Prayers – week beginning 30th December

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 30 
Pray for SU in the Netherlands as they launch new versions of Christianity Explored, Discipleship Explored and Life Explored, and Samen Ontdekken for all ages. 

Monday 31 
Pray for the New Year holidays, Breakthrough (years 10–13) and Genesis (years 9–13) both of which started yesterday. Pray that the young people who attend will be inspired to make a good start to the New Year with Jesus at the centre. 

Tuesday 1
Please pray for Jen Babb, Kathy Brooks and Dan McNamara as they plan the fundraising programme for the coming year and look for ways to encourage more people to support the ministry of Scripture Union. 

Wednesday 2 
Local mission partner Southport and Area Schools Worker Trust have relied on interns for many years, but are taking a break for a year in order to encourage volunteers from local churches to become more involved. Please pray that many volunteers will come forward and that they can empower local churches to connect with young people. 

Thursday 3 
Pray for Dave Parsons as he works on the outline 2019/20 budget that will be presented to the board on 24 January. Pray that wise decisions will be made and that SU may know God’s will as to how we use the resources that he has given us. 

Friday 4 
Local mission partner Brentwood Schools Christian Worker Trust ask us to pray for schools worker Mary Thomas as she prepares lessons on anxiety for use with Year 10 students. Pray that these will help students gain a new perspective and find ways of coping. 

Saturday 5 
Give thanks for the faithful service of Tim Hastie-Smith (as National Director) and David Thorpe (as Managing Director) and for the enormous contribution they have made to the life of the movement. Pray for them as they prepare to move on, that God will enable them to find new avenues of service.

Keep praying!
