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 9 
Praise God for the best Christmas present anyone could ever have – the wonderful, precious gift of his son Jesus, our Saviour. 

Monday 10 
Give thanks to God that he cares deeply for every single child equally, whatever their circumstances, and wants them to be able to turn to him for love and support. 

Tuesday 11 
Praise God for opening the way for fruitful partnerships with hospital chaplaincy teams, The Trussell Trust and The Prison Fellowship, enabling us to get The First Christmas and its message of hope into the hands of children who so need to hear it. 

Wednesday 12 
Praise God for all those who have supported The First Christmas campaign, either by donating funds to provide free books, or ordering copies to give away to children in their own communities who aren’t part of a church. 

Thursday 13 
Please pray that God will prepare the hearts of all children receiving a copy of The First Christmas, so that they hear its message and hunger to know more. 

Friday 14 
Ask God to provide every child receiving a copy of The First Christmas with further opportunities to learn more about his love. 

Saturday 15 
Give thanks that God spoke to Steve through The First Christmas, prompting him to turn from a life of crime. Pray that its gospel message will reach the hearts of many other parents and their children, as they read it together.

Keep praying!
