Prayers – week beginning 18th November 2018

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 18 
Please pray for success for regional leadership training and branch activities run by SU Swaziland resulting in enhanced partnerships with school teachers, increased local support for SU activities and effective local level fundraising. 

Monday 19 
As we enter the second week of SHINE, pray for the Christian groups looking at ‘how God wants to use you’ while non-Christian groups are encouraged to see that God cares and to ‘Go and find out’ about Jesus. Pray for week 3 in which groups will be encouraged to put on or attend an event in school that enables pupils to explore who Jesus is and what it means to follow him. 

Tuesday 20 
Today is European Pray for Schools Day. Make time today to pray for schools in your area and children and young people you know who attend them. 

Wednesday 21 
Thank God that he continues to meet our financial needs and for supporters who give to us so generously and pray regularly for the work of Scripture Union. Pray that God will continue to supply all that we need.

Thursday 22 
National mission partner Festive have posted videos on YouTube of eight young people sharing their stories of living as Christians and sharing their faith in college or sixth form. Pray that these will inspire and encourage other students to live for Jesus on the frontline where they are studying. 

Friday 23 
Social media and the internet form an increasingly important part of the lives of children and young people. Pray that they may use them wisely and that SU will have wisdom in knowing how to use social media in its varied forms. Pray for the impact of SU’s ministry on YouTube.

Saturday 24 
Steve Hutchinson is leading the Family Service at Twyning Chapel near Tewkesbury tomorrow; pray that this will encourage the church who are reaching out to children in their small village, running activities and sending children to Lagger Camps.
