Prayer is a vital part of the life of Scripture Union and our desire to help people of all ages meet God through the Bible and prayer is part of our aim.

We invite supporters and anyone who shares our vision to join us in praying for the ministries of Scripture Union. If you would like to receive our Global Prayer News each month by email please contact us here.

Global Week of Prayer

Each year we run a Global Week of Prayer when we join together to pray for the ministry of Scripture Union around the world.

This year's Global Week of Prayer will be held 6-12 November 2022 and we invite you to be involved in a series of prayer events and activities. The week will be based on the Beatitudes (Matthew 5: 1-12). Each day will have a particular focus and we will also provide ideas for praying with families. The week will start with a short launch broadcast at 5pm (London) on 6 November and culminate in a global 24-hour prayer starting event starting 5pm (London) on 11 November.

The Global Week of Prayer resources will be posted here shortly or can be requested by emailing [email protected]

A Prayer for Ukraine

“Our God and Father
We all are shocked and devastated by the horrendous war in Ukraine.
As a global Scripture Union community, we pray for all the people affected:

for the frightened children, for those who have lost loved ones,
for those who have had to leave their homes.

We pray for families torn apart, for old people who do not want to leave their homes,
for men fearing to be drafted, for women who are carrying the responsibility for a family on the move.

We cry out for your miraculous intervention. We pray for peace and reconciliation.
And we pray for us, the Church, to be salt and light, loving, caring,
spreading words of hope – the hope we have in Jesus.
We pray for our SU team in Ukraine. Some have left the country. Some are staying and serving wherever they can.
We ask for safety, courage, and strength.
Let them, and let us all be servants to a world in need.

Amen.”
