United Kingdom
Galeed House volunteers: Galeed House volunteers have the privilege of building friendships with adults and children from many nations who have settled in Sheffield, UK. Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Somalian, Eritrean, Slovakian-Roma to name a few. The regulars find some of their social, educational and spiritual needs are being met. For example, one of our volunteers has maintained daily contact by phone with an elderly and lonely widow from Pakistan who is desperately lonely in lockdown. Activities have been severely limited by the Covid-19 pandemic. But some contact is maintained through WhatsApp groups, visiting from the street side, and craft activities and postcards sent to the children. Ask God to keep opening the hearts of those who have experienced the love and truth of Jesus through Galeed House volunteers.  (DATIC Trust (Galeed House) - July 2020)

Final year students in UK: Pray for final-year students who face the disappointment of having no graduation or exams, and now look for jobs in an uncertain climate. Pray that they’re reminded of the sovereignty of the Lord. Pray also for the many students who are young in faith, haven’t yet found a church and have returned to unbelieving homes. Let’s pray that they quickly grow in their love of God and can connect with other believers. (UCCF - July 2020)
Wisdom for workers after lockdown
Wisdom for workers after lockdown: As governments across Europe loosen regulations due to the pandemic, please pray for wisdom for our workers. After lockdown many will be anxious to reconnect with others and return to face-to-face ministry where possible. Ask the Lord to give us all discernment as to how this should be handled in each of our unique situations. (European Christian Mission - July 2020)
