Prayers – week beginning 9th July 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 9
Please pray for the Bible Youth Camp which Scripture Union Chad are running this month, especially as it takes place against a background of social unrest affecting the whole country with striking officials, and closed schools and clinics.

Monday 10
Family Fun events are planned across the summer in the South East Region aiming to encourage and equip churches to reach out to The 95 in their communities. Please pray for a good level of involvement and for followon events to help families continue to explore faith.

Tuesday 11
Shine in Schools will be running in November encouraging Christian young people to be signposts to Jesus for their friends. Pray that those planning it will find ways to help young people catch a vision for ways God can use them in school. See shineinschools.com

Wednesday 12
More young people than ever from Byker attended SU holidays last year. This year, Local Mission Partner MINE hope to see even more young people getting excited about prayer and learning about Jesus. Pray for wisdom in nurturing those who are too old to be campers but are not sure about leading.

Thursday 13
Local Mission Partner, Brentwood Schools Christian Worker Trust are looking to expand the team to meet the demand from schools for various activities including prayer spaces and lunchtime clubs. Pray that the right people will be forthcoming.

Friday 14
Pray for Graham Bell, Susannah Quinn and Andy Evans as they process holiday and mission team applications and DBS clearance, enabling volunteers to serve on residential activities and missions during the summer.

Saturday 15
Please pray for a good turnout today at X:site Keighley and that many children would be inspired to bring friends and to book on SU holidays this summer, especially X:site National and Glenbrook Adventure.
