Prayers – week beginning 7th January 2017

Story type:

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 7
SU Scotland thank God for the ministry of Alltnacriche and Lendrick Muir, their two outdoor residential centres, for an increase in schools using the centres during the week and their popularity for weekends and SU holidays. Recruiting staff is often challenging. Please ask God to fill vacancies for the house and catering teams, and for trainee activity instructors.

Monday 8
Today the planning team meets for the SU annual conference to be held with local mission partners in April. Pray that as they develop the conference theme ‘Sharing the good news’, they will do so in ways that will ultimately lead to new evangelistic initiatives.

Tuesday 9
Local mission partner, ARCHWAY Trust, working in five villages in Northamptonshire, has launched a new initiative as part of The 95 Campaign designed to help families who have been to previous  events to explore faith in greater depth. Pray for Sue Clutterham, Children and Families’ Worker, as she follows up these contacts.

Wednesday 10
Tim Hastie-Smith is in South Africa, Zimbabwe and Lesotho with South Africa National Director, Tony Nzanzah, speaking, preaching and visiting SU England and Wales funded projects. Pray for safe travelling and for meetings that will be of benefit to all.

Thursday 11
Local mission partner, FACCTS (Fleet and Crookham) are running a prayer space for Heatherside Infant School and as a taster for other schools to try out. Pray that other schools would send some pupils and staff along and that this will lead to an expansion of the work.

Friday 12
Please pray for the Content Innovation Team as they consult with the wider Movement about the best new resources to create to help us reach the 95.

Saturday 13
This month the Guardians of Ancora team will be assessing a pilot study of teaching resources for RE. Please pray for all involved and for clear ways forward.
