Big Prayers!

 

As we look ahead to 2020 and beyond, we want to lift up a few big prayers to the Lord.

 

Sun 27th Professional Tennis.

 

For a vibrant Christian fellowship to be established on the ATP and WTA tours, where players are hungry to get together and read God’s word.

 

Mon 28th Guinness Pro14.

 

Pray for Pete Browne as he continues supporting rugby union players and coaches having been appointed to staff at the end of last season. Pray for open doors to meet those we know to be professing as we look to reach the world of rugby union for Christ.

 

Tue 29th Global Summit.

 

Pray for the Global Summit where sports leaders from around the world will gather to consider together how best to reach the world of sport for Christ. Pray for wisdom and insightful discussion in their meetings.

 

Wed 30th Systems and technology.

 

Praise God for the new website and new database technology which enable us to be more efficient in the ways we work. Pray as we investigate and implement more up-to-date financial systems and enable more detailed reporting.

Pray for planning and preparations for Sports Plus 2020 and, as bookings open in the New Year, that young people would think about inviting their sports friends who do not know Jesus.

Sat 2nd Newcastle upon Tyne.

 

Praise God for Newcastle upon Tyne and our links with churches there who understand and see sportspeople as a missional people group. Pray for the city and area, that many more Christians in sport would be found and would have a passion to see their teammates saved.

 

Sun 3rd UK-wide engagement.

 

As we long to see Christians in every sports club and team in the UK, pray that God would ignite a passion in Christian sportspeople’s hearts to view their sport missionally. Pray that we will be able to equip local churches to support these individuals as they witness.

Pray for the University of Bath events week in February, that many sportspeople would hear about Jesus through it and that God would be saving students in Bath that week.
