Due to the changing landscape around Covid-19, our weekly prayer email or PrayerMate is currently the best way to keep up to date and to pray effectively for the work of Christians in Sport. In due course, we hope to return to a physical prayer diary of daily prayers. In the meantime, please sign up for our weekly prayer email or PrayerMate below.
Stay prayerful for the world of sport with an online prayer gathering.
We know of many Christians competing at the elite level of sport but there are many sports where we are not aware of any believers. Why not choose a sport and pray that the Lord would raise up Christians in that sport and that they in turn would point others to Christ?
Praise God for the 800 people who participated in the February quiz and were able to hear the gospel explained through Two Sides of Sport. Pray that many will view the video again and that minds and hearts would be challenged to consider Christ.
Pray for work being done to add more videos into our key training material to help people in the UK, and around the world think through what it looks like to be a Christian in the world of sport. Pray these resources would present the wonderful truths found in the Bible clearly and well.
Give thanks for the Go Sport Spain online conference that took last week. Give thanks for leaders like Samu and Jessie who helped bring the conference together. Psalm 20 v 7 was the theme of the conference so pray the Lord uses this as a great source of encouragement to all who came.
Give thanks for the opportunity Christian sports people have today to gather online at ‘Clubhouse Scotland’. Pray that many would be encouraged by the evening as they pray for the world of sport in Scotland and look ahead to the opportunity of re-joining sports clubs when restrictions allow.
Please pray that the quiz would engage Christian sportsmen and sportswomen that we have not previously been aware of and that non-Christians would respond positively as they hear the gospel explained. Pray that Christians we know will be bold in inviting their friends.
As decisions will need to be made around Sports Plus 2021, do pray that God would grant wisdom and clarity. Pray that many young people will have the opportunity to explore more about the Christian faith and what it means for Christians to live out their faith in their sport.
Christians in Sport is a UK based charity that aims to reach the world of sport for Christ. We mainly work with sportspeople in competitive and elite sport.
