More than anything else, we rely on prayer. Will you join the effort?
Throughout the month of February we are praying for the elite world of sport with our 'Behind Closed Doors' campaign. Sign up below to get these and future prayers sent straight to your inbox, or download Prayer Mate and get them on your phone.
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.
Pray that the resource would be a useful tool that helps Christian sportspeople to speak of, and point teammates to, Christ, holding out the hope of the gospel. Pray that those who have used this resource might be able to encourage others.
Praise God for the prayer partners he has raised up who pray for the work of Christians in Sport. As we meet today at the monthly prayer gathering, may God be glorified as we reflect back on answered prayer and look to the month ahead.
Pray that many more Christian sportspeople, would be bold in inviting their sports friends to Friday’s Big Online Sports Quiz. Give thanks for the many teams that continue to take part and pray for good conversations in follow up to last month’s Christmas event.
We have a cohort of Directors of Football, First Team Managers and Head Coaches in our small weekly gatherings. They have influential roles within their clubs and are always under pressure to ensure winning performances. Pray that they may represent Christ in both word and deed in this intense, public environment.
Pray that Christian sportspeople would not grow weary or lose heart as they face the disappointment of not being able to train, play or interact in the usual ways with teammates. Pray that they might be distinctive in their sport as those who care enough to stay in the lives of their friends.
Praise God for those sportspeople who have joined and heard the gospel the Big Online Quiz and the Big Christmas Event in recent months. Pray that both newcomers, as well as regulars, would continue to engage with the gospel as it is explained online this evening.
As we continue to improve and develop our resources for sportspeople, please pray that the Sports Stadium Kit will help Christian sportsmen and women connect their sport and their faith and will equip them to speak of Jesus amongst their sports friends.
