Prayers – week beginning 17th February 2019

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 17 
From next September, high schools in Ghana will be used by students throughout the year. SU Ghana has previously used schools to run camps. Pray that they will find affordable venues and the resources to build campsites. 

Monday 18 
Solid on Tour is a scaled-down version of the Solid weekend which sees young people enjoying games, inflatables, silent discos and more. This half-term week, the tour will visit various venues across East London and Essex. Pray that young people will have a great time and respond to the good news. 

Tuesday 19 
Pray for non-residential sports camps running around London this week. Using sport and coaching we will be exploring a Bible story and what that might mean for young people on the sports field and in their lives. 

Wednesday 20 
Thank God for all the volunteers who give up their annual leave to serve at our events, bringing all the different skills and talents, and a willingness and passion to share their faith with children and young people. Pray for preparations for residential holidays this spring including Kestrels, GW Tracks, Bridleways and The SU Bake Off 1. 

Thursday 21 
Pray for Grace Inwood (Facilities and Administration Assistant) as she undertakes a variety of unseen but invaluable tasks that enable SU’s national office to run smoothly, and for Ian Gooding (Technical Services Manager) as he looks for ways to use technology more effectively to support our mission. 

Friday 22 
Please pray for Mark Green as he leads the work of replacing our present hard-to-maintain websites for volunteers and holiday bookings, and for contractors who will be developing the new sites. May they see Christ at work in our lives, and be attracted to follow him for themselves. 

Saturday 23 
Today the Youth Evangelism Conference takes place in Cambridge, run by a consortium of Christian agencies including Scripture Union. Pray that delegates will gain fresh enthusiasm and new ideas for mission to ‘the 95’
