Sunday 2 
Pray for December camps run by SU South Sudan in Juba, Yei and the refugee camp in Uganda which will be attended by over two thousand children and young people. Pray that God will transform their lives and use them to demonstrate how to live in peace in South Sudan. 

Monday 3 
Local mission partner Christian Connections in Schools will be presenting Christmas Unwrapped to around two thousand pupils in the Maidenhead, Slough and Windsor area. Brentwood Schools Christian Worker Trust are taking it into primary schools across the town. Pray that those presenting will have wisdom, sensitivity and conviction. 

Tuesday 4 
Local mission partner Lighthouse Project ask us to pray for their Christmas Explored Workshops taking place in primary schools in Crawley. They give children the opportunity to discover what happened on the fi rst Christmas in an interactive and exciting way. 

Wednesday 5 
Throughout December Simon Barker, regional team leader in the central region, is coordinating Olney churches’ ‘24 Doors of Advent’ carol outreach programme to schools and community groups in the town. Pray that many will grasp the truth of Christmas. 

Thursday 6 
National mission partner Festive remind us that during December Christian Unions in sixth forms and colleges up and down the country will be preparing a number of outreach events for Christmas. Please pray for boldness, wisdom and protection over these events, and that many will respond. 

Friday 7 
Steve and Judy Hutchinson thank God for a great start to the new Families Together holiday for all ages in July; families loved the family worship, the woodcrafts, being in a natural environment and relaxing together in beautiful Great Wood; many want to come back this year. Pray for Steve and Judy as they plan. 

Saturday 8 
Pray for the Leadership Team as they meet next Thursday, asking especially that, in a time of transition, they may have wisdom and be able to steer the movement in the direction that God leads.

Keep praying!
