November Pray For Schools - SHINE Week 1


Please pray for SHINE in Schools this month!




Over these first 3 weeks of November we are having a special Pray for Schools prayer focus for SU Groups in schools. 35 schools all over the country have signed up for the exciting SHINE in Schools initiative mentioned in the last Pray for Schools Update. As a reminder, SHINE is all about equipping young people to live for God in secondary school. SU Group members will be watching the first SHINE video in weeks 1 and 2, chatting, praying and planning what they might do in their school in Week 3. See www.shineinschools.com for more information.




In Week 3, SU Groups will be hosting an event in their school where Christianity can be explained perhaps through music, drama, testimony, an invited speaker, or a question panel. Please will you pray for this project?




Pray in general for:


* Creativity and enthusiasm in dreaming up events

* Boldness and courage for pupils inviting their friends

* Favour within the school community

* Encouragement and spiritual growth.

* Those attending the events, that they would be open to what they hear of Jesus.


For those who are in a position to commit to pray every day throughout SHINE (5-23 November), some prayer points are attached for each school day, and they include wider prayer points for SU Groups. If you meet to pray with others, we would ask that you make SHINE a particular prayer focus this month.




I look forward to sharing some stories!




Every blessing
