Can you believe it, another exciting summer of Sports Plus is just around the corner?! With prayer being at the heart of everything that we do, and as we are totally dependent on God for all things, we want to bring Sports Plus before God and we'd love for you to join us in praying for the summer ahead. Here are a few pointers to fuel your prayers, which you can also download and print out in a handy PDF.

 

'Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him'

                                              Matthew 2 v 2

 

Pray that as young people and leaders hear the gospel truth their hearts would burn with a deep desire to worship King Jesus.
