Thank you so much for praying with us in June. It’s encouraging to know you’re thinking of us and supporting us in prayer. More importantly, like us, you care about young people, their wellbeing and their place in the life of the church.

This month we are thinking of young people who are in the final weeks of their GCSE and A Level exams. If you’ve been the parent of a teenager, you’ll know the pressure of exam time, (both for you and the young person!). But exam time will be coming to an end soon - and the summer holidays beckons!

Let’s pray this month for young people throughout the UK, facing their exams - whether they are highly motivated and find it all a bit of a breeze, or whether the experience is much tougher, for whatever reason. Panic attacks, anxiety and self-harm are all common at this time of year for young people. And perhaps I should also mention the results days - which will add a bit of extra pressure later in August.

‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.’ Jesus told his disciples in John 14. We pray young people would know that same peace that Jesus still brings to the world in 2023.
