Prayers – week beginning 23rd July 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

Sunday 23
Please pray for the Bibel Mobil team from SU Austria as they travel around the country this year, asking that many will be encouraged to read the Bible regularly.

Monday 24
Please pray for the relaunched Marske Mission taking place this week. Pray for the newly formed team to work together well and especially that many local children will go along to the activities and will respond to Jesus.

Tuesday 25
Pray for The 95 Campaign, that it may act as a catalyst for SU and the wider church, encouraging a fresh vision for ministry to children and young people outside the church, so that many who do not know Jesus may be introduced to him.

Wednesday 26
Today Tim Hastie-Smith and Chris Poch leave for the Gambia with a mission team from SU England and Wales. Pray that this trip will bring blessing and growth to SU in the Gambia and to members of the team

Thursday 27
Local Mission Partner MINE have a new trainee starting in Byker. She is from the area, became a Christian through the work of MINE and SU holidays, and now wants to take a year out learning how to share Jesus with others. Pray for her as she starts her year.

Friday 28
Thank God for the all the volunteers who give up a week or more to serve on holiday and mission events this summer. Pray that their faith would be renewed as they see God at work in the lives of children and young people.

Saturday 29
Helen Franklin, Development Worker in Wales, is at The Big Cheese Festival in Caerphilly, which draws an expected 70,000 visitors, today and tomorrow. Children will be able to play Guardians of Ancora or the Welsh version Arwyr Ancora. Pray that for some this will be the start of a journey to Jesus.

Keep praying
