Hull Youth For Christ
Prayer Requests

January 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.

No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.
Philippians 3:13-14

Please pray for:

The whole team. That they may recieve much needed rest and refreshment after what has been a very difficult and challenging term.

The team members attending the YFC Staff Conference. May they be encouraged and inspired, but also have the opportunity to inspire others by sharing some of the important things we are learning here.

The two new possible residents in Matt's House. Please pray as they settle in. Also that we all may discern whether they are the right fit for the house.

Inspiration and vision for the Tuesday morning parents group as we consider ideas and activities to move that group forward in the new year.

All the young people we will be taking to the Camp Young Leaders Weekend (19th-21st).

Give thanks for:

God's generous financial provision throughout 2017. In a year we budgeted to make a significant deficit we thank God for all those that gave so charitably to partner us in our work here on the Boulevard.

All the opportunities we had in December to gather our community together and not only celebrate and enjoy each other's company, but to remember together the incredible act of God as he came in person to irreversibly bring hope and restoration.

Prayer Focus

Prayer for the new year

Bringer of gifts, fill me with gratitude this year: Gratitude of heart that I might see the gifts of another. Gratitude of mouth that I might sing their praises. Gratitude of spirit that I might recognise the blessings you have brought me. Gratitude of humour as I perceive the playfulness of your giving. Gratitude of eyes that I might deeply draw on the wonders of your created world and know my part in it’s family. Gratitude of open hands for all that you will place in them this year. Gratitude of memory for my story which you have covered with tenderness and mercy. Gratitude of feet for every step I will take this year is a gift.

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.
