Looking at the prayer requests in this month’s CPAS Prayer Diary, they remind us of the three main thrusts of the Society’s work: reaching young people with the Gospel through the Ventures and Falcon Camps programme, supporting Patronage churches, and equipping church leaders for mission.
As summer approaches, we’re asked to pray for all the preparations being made for the Falcon Camps, which cater especially for youngsters coming from difficult home circumstances. Pray that the teaching programmes are faithful to the Gospel and are creatively delivered so the truth about Jesus really appeals to the young people.
One of the Society’s Patronage churches is based in Hull city centre and is playing an active role in Hull’s year as UK City of Culture. About 100 cultural events are taking place in the church so its visibility in the city is enormous. Pray for all the opportunities this opens up for the Gospel to be proclaimed.
CPAS is becoming more and more involved in the training of church leaders, both before and after their ordination. On 25th May, it is hosting a symposium on the subject of “Formation for Leadership” to discuss which leadership topics might be most helpfully covered at different stages in the training for the ordained ministry. Pray that all training and teaching will help equip church leaders to demonstrate and share the love of Jesus in communities nationwide.
