Prayer for Open the Book (continued)

We're delighted to be celebrating 20 years of Open the Book in 2019! Please join us in giving thanks for God's faithfulness and blessing through this project seeking to share Bible stories with primary school children.

I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1.6 (NRSV)


  • Pray for the storytellers who have taken on extra schools to provide teams as part of our Catholic pilot. Pray that more Catholic churches will come forward to help create Open the Book teams for the many Catholic schools in Hexham and Newcastle Diocese.
  • Praise the Lord that ecumenical teams are coming together and sharing Bible stories with Catholic schools. Pray that the Lord will open doors for Martha, our Regional Training and Development Officer, to inspire more churches to catch God's vision for Bible storytelling in schools.
  • Pray for our new Regional Training and Development Officers, Matt in North London and Kerry in South London. Pray for churches and schools to come forward to start Open the Book teams.


Thank you for praying with us, we deeply value your intercessions on our behalf as we seek to share God's word at home and around the world.
