working with SU International to rebuild ministry in English-speaking nations in the Caribbean. Pray for Tim Hastie-Smith as he meets with key leaders this week.


Tuesday 17

Today sees the publication of Diary of a Disciple, Peter and Paul’s Story. Acts is presented in the same engaging way as Luke in Diary of a Disciple, which has captured the imagination of thousands of children. Pray that many more will engage with the Bible through this and meet Jesus for themselves.


Wednesday 18

Local Mission Partner Beverley Schools Christian Trust give thanks for Andrea Simpson as she moves on, and ask for prayer for the process of appointing her successor and reshaping the role. Give thanks for the team of volunteers that she has developed across a wide area.


Thursday 19

Pray that God will open doors into more schools, especially secondary schools, and for an increase in the number of churches who support them. Pray too for Local Mission Partner Faith in Schools based in Newham.


Friday 20

Please pray for Local Mission Partner Southport and Area Schools Worker Trust’s developing work with Christians Against Poverty, as they start delivering the Children’s and Young People’s Money Course in schools, addressing curriculum needs and connecting young people with the mission of the church.


Saturday 21

The North West Region have contact with a number of non- Christian young people who went to Glenbrook Adventure holiday in the summer. Pray that they can keep up the contact with them and that this will lead to them finding faith in Jesus.
