Prayers – week beginning 2nd 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 2
Last month SU in French-speaking Canada visited food banks, inviting children from families struggling financially to a summer camp. Pray that many will come and be ready to receive the gospel. Pray also for generous donors to sponsor them.

Monday 3
Pray that as Local Mission Partner, Sevenoaks Area Youth Trust advertise for a part-time youth worker, the right person with the appropriate gifts to share Jesus with The 95 will come forward.

Tuesday 4
Local Mission Partner Gobaith Môn (Anglesey) prepares breakfast for an entire student body every Monday and Tuesday, showing students the love of God. Students have been more attentive during school and more receptive to assemblies led by the team.

Wednesday 5
In order to help the churches reach The 95 we are creating a new suite of online resources. Pray that this new online resource centre will be a means of bringing many to Jesus.

Thursday 6
Thank God for the commitment of long-term staff. Maureen Okwara has worked in the finance team for ten years and on her sabbatical this summer is taking her three young children home to Nigeria for the first time. Pray that this will be a time of refreshment for her. Pray for other staff taking holidays during the summer

Friday 7
The SOLID Festival, run in partnership with Urban Saints, YFC, Red Balloon Family and Chelmsford Diocese, provides a weekend away for children and young people, with a wide range of activities and the chance to meet with God in new ways. Pray that many will do just that.

Saturday 8
Today the North West team, with Preston Youth for Christ and local churches, are running Xcel, an event for 11- to 14-year-olds from local schools. Pray that as they explore faith in the light of the issues they face, they will come to know the good news of Jesus.
