Sunday 5
SU in Western Australia is excited about a new opportunity with Veta Youth working with the local church and schools to deliver a Certificate in Theology to 15-, 16- and 17-year-olds. Please pray for SUWA, Veta Youth and the students and schools as they begin this exciting journey.

Monday 6
Pray for Holiday Bible Week in Bishop’s Stortford and Vacation Bible School in Saffron Walden organised by local mission partner Stort Valley Schools Trust taking place this week. Both involve a number of churches and will reach upwards of eight hundred children between them.

Pray for the SU team and volunteers who will be involved in sports mission, leading workshops and promoting SU mission at Creation Fest, a family-friendly music and teaching festival in Wadebridge this week.

Wednesday 8
Pray for the preparation being done over the summer months for Shine which will give Christians in schools resources and opportunities to share Jesus with their peers this autumn. Ask God to give creativity, wisdom and sensitivity.

Thursday 9
Last year Beach Life was a huge success on the Fylde Coast. This year the beach comes to Haydock for the next two days. Pray that the families who come will have a great time, that the donkey will behave and that the children will understand something about Jesus and his love for them. Pray too for Beach Life in Bispham and Fleetwood (August 20–22) and Blackpool and Cleveleys (August 23–25).

Friday 10
Pray for Chris Nuttall as he juggles the management of the support functions and aims to develop new and better processes to enable other staff to work more effectively.

Saturday 11
The Felpham Mission will be celebrating their centenary today. Praise God for 100 years of faithful ministry and pray that the celebration service at which Tim Hastie-Smith will be speaking will draw many including those who do not yet know Jesus.
