Prayers – week beginning 23rd December 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 23 
Pray for those who attended the SU Singapore Youth Bible Conference earlier this month asking that as they work through what they learned God will give them confidence to live for him and share the good news with others. 

Monday 24 
This Christmas, pray for those who will spend Christmas and the New Year alone without family or friends – the elderly, single parents and other isolated people. Pray for children who will be separated from a parent or siblings at this time of year. 

Tuesday 25 
As we read familiar passages and rejoice in the wonder of Jesus coming among us, pray for writers of Daily Bread and Encounter with God, and for the WordLive community. Ask God to give a renewed vision for Bible engagement in the churches. 

Wednesday 26 
Local mission partner The Archway Trust, working in villages in Northamptonshire, give thanks to God for the many unchurched people who have responded to their Sunday afternoon events (Pizza, Praise and Puppets and Pop-Up Praise) in the three years since they started. Please pray for funds to enable the work to continue. 

Thursday 27 
Local mission partner Psalms have started outreach through sport in a large new development near Gloucester which has no sense of community and where the church has found it di± cult to find ways of engaging. Pray that sport may provide this opportunity. 

Friday 28 
During the winter months, the south west team are touring the region, inspiring and equipping churches to step out and share the good news with children who don’t go to church. Pray for well-attended and fruitful evenings, and for new partnership opportunities. 

Saturday 29 
Pray for the work of Local mission partner Great Open Door in Harlow, as they go through a time of change. Pray that as they contemplate new staff and new direction there will be a smooth transition, so that they can continue reaching out to schools.

Keep praying!
