Sunday 3

SU Hong Kong is holding a Bible Fun Day this month to celebrate its 55th anniversary. There will be Bible games, talks, family activities and a short message encouraging Bible reading. Please pray that it will be a time of fun and spiritual encouragement.


Monday 4

Pray for all those returning to school, especially those moving into secondary education. Thank God for the ministry of It’s Your Move, thousands of which were distributed last term. Pray for initiatives to help young people settle in secondary education like Question Point, run by Local Mission Partner CiCS in Calderdale, who plan an informal lunch time activity in a main corridor.


Tuesday 5

SU in Wales are running a tour to coincide with the Queen’s baton relay coming through Wales this week, aiming to take ‘The Games’ into schools in each town where the baton visits. Pray that many children and young people will see something of Jesus.


Wednesday 6

In August the North West team helped to run three new pop-up missions across the Blackpool coast. These ran for three days in partnership with local churches. Pray for the hundreds of children who heard about Jesus, many for the first time that they will go on exploring.


Thursday 7

The regional and residential staff team will be meeting today and tomorrow. Pray for them as they learn from the activities of the summer and as they look for new ways of reaching The 95 with the good news.


Friday 8

Please pray for Guardians of Ancora Clubs that will be starting up in Kent. A number of schools workers are excited about the opportunity and have started speaking with their local schools.


Saturday 9

Pray that at today’s Jubilee Fun Day, staff, Local Mission Partners and volunteers will celebrate God’s goodness in the past and look forward with expectation to what he will do in the future.
