Prayer Diary October 28 - November 10

 

28 October - 10 November: England & Wales

Starting with Northern Ireland in 2002, we now have small teams in each of the four home nations. Praise God for His goodness in guiding this expansion. This fortnight, we commit England and Wales in prayer Scotland and Northern Ireland will follow in January.

 

Sun 28th London.

 

Pray that there would be more regular prayer gatherings of sportspeople across churches in London, giving thanks for those groups which already meet monthly. Pray these would lead to more people passionate and equipped to live out and proclaim the gospel amongst unbelieving sportspeople in London.

 

 

 

Mon 29th Bury St Edmunds.

 

A Pray Play Say introductory training session is taking place tonight. Pray that those who attend would find the Colossians 4 framework helpful for life as a Christian in sport, and for planned follow up sessions going in depth on each element of Pray, Play and Say.

 

 

Tue 30th Newcastle.

 

Praise God for the Sports Quiz held on 9th October at St James’ Park, and for the clear and faithful gospel message shared at half-time. Pray for courage for sportspeople to follow up with their guests.

 

 

 

Wed 31st South West Region Clubhouses.

 

Praise God for recent Clubhouse gatherings of sportspeople in Bath and Bristol. Pray that those that came would be boldly living out their faith in their sports clubs and speaking of Jesus. Pray too that those attendees would be able to find more Christian sportspeople.

 

 

 

Thu 1st Nov Abingdon, Oxfordshire.

 

Give thanks for the small group of Christians in Sport meeting to pray for their teammates. Pray more local Christian sportspeople would join the network, and that their combined witness would bear lasting fruit.

 

 

 

Fri 2nd Leyland, Lancashire.

 

Thank God for the 10 members of St Andrew’s Leyland who are involved in club sport. As the winter season hits its peak, pray for opportunities to share life and the gospel with teammates. Pray also for St Andrew’s Sports Life initiative (sporting activity for over 55s) which runs every Monday afternoon in the church hall.

 

 

Sat 3rd Bristol Sports Quiz.

 

Pray for the Sports Quiz taking place in Bristol on Friday 16th November. Pray that many sportspeople who don’t know Jesus would come along with their teammates and that the Holy Spirit would be moving attendees to realise their need for Jesus.

 

 

 

Sun 4th Port Talbot, Neath.

 

Pray for Steve Jones, who moved to Port Talbot in September to lead Riverside Baptist Church. Pray that God would use Steve powerfully to reach sportspeople with the gospel in an area where we don’t know of any Christians in sport.

 

 

 

Mon 5th North Wales.

 

Thank God for the Christian sportspeople found in North Wales over this last year. Pray that they’d build on the training they received and be bold in sharing Jesus across North Wales.

 

 

 

Tue 6th Rhondda.

 

Pray for Dylan Jones and Jack Dunning, two young Christian coaches in Rhondda, as they lead their teams this year. Pray they would have opportunities to share the gospel and lead their squad members to Christ.

 

 

 

Wed 7th West Wales.

 

As we seek to grow this work across the country, pray that God would raise up more female Christians in sport to reach their teammates in West Wales.

 

 

 

Thu 8th Rugby dinner.

 

Next Thursday is a rugby dinner for the Cardiff Met and University teams. Pray that many players would attend, for Chris, James and David inviting, and for those Christian rugby players hosting and being interviewed that they’d be faithful and speak clearly of Jesus.

 

 

 

Fri 9th South Wales.

 

Tonight is the South Wales Sports Quiz at The Swalec Stadium in Cardiff. Pray for Jon Reeves and Tom Hocking hosting and speaking, for boldness bringing guests and hearts to be transformed.

 

 

 

Sat 10th Newport.

 

Thank God for the Clubhouse event held in Newport on 10th September. Please pray that those who attended would be encouraged and equipped as they look to reach the world of sport for Christ in their many clubs and teams across the city.
