Please pray:

  • Give thanks for the local churches which are partnering with SU to run Missions this Summer.  Give thanks for local churches which are now leading their own events after several years partnering with SU, and for those new events which are beginning this Summer.  Pray for many young people to respond to the invitation to join the fun at these events.
  • Pray for Missions where several local churches are working together, that there will be a real sense of unity in the teams and a common purpose going forward. Give thanks for the variety of ages and gifts that come together to make up a Mission team. Pray that each person would grow in faith and confidence as they experience the body of Christ working together.  Pray that these events would be significant in the development of the churches involved.  Pray for lots of opportunities to interact with parents and for wisdom on how to continue to build on relationships formed through the week of Mission.  Pray for many to be receptive to invitations to weekly kids’ clubs, Messy Church or other initiatives through the year.
  • Give thanks for the partnership with Circle and the Prison Fellowship which enables young people whose families have been affected by imprisonment to attend a holiday.  Pray that the young people will be able to settle well at their event and experience God’s love expressed in the care and support of the leaders.
  • Pray for those who have been part of the trip to Rwanda as their time away comes to an end.  Give thanks for all they have experienced and pray that they will have time and opportunity to reflect on all that they have learnt.  Pray for their official review event which takes place on Saturday 26th August.
    • Alan Scott will be leading an event for the first time.  Pray for a good working relationship with ML Stone as co-leader and with the rest of the team.  Give thanks for the young people that Alan works with regularly in his local church who will be attending the event.  John and Sarah Wadsworth also lead an event for the first time.  Pray for them as they take over leading with an established team and for those who replace them in the role of ATL.  Give thanks that many young people return to this event year on year with leaders from groups they attend locally.  Pray that Alan, John and Sarah, and all others who serve in the role of TL, will know God’s wisdom and guidance in all the decisions they have to make, his love for those in their care, his patience when dealing with challenging situations, and his leading when delegating tasks to others and supporting them as they develop their gifts.  Pray that they would know God’s presence and renewing strength each day as they take on this responsibility.
