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!

Sunday 6 December

New SGA Project70 supported missionaries, Danko and Ljiljana Malesevic, are serving Christ in Bosnia. They have commenced work on a Christian Rehabilitation Centre where they support drug and alcohol addicts. They have regular church services there too. Please pray for this work among some of the neediest people in society.

Monday 7 December

Project70 sponsored missionary Volodya Chernyshkov, Tajikistan, holds a weekly seminar for training young leaders. He has noticed that the seminars are very effective in spiritual growth. Pray for more young leaders to be trained in ministry.

Tuesday 8 December

Pray for young believers in C. Asia. Young people at school are often beaten up to try to force them to recant their faith. Pray that they will be sustained during these times of persecution, and that their faith will remain strong.

Wednesday 9 December

Project70 sponsored missionary Sulamjon Murodov, Tajikistan, is seeking to buy land for a new Hope Centre in Yavan district where he can continue to serve widows and orphans. As well as providing food, he teaches the youth from the Bible.

Thursday 10 December

Pray for the work of the Independent Bible Correspondence School, supplying Christian correspondence courses to people across C. Asia, who normally would not have access to any form of Christian literature, training, or support. Pray that this will be a special blessing to them.

Friday 11 December

Trans World Radio is supported by SGA, and in particular its regular broadcast “Power in Persecution”. Pray that this will be a spiritual help and comfort to believers who are very often isolated and persecuted in C. Asia.

Saturday 12 December

The work and ministry of Almaty Bible Institute continues. Pray for Alexander Karyakov (Director) as he co-ordinates the programme. He writes that the border with a neighboring country is now open, and that trips are resuming to continue the training of the students of this branch. Pray for their protection during these difficult days.

Marina Tsapkova, a former Moldovan Mission School student is commencing an SGA supported children’s ministry in Khakassia, Russia. Pray for her as she seeks to establish good relationships with young people in camp ministry, Sunday schools and youth ministry.

Tuesday 15 December

Pray for the “Joy of Christmas” boxes that will be distributed to families and children in C. Asia. As well as sweets and toys, the Christmas story is presented in a very visual way. May this be a means of touching young hearts and lives.

Wednesday 16 December

We praise God that some children’s camps and youth ministry were able to take place during the summer and autumn in Slovakia, Poland, and Kazakhstan. Pray that the young people who heard the Word of God, will open their hearts to the Lord.
