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 
After many years of service with SU in Australia, Kenya, Africa Region and the Global Team, Wendy Strachan retired on 31 December. Give thanks for her tireless and faithful service and pray for her as she seeks God’s will for the future. 

Monday 7 
Josh Vallance is a 10:2 trainee dividing his time between the south west region and Scripture Union Western Cape (South Africa). He started in September and leaves for South Africa this month. Pray that he will settle in well in Cape Town and get to grips with their ministry in schools. 

Tuesday 8 
In Milton Keynes, our mission partner Bridgebuilder Trust are taking assemblies in 102 primary and 13 secondary schools this term – the theme for the fi rst half-term is Courage and Anxiety; and for the second, Love. Pray that children and young people from ‘the 95’ will see that God cares. 

Wednesday 9 
Pray for the north west team as they meet this month to plan Beach Life events in Blackpool and other locations across the north west. Ask God to reveal his way. 

Thursday 10 
National Mission Partner Festive asks us to pray that students who have exams or mock exams at this time of year will remain strong in their faith even under the pressure to spend a lot of time studying and the need to perform well. 

Friday 11 
Matthew Richardson is SU’s Digital Promoter, primarily for Guardians of Ancora. Give thanks for Matthew’s many skills and can-do attitude which help the ministry of the app to grow. Pray for energy, patience, creativity and good humour as he tells others about SU’s mission. 

Saturday 12 
On 20 January there will be a celebration evening of praise and worship following on from the Higher Tour that took place in Cambridgeshire in October, including visits to 35 secondary schools across Cambridgeshire, and 3 large-scale evangelistic evenings. Pray for an ongoing impact from this mission.

Keep praying!
