26 November – 2 December
One of the most exciting events of the year in Belfast is the city–wide carol service on 8 December. We hope to see many hundreds of students across Belfast come and hear the gospel. Pray that the CUs across Belfast will unite together behind this vision and that CU students will be bold in their invitations.
Pray for CU committees as they take time to look back at the semester and to solidify plans for the next semester. Pray that through the end–of–semester tiredness they would know God’s faithfulness and not grow weary but lean on him and trust in his strength to carry them next semester again!
God, You are good, and Your steadfast love endures forever! Even in the hardest seasons, I always have a reason to worship You.
Thank You for giving me victory and abundant life in Jesus Christ! Although I don’t deserve it, You shower me with unconditional love and forgiveness.
And so no matter what the future may hold, I will shout for joy because You are with me. You comfort me and bless me in the presence of my enemies. Nothing compares to You and no weapon can stand against You. In all things, I am more than a conqueror through You!
Be glorified through me, God. Let the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart bless Your name.
I want my life to bring You praise.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
