Prayers – week beginning 18th 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

Please pray as we share Jesus with children and young people outside the church.

Sunday 18
Give thanks to God for Colin and Jasmine coming to faith, for the SU South West team that help set up the Check it Out after-school club, and for vicar Andy Dodwell and others involved.

Monday 19
Pray that God will speak to many more children through Check it Out and other SU school clubs so that, like Jasmine, they’ll want to know more!

Tuesday 20
Thank God for the freedom we still have in England and Wales to share the gospel in schools. Ask him to protect that freedom, so that we can continue to run school clubs and assemblies that tell children and young people about Jesus.

Wednesday 21
Ask God to bless the SU regional teams across England and Wales as they work with churches and local mission partners to find new ways to take the good news of Jesus to where children are.

Thursday 22
Give thanks to God for his financial provision through the generosity of our supporters that is enabling us to develop and run 150 missions this year, reaching thousands of children with God’s love.

Friday 23
Pray for all the volunteer teams who are helping to run this year’s holidays and missions (see centre spread). Pray too that God will prepare the hearts of the thousands of children and young people attending, to hear and receive him.

Saturday 24
Pray that new SU resources such as Guardians of Ancora will really help non-Christian children and young people to engage with the Bible.

Keep praying
