Lady Praying Looking Up

We are grateful to those who faithfully pray for the work of SGA - churches, prayer groups and individuals - throughout the UK, Ireland and beyond. We are always concerned to see our ‘prayer base’ strengthened.

Much prayer - much power; little prayer - little power!

Thursday 1 October

Pray for all SGA sponsored missionaries and many believers as they distribute God’s Word alongside practical help and food parcels to those in great need and far from God. May antagonistic hearts be turned towards God in saving faith.

Friday 2 October

Staff member Clive Langston, along with his wife Margaret and family serve the Lord in Worthing. Pray for Clive as he seeks to encourage churches in south east England and develop good relationships with new churches.

Saturday 3 October

Due to Covid-19 pandemic staff members have had to adapt to many changes and have been deeply disappointed as they were unable to personally visit churches in the UK and Ireland. Pray that a growing number of opportunities will be available for deputation and that the staff will be effective in communicating the needs and bringing encouragement to many congregations.

Pray that many churches will be planted in the vast, remote regions of FE Russia. During this time of hardship, may God continue to be glorified and the SGA sponsored missionaries encouraged.

Tuesday 6 October

Substantial funds were sent out to help with Covid-19 relief in FE Russia. Pray that those who received gifts of food will have seen the love of God in action and respond in saving faith in Jesus Christ.

Wednesday 7 October

Grigory Andreyanov, one of SGA’s 70th Anniversary sponsored missionaries in FE Russia, has commenced a sports ministry among disabled people. He writes, “Following a recent sports competition many athletes for the first time in their lives crossed the threshold of the House of Prayer, where they heard the Good News about Christ.”

Thursday 8 October

Artyom ZEMLYANOV and his wife, new SGA supported missionaries in FE Russia, opened a creative workshop to reach teenagers who struggle with difficult life situations. This ministry has now developed to include student meetings. Pray for this work and for the youth outreach team “Daybreak”. Praise God that ‘Daybreak’ members come to the Lord through the youth ministry.

Saturday 10 October

Pray for Field Director Mark Foster, wife Margaret and family living in the Wirral. Especially remember Mark as he discusses new approaches with mission school directors to enable teaching programmes to continue.
