Prayers – week beginning 29th October 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 29

Please pray for the asylum seekers welcomed at Rimlishof, the residential property owned by SU France, that they will find a new quality of life; for renewal for the staff and volunteers who work with them; and that the French Government allows this to continue. 


Monday 30

With the launch of The 95 Campaign the mission content team are directing much of their energy to creating resources to reach children and young people who have no contact with the church. Pray that God will give wisdom, direction and creativity as they face new opportunities and new challenges. 


Tuesday 31

Pray for all churches hosting Light Parties tonight, that children and young people would have lots of fun and encounter the light of Jesus. 


Wednesday 1

With Arwyr Ancora, the Welsh version of Guardians of Ancora now established, SU Wales is aiming to set up clubs in as many schools as possible. Pray for good contacts and for a wide range of opportunities so that more children can engage with the story of Jesus. 


Thursday 2

Chaplains in schools and colleges are on the front line of meeting with the 95% of children and young people who have little or no connection to church. Please pray for our National Mission Partner Chaplaincy Central as they seek to strengthen and equip chaplains to respond to the challenges and opportunities they face. 


Friday 3

In Kosova, SU National Director Driton Krasniqi is working on Rojet nga Ankora, an Albanian translation of Guardians of Ancora. SU Kosova is poor in resources and money but rich in vision and enthusiasm. Please pray for Driton as he pioneers this new area of ministry. 


Saturday 4

Tomorrow Steve Hutchinson is leading an All Together time at Hillview Church based on the Explore Together approach that he finds works for all ages, even teenagers. Children from the 95% who don’t usually come, are able to join in, with or without their parents. Pray for him and for a wider use of the Explore Together material.
