Dear Friends,

In 2 Corinthians 4 v 8-9, Paul acknowledged that he was hard-pressed on every side but not crushed. Perplexed and struck down but not in despair. Persecuted but not abandoned. Why? Wonderfully, he goes on to say that we always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. We may feel similarly challenged today, so let us hold onto the hope of the gospel and pray for ourselves, one another, and those in the prayer diary, so that Jesus may be revealed to those who don’t know Him.

Here are topics to help you pray for the world of sport this week:

Sunday 1st November   

Pray for Christian Coaches and Support Staff 

As Covid-19 continues to impact lives, pray for coaching and support staff as they increasingly need to offer pastoral support to those in their care. Pray they may be wise and sensitive as they do this and pray for opportunities to point to the hope in Jesus Christ.

Monday 2nd November   

Prayers for Financial Provision 

At a time of financial uncertainty for many, please pray for others to have capacity to begin or increase regular giving to allow us to draw down the remaining 40% of the Big Match. We estimate 200 more monthly gifts are required.

Tuesday 3rd November   

Prayers for Wales 

Give thanks for partner churches and university groups across Wales. Pray for the staff team seeking to serve and support churches and university group leaders during the national firebreak lockdown. Pray they find creative ways to encourage church and university group members to stay connected with sports friends during this period.

Wednesday 4th November     

Pray for evangelistic opportunities for students  

Pray that in the run-up to Christmas, students would be intentional in engaging their sports friends with the good news of Jesus, whether through Dialogue Dinners (discussion about the Christian faith over a meal) to by inviting friends to one of the many Christian events (online or in-person).

Thursday 5th November   

Pray for Young Performance Athletes (YPAs

Thank God for the regular zoom group calls for 15-17 and 18-23 year olds as well as one for parents and guardians. Praise God for relationships being built through these.

Pray for open doors into places where we don’t currently have a presence, for example; sports academies, performance centres, and schools that focus on sport.

Friday 6th November   

Pray for the Development of Resources  

Pray for wisdom and creativity for the media team to find engaging, innovative ways to connect with those who don’t yet know Christ. Pray for the development of useful resources for Christian sportspeople, young and old, to help them live and speak for Jesus in the world of sport.

Saturday 7th November     

Pray for the UK Interns 

Give thanks that the 10 interns have had the opportunity to shadow senior staff once a month to get a greater understanding of the breadth of the work. Pray as they grow in practical skills, that this will also be reflected in their faith and reliance in Him.
