Pray with Agapé
Our national leaders will be meeting for a day together on 29 November to plan and pray. Please pray this gathering would encourage them, and provide space for them to continue to grow and be fruitful as leaders.
Some of our Agapé Student Life societies will host Thanksgiving themed events to coincide with the American holiday on 23 November. Please pray that God would use these events to foster a deeper sense of thankfulness in students’ lives that cause many to consider all that God has done for them.
Please pray for our London team, that they would encourage students to “be self controlled, setting them an example by doing what is good, showing integrity, seriousness and soundness of speech that cannot be condemned”. (Titus 2:6-8a)
Refugee Life event
Agapé Refugee Life (formerly First Acts) work with refugees and asylum seekers in the UK. They are holding a day event in Manchester on 18 November. The event, run in Farsi, will be attended by a mixture of Christians and non-Christians. Please pray that God would speak to each person who attends and many would take steps towards following Jesus.
Our Agapé Student Life teams will be encouraging students in November to ‘GO’ on a Global Project next year to Malta, Portugal or Russia. Please pray for students to be excited by the vision of serving on an overseas mission project and for God to prompt many to sign up to go.
Middle of term
Please pray for Agapé Student Life societies who are in the middle of the Autumn term. Pray they’d have wisdom in how to reach students with the gospel, and for Christian students to have opportunities and boldness to witness to their friends.
Our Newcastle Student Life team run a ‘Hub’ night every Thursday where they share food together and have a discussion on a big issue. Please pray for good relationships to grow through these nights and for opportunities to engage on the deeper questions of life.
Please pray for the Agapé Student Life society at Anglia Ruskin (Cambridge) as they go on a weekend away from 11-12 November. Pray this would be a great time of deepening relationships with each other and with God.
The latest edition of Agapé’s MOVE Magazine is out at the start of November. This issue is titled ‘Reconciling all things’. Please pray that the contents of the magazine would encourage, equip and inspire people in their faith and witness.
Please pray for our Communications, HR and Operations team who are going away on retreat from 8-10 November. Pray they’d connect well with one another and with God, and feel refreshed by the time away.
Please pray for all those who have heard the gospel in recent months. Ask God to prompt them to think about what they heard and choose to look further into what it means to follow Jesus.
Our Agapé Student Life society in Birmingham regularly hand out hot tea and biscuits outside some of the student nightclubs. Please pray for safety for students as they serve and for opportunities to build friendships and be a witness through this outreach.
