Prayer Diary, January 2022


Prayer Diary, January 2022

1 – 9 January

Praise God for the Relay Workers this year, for all God has been teaching them as they serve and for the variety of gifts they bring to CUI. Pray for them as they attend their second conference of the year this week, that they would be encouraged as they reflect on the semester that has been and receive encouragement for the semester ahead!

Pray for the Events Week committee in Trinity College Dublin as they plan and prepare for their Events Week in the second week of February. Pray for wisdom and humility and that God would use the Events Week powerfully.

10 – 16 January

Our International Student Ministries Ireland Team is attending the Friends International Conference this week together with colleagues from across the UK & Ireland.  Pray for refreshment, inspiration, and a time to be encouraged in their work with international students in Belfast and Dublin.

Dóchas (NUI Galway) and University of Limerick CU are currently in the midst of organising Events Weeks which is a new endeavour for many students in those CUs. There will be a week in Galway followed by a week in Limerick and all the Relay Workers from CUI will be coming to speak. Pray the students and CUI workers would depend on God and be prayerful throughout it all.

17 – 23 January

Coleraine CU have endeavoured to develop their small groups into missional gospel hubs this year and have been running a series of ‘Go’ nights to invite non–Christian friends along. Pray small group members continue to be welcoming and missional as they build towards an Events Week in week four of this semester.

Pray for Sally in the CUI office as she works with our two sets of auditors (NI and ROI) to complete the audits of both sets of annual accounts for the end of February.

24 – 30 January

Pray for two churches in the Dublin area who would love to restart an international cafe for students. Pray for willing volunteers and pray students would come to know the love and welcome of Jesus through the love and welcome of his people. 

Pray for the Events Week sub–committee in University College Dublin as they too begin to finalise events and speakers for their Events Week in February. Pray for speakers as they prepare and pray the Holy Spirit would be at work in the hearts of all the students who hear the gospel.
