Please pray: 

  • Many young people come to our events needing a bit of extra support to ensure they have a brilliant experience.  Pray for the youngest children who are possibly away from home for the first time, pray that leaders will be sensitive in helping them cope with any homesickness.  Give thanks that many of our volunteers bring professional experience from their daily work which is helpful in getting alongside young people with additional support needs.  Pray for wisdom for team leaders as they put together dorm lists and groups, pray that each child will be well cared for.  Pray for cooks as they cater for a variety of special dietary requirements, and seek to make sure everyone is well fed. Pray for those leading activities to be sensitive to the wide range of physical abilities and to encourage and challenge young people appropriately.  Pray that young people who are struggling and facing challenging circumstances will feel loved and cared for and supported. Pray for leaders to respond with wisdom and sensitivity when young people share their struggles.
  • Give thanks for senior campers who have been at events over a number of years.  Pray for good opportunities to encourage Christian young people in their discipleship and to help them think through how their faith applies to all aspects of life.  Pray for young people who need faith to become personal, who need encouragement to persevere in faith or challenge to make a decision on all they have heard over the years.  Pray for those who will be helping as junior leaders at some of our Missions, that the experience of being part of the team would strengthen and encourage and challenge their faith.
  • Pray for Jackie Ringan as she leads a group of young people heading to the International Leadership Training event in Ukraine.  The young people will join with folk from other SU movements for a week of training, discipleship and team building, before heading out across Ukraine to be involved in Holidays Clubs and other projects.  Pray for the young people, including our current Gap Year, as they learn and work together with folk from different cultures.  Pray for renewed energy and encouragement for Jackie as she supports the young people.
    • Pray particularly for all the logistics of the handover Saturdays, when there are many events finishing and others beginning.  Pray for staff at the centres as they work hard to turn things around between one event finishing at 10am and another team wanting access to get set up for young people arriving late afternoon.  Give thanks for those who volunteer to drive minibuses, act as travel leaders or supervise arrivals and departures at the bus station.  Pray for travel arrangements to run smoothly and for wisdom for those who will be in the Milton Street office or holding the duty phone and will have to respond to any issues that arise.  Continue to pray for safety in all aspects of events.
