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 6
A team is heading to Rwanda for a new sports mission initiative involving SU England and Wales, SU Rwanda, Gloucester Diocese, Bungoma Sports Club in Kenya and the Diocese of Muhabura in Uganda. Pray that churches and agencies will gain a new vision for sports ministry.

Monday 7
Scripture Union in Wales will be promoting Arwyr Ancora at the National Eisteddfod this week and at the Anglesey and Pembrokeshire shows next week. Pray that the Christian presence at these events will make an impact on the 95% outside the church.

Tuesday 8
South East Region are running two camps with the London City Mission: Runways 1 (7–10 August) for children and Runways 2 for young people (12–16 August). Pray that as they engage in a range of activities and explore who Jesus is, he will become real to them.

Wednesday 9
Christians and Sheffield Schools, a Local Mission Partner, aim to develop school chaplaincy in Sheffield by offering a training course for potential chaplains, and providing support and training for existing chaplains. Pray that this will result in better support for young people.

Thursday 10
Pray for holiday and mission teams and especially for those who may be coming to the end of their second week on a mission team. Ask God to give them the physical and emotional strength and for wisdom in sharing Jesus with The 95.

Friday 11
As part of the Jubilee celebrations and The 95 Campaign, a fund has been launched to encourage innovative initiatives in mission to children and young people who have no contact with the church. Pray that many new opportunities will emerge.

Saturday 12
A new Guardians of Ancora holiday starts today and runs until Tuesday. It will translate the game into some real-life adventures for 8- to 11-yearolds. Pray that leaders Tom and Lucy Winn and the team will help children to see the reality of Jesus.
