Birmingham Diamond League
Give thanks for the opportunity that Christian athletes had to compete at the Birmingham Diamond League event yesterday. Pray as they reflect on their results today that their identity would be secure in Christ, and that their eyes would remain fixed on Him as they race this season.
Pray for Christian students in Loughborough as they run an evangelistic volleyball tournament Today. Pray, as Duncan Leese gives a gospel talk at the event, that this would encourage guests to investigate the good news of Jesus for themselves.
Commonwealth Games chaplaincy
Pray God would raise up faithful chaplains for the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham. Pray that Christian chaplains would be accredited to be present in the athlete villages, and that Christians in Sport staff members Jules, Si and Lisa would be among the chaplains selected.
As the French Open continues this week, pray for the group of Christian elite female tennis players who are away from home competing in European events in May and June. Pray that they would find time to read the Bible together and that they might have opportunity to invite other players to join them.
Evangelistic sports tournaments
Pray for Cambridge university students attending the rounders tournament tonight, and for students in London and at Southampton University attending spikeball tournaments tomorrow evening. Pray, as the good news of Jesus is shared at these events, that this would encourage guests to want to find out more about the Christian faith.
International Leadership Training
Pray for the Level 3 participants who have until the end of May to catch up on work set by the programme so far. Pray they would be able to manage their time well to complete work and that they would grow in their understanding as they work through the current topic: ‘How the Bible Shapes Everything.’
Summer Prayer Gathering
Praise God for the opportunity for sportspeople to meet online in June to pray for the world of sport together. Pray that the gatherings would encourage Christian sportspeople as they seek to live for Christ in their world of sport.
