Prayers - week beginning 26th November 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 26

James and many other children were only able to enjoy an SU holiday last summer through bursaries from the Holiday Fund. Give thanks to God for his provision through the generous gifts of SU supporters.

Monday 27

Please pray for all the children who came on an SU holiday over the last year. Ask God to bless them and surround them with Christians to support and nurture them on their faith journey.

Tuesday 28

Please ask God to bless the growth of the Holiday Fund, so that even more disadvantaged children and young people will benefit from a Scripture Union holiday.

Wednesday 29

Give thanks that we’ve been able to extend the number of holidays we offer. Pray that the new holidays starting at Easter will help many more young people on the journey of faith.

Thursday 30

Across Britain, so many children are growing up in difficult circumstances. Pray that God will draw close to them through the witness of Christians in their community, and learn how much he cherishes them.

Friday 1

Financial circumstances shouldn’t be a barrier to a child hearing about Jesus. Please pray that churches will help make more families in financial need aware of the Holiday Fund so their children can go on a much needed holiday.

Saturday 2

Praise God for such faithful, dedicated volunteers on our holidays, who help the young people to discover how precious they are to God, and how he has a purpose for their lives.
