Hull Youth For Christ
Prayer Requests

April 2018



Hull Youth for Christ works in the Boulevard area of West Hull with links to other ministries across the city. Please support our work through prayer to see changes in the lives of young people and their families who face many challenging circumstances.

Jabez was a better man than his brothers, a man of honor. His mother had named him Jabez (Oh, the pain!), saying, “A painful birth! I bore him in great pain!” Jabez prayed to the God of Israel: “Bless me, O bless me! Give me land, large tracts of land. And provide your personal protection—don’t let evil hurt me.” God gave him what he asked.
1 Chronicles 4 v 9-10
Please pray for:

Rich as he returns on the 16th from his trip to China.

Chris and Anna who will be sharing stories at a CMS supper in Harrogate on the 20th.

All the young people who have been given letters inviting them to this year’s camp; for some it will be their first time so pray that they take up the opportunity.

Fiona (a Matt’s House resident) who is in India for 2 weeks. Pray for protection and for the experience to walk with Jesus in a different culture.

Mark who, after much prayer and discussion, has decided not to move in to Matt’s House. Pray that God would guide his next steps.

Lynn Clarke (Head of Chiltern Primary School) who is retiring at the end of the year.

Give thanks for:

The Easter Fair which raised just over £420 and for all parents and volunteers that contributed to making it happen

The cooked breakfast, especially for all the teachers who came and ate with us, and for the fact that we were able to share the love of Jesus through our actions.

Our links with the local churches, the mutual support and ongoing encouragement.

The funding that came in from local churches towards building new raised beds in the Community Garden.

The sleepers for the new raised beds have arrived in time for us to start planting the potatoes.

The opportunity to share the story of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection with Monday Club and Breakfast Club children.

Easter Blessing by Tess Ward

May God of the Easter garden bless in every season of the heart. May God of the mountainside bless in time set apart. May God of the beach bless whether tides ebb or tides flow May God of the upper room bless my doubt that I may know afresh the deep love of Jesus that is stronger than death. May it rise within me as I set forth this day May it fall softly within me as I rest in you this night.

Thank you so much for your prayer support, it is such an encouragement to us and so vital for the work that we do here.
