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 4
Glenn Coombs (SU Global team) will be leading the SUPA Serve Teen Leadership Mission running KidsGames in partnership with SU Northern Territory in Australia, June 23–30. Pray for his preparation and that many young people will come to know the love of Jesus.

Monday 5
Give thanks to God for the How can they hear? Conference in March, where staff and Local Mission Partners celebrated 150 years of SU Ministry and committed themselves to sharing the good news of Jesus with the 95% of children and young people not regularly in church.

Tuesday 6
Local Mission Partner re:generation Harrow are taking RE lessons on the life of Jesus this term. Pray that these will encourage pupils to think seriously about the Christian faith. Pray too that they will have opportunities to host more prayer spaces.

Wednesday 7
During the second half of this term, Jo-Ann Gaunt of Local Mission Partner Impact in Bedford will lead ‘In the Footsteps of Bunyan’. Children visit the Bunyan Museum and walk around Bedford finishing in the Bunyan Church. Pray that through exploring the life of Bunyan, children will discover something of Bunyan’s Lord.

Thursday 8
Some of the South West team will be at the Royal Cornwall Show over the next three days to promote Guardians of Ancora. Pray that many children will be enthused, will download the game and will discover more about Jesus.

Friday 9
Over the next two months many will be doing It’s Your Move-related activities. Pray that these will help to give children facing the move to secondary education a sense of how Jesus can be involved in their lives.

Saturday 10
X:Site Gloucester takes place today; as well as giving children an opportunity to hear about Jesus in a fun environment, this gives those coming to Lagger camps a chance to meet up and build relationships.
