Week 1 - Jo



Thank you, Jesus, for a new academic year. Pray for new staff and students, that they will settle in well to new surroundings.

Please pray for Jo as she spends time in the atrium, that good connections will be made with students and staff.

A new student welfare team of 8 is working together in the same office this year, including Jo. Pray for good relationships and team spirit to enable greater support for students.

Jo would love to see a missional community develop within the college. Please pray for Christian students to capture the vision and want to be part of it.

Please pray for Circle of Friends activity. This is for students in the supported learning community. This group is to help with social interaction, providing a safe place to share and have fun.

Week 2 - SImon

'The Gathering' Youth Event takes place again soon in Ipswich. Please pray for engagement from young people and great collaboration with youth workers.

Simon hopes to complete his studies this month, following some focus on leadership and management. Please pray for final deadlines to be met and for all that he has learnt to be useful for CYM.

As we move towards our 40th Anniversary Celebration, Simon asks for prayers for the final preparations with the venue, bands, and guest speaker. Please pray for all to fall into place in good time!

Please pray today for Simon's family, Annette, Ewan, and Isabella. Their support for CYM, in the background, is often unseen, but greatly appreciated!

Pray today for the Chaplaincy team at East Anglia Children's Hospice, of which Simon is a volunteer member. Please also pray for the families accessing that service currently.

Week 3 - Josh

We reflected on the story of Simeon in the Temple at 'dwell' recently. Like him, we pray in anticipation for what is to come over the coming months, we pray for more of the Holv Spirit in all we do.

This time of year is the usual point for Josh to explore new ideas, rest and catch up with people. We pray that it's a fruitful time for him.

Please pray for the time Beth and Josh can enjoy together after many hours apart over the last few months with Josh's campsite commitments. We ask that God would bless their marriage.

We pray for the times Josh takes himself away to be with God in seeking His will for his life and ministry and the campsite.

As Christmas comes closer into view, we marvel at the wonder and awe we expect to experience. Thank God for His everlasting presence with us and His continued blessing over His Kingdom.

Week 4 - Trustees

We thank God today for our Trustee team. They give many hours each quarter to praying, reflecting and decision-making. We're grateful for them!

Thank God today for two new people considering becoming Trustees. They may even have been appointed by the time you are praying this!

Pray today for Graham, Mandy and Matt and thank Him for all that they give to CYM, whilst juggling busy lives.

Pray for Tristan and Chris today. They have joined our team in recent years and brought experience and wisdom to our work. We're grateful for all that they bring.

Our regular prayer at Trustee meetings is for God to guide our work. We pray today for our Trustees and their discernment as they seek God's will for CYM.
