Global Week of Prayer

Each year at the beginning of November, Scripture Union runs a global week of prayer when all around the world staff, volunteers and supporters pray for the work of Scripture Union across more than 120 countries.

In 2020, the Scripture Union Global Prayer Week was held 2-6 November and the theme was 'our Limitless God', taken from Acts 17: 24-28.

We started with a multilingual launch event held on Zoom. It was a time of expressing our dependence on God together as one big family and a testament that prayer builds community.

During the week, SU movements and supporters around the world met in their offices, churches, homes and online to pray for the following: the global Church, the impact of the pandemic on SU, SU and global leadership, for the world to know Jesus and thanksgiving and reliance on God.

We finished the week off with a 24-hour global online prayer event, with 46 different SU movements taking it in turn to lead us in prayer. As Monika, our International Director, said afterwards, “It was an amazing experience to learn of the joys and challenges of our movements and bring them to the throne of God. We laughed, prayed, cried and sang together and got little tasters of cultural diversity and spiritual unity. Global SU fellowship and community at its best. Thank you all.”
