Prayer diary

25 August — 31 August

UGBB Burkina Faso is pleased to be hosting the West Africa Missionary Conference (CMAO) from 21-31 August. The theme will be ‘how to inherit eternal life’. Please pray that students will be deeply changed and moved to action by this event.

1 September — 7 September

Students from across the MENA region gather for the Regional Student Conference in Egypt from 25 August – 2 September. Pray that these often isolated believers would be blessed by the Christian fellowship at the event and equipped to stand firm in their faith when they return home.

8 September — 14 September

Two student ministry interns start work in a Central Asian country this September. Praise God for his provision in this country so in need of staff! Please pray for them and other short-term staff in IFES movements throughout Europe and Eurasia, that they will make quick adjustments to the culture and be an encouragement and help to staff already in student ministry.

15 September — 21 September

GBU Portugal is holding its national student conference from 18-21 September. Please pray for God’s blessing on this event – for those who are speaking and leading seminars as well as for lasting changes in the lives of those who attend.

22 September — 28 September

It is the start of the new academic year in many universities in the northern hemisphere. This brings challenges and opportunities in equal measure, as students graduate and new students arrive. Please pray especially for outreach programmes to new students and for student leadership committees who are receiving new members.
