We pray for young people growing up in Lambeth and across London who are facing great opportunities but also many challenges.
We ask especially for strength to those in danger of being caught up in knife crime and violence and those who live in fear even when making regular journeys to school or church.
We thank God for the contribution that young people make to the life of our churches – for their faith and optimism and for their hope for the future.
We pray for the various initiatives which are enabling young people to be heard, grow in confidence and become experienced in advocacy, leadership and community building.
PLEASE PRAY FOR:
1. The circuit’s 60/40 project which we run in partnership with the Ascension Trust which reaches out to young people in the circuit and also across the borough
2. For the Community Land Trust project in Lambeth which seeks to provide 27 genuinely affordable homes for local people and for our circuit’s wider involvement in Lambeth Citizens.
3. For our talks with the Clapham Circuit and our hopes and dreams to be one circuit across the whole of the wonderful borough of Lambeth
