Monday 31st July – Saturday 5th August
Newday 

Pray this week for immeasurably more than we can ever imagine as Holy Spirit empowers and reveals Himself to these young (and older) people in ways they’ve never encountered before – that they will come away from this week, emboldened and raring to go out into the world and preach the Good News of Jesus Christ!
