Praying 4

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!

Tuesday 7 April

Pray for the Bible Education by Extension Project in Macedonia, a project initiated by Ivan Grozdanov. He has written the first 6 booklets of a set of 12. Over 150 people have already requested and received a copy of one or more booklets. Ivan’s desire is that small Bible study groups be formed in many places in Macedonia. He would value your prayers in finding suitable mentors to support this work.

Wednesday 8 April

Pray for Aco Mitev serving in Bitola, Macedonia. Permission has been granted for a church building to be erected and Aco is keen to commence this work. They have several new believers now and this is a great encouragement to them.

Thursday 9 April

Remember the Good News Church in Skopje, pastored by Marko Grozdanov. May the church prove to be an effective witness in a country where it is estimated there are fewer than 3,000 evangelical believers.

Continue to pray for the volatile situation in east Ukraine. Ask for God’s protection, wisdom and strength for the pastors who are remaining in conflict areas and continuing to serve the people.

“Jesus came and stood in the midst, and said to them, 'Peace be with you” John 20v19. We rejoice with all our brothers and sisters that we serve a risen, ascended Lord. As a Mission, we give thanks to God for all He has provided for us through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Pray for Andrew Coleclough and his wife Jan living in Northwich, Cheshire. Andrew represents the Mission in the north of England and north Wales. May he know great encouragement as he serves the Lord in deputation ministry and teaches in mission schools.

Tuesday 14 April

SGA plans to establish a new mission school for Hungarians, in Northern Serbia in June. Pray that this will come to fruition and that committed students will enrol for this course.

Wednesday 15 April

As part of SGA’s 70th anniversary celebrations, Mark Foster is leading a group of pastors from the UK and Ireland to Moldova, departing today. Pray that this will be of benefit to those involved and give them a deeper insight into the work and ministry of SGA in that country.

Thursday 16 April

Pray for Chris Menzfeld and his wife Karen living in Cullompton, Devon. Chris represents the Mission in south west England, south Wales and the Channel Islands. May church fellowships be greatly encouraged through Chris’s deputation ministry.

Friday 17 April

“Weeping angels stood confounded, to behold their maker thus; And can we remain unwounded, when we know 'twas all for us?” Easter is celebrated this weekend in Orthodox countries. Pray that during their Good Friday many in EE and C. Asia will recognise all that was done for them on the cross and turn from their empty lives to the Saviour who died for them.
