Prayer Focus

Each month we will endeavour to share a bit more detail about a young person or adult that we are supporting and ask you to pray for them as much as possible throughout the month. Names are changed to maintain confidentiality.

Jenny, a friend from Breakfast Club, was recently informed by her landlord that he had decided to put the house (which she had been renting for over ten years) on the market. Jenny now found herself showing potential buyers around the building which she had decorated from top to bottom, making it a family home. It’s a five bedroom house and Jenny, having a large family, would require a similar size property to move into; a tall ask considering virtually all the five bedroom houses in our area have been turned into flats. We told Jenny we would pray and encouraged her to pray for a miracle herself. We would all ask God that the landlord would change his mind and take the house off the market. Two months in and the landlord has done exactly that and Jenny has been able to sign a new contract!

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.
