Current prayer points

Pray for

  • the outstanding details to be easily finalised within the schools & with the band.
  • our relationships with the schools to strengthen over this time & for them to see the incredible potential as to having LZ7 at their school.
  • the youth groups & church leaders in Chelmsford to catch the vision of Iluminate in Chelmsford
  • protection (health etc) over the SYM Team & LZ7 as we begin to build up the momentum towards the week.
  • the volunteers who will be offering support during the school day and at the two concerts
  • the final practical arrangements and for the team with extra work loads.
  • finances to continue to flow into SYM to support the event & for volunteers to increase to help at the gig nights.
  • GOD’s incredible presence to be felt through out the Gig nights & at the schools. For the Holy Spirit to move & soften the youth’s heart as they hear the message from LZ7.
  • that many young people will make deep, meaningful and lasting responses to the good news of Jesus. 

Added Monday 22nd January:

  • It’s only 2 weeks to go & the pressure is building, pray for the team as they begin to feel the momentum. A few members are struggling with health issues that have flared up, so prayer for healing over them would be amazing.
  • Online Tickets are due to go on sale in the next 24hours, so prayers that the advertising continues to work & for youth to buy tickets!!
  • Schools are now wanting to finalise more details, so prayers that the logistics can be sorted quickly & easily.
  • ANSWER! One big prayer answer is that we had a room issue with one school, which has been completely sorted & worked out better then planned!!
