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 22

During Easter every Christian church in Kosova was surrounded by police guards as there were serious threats that churches would be bombed. We praise God that nothing serious happened. Similar security measures took place in Albania and Macedonia. Pray for SU movements who live with such threats.


Monday 23

Thank God for all those who so generously support the work of Scripture Union, and pray that God will continue to supply all our needs.


Tuesday 24

This week Trevor Ranger of Local Mission Partner Synergy will be leading a team of local Christians running a Holiday Bible Club in the Wiltshire village of Sutton Benger. It focuses on Bible characters who became game changers. Pray that those who attend may see how they too can be game changers for God.


Wednesday 25

Please pray for the five new volunteers starting work with national Mission Partner Festive to support and encourage Christian students in colleges and sixth forms. Pray that they will be equipped in every way.


Thursday 26

‘Believe She Is...’ is a group mentoring session run by Local Mission Partner Oswestry Schools Christian Worker Project to help girls work on low selfesteem; it has also led to one-to-one mentoring. Please pray for wisdom for the team and that girls will gain a sense of who they can be in Christ.


Friday 27

Pray for Salt and Light project run by Local Mission Partner SPLAT in Preston and Leyland which provides an opportunity for children to explore Christianity through the arts. Pray for the children as they produce the work, the team as they lead the project and the exhibition to which local people are invited.


Saturday 28

National Mission Partner Sweaty Church aims to envision churches to explore the Christian faith through games and sport. Pray that more churches will have the courage and vision to attempt sports ministry as a way of reaching those outside the church.
