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!

Thursday 19 September

Pray for SGA Field Director, Mark Foster, his wife Margaret and family in Bromborough, Wirral. May they experience much of the Lord’s blessing in the coming days. Pray that Mark will know the Lord’s enabling as he plans for future field work and teaches in Mission Schools.

Friday 20 September

Andrew Coleclough and Chris Menzfeld finish their first week of teaching in Almaty. Pray that their strength will be renewed for preaching engagements over the weekend and teaching next week.

Saturday 21 September

Mark Foster and Clive Langston travel to Balti Mission School, MOLDOVA until the 4th October. As well as lectures on the Gospel of John and Pastoral Counselling, there will be twenty-four lectures on Apologetics. May God help and inspire through His Word, to equip these young men and women to serve Him in future ministry, often in quite remote communities in Moldova.

Monday 23 September

Pray for Peter and Renata Pristiak as they minister in Hermanovce. Pray that God will bless the regular preaching of His Word, and also that Peter will be able to maintain his work and witness among the Roma people.

Tuesday 24 September

We thank God for the dedication of Bohuslava Havrilova in Slovakia, as she ministers amongst young women and children. Despite health problems herself she faithfully seeks to bring God’s Word to needy people. She writes ‘Please pray for our need of a church building, so that we have a meeting place for church meetings, Sunday school, youth meetings etc.’.

Wednesday 25 September

Please uphold the believers in Slovakia before the Lord, that they would be protected from attacks and oppression. The Catholic Church has a great hold on people living there and tries to influence them against the Christians.

Thursday 26 September

Gabriel Gajdos has recently been encouraged by five new members joining the fellowship. He has also been able to start a new home group with the aim of teaching new converts. Please pray for his ongoing youth work as he seeks to bring young people into a living relationship with Christ.

Friday 27 September

Viktor Shushkevich in MOLDOVA has launched a Children’s Club. Approximately 30–50 children come from Monday to Saturday, and 20–25 children for Sunday school. Viktor explains: ‘In order to help you better understand our joy, it should be mentioned that until the Children’s Club was launched, there were no children in the church at all.’ Pray for this vital work.

Saturday 28 September

Derek Maxwell travels to the Central Belt of Scotland today until the 9th October. This is an extensive Itinerary, so pray for safety in travel and for God’s blessing to be upon all the meetings. Pray for Mark Foster and Clive Langston as they preach over this weekend in Moldova and prepare for another week of teaching.
