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!

Sunday 23 February

Pray today for two of our new church planters. A former Muslim, Galym Tolekeey is seeking to bring the Gospel to his own people in Kazakhstan. Pray too for Gennadiy Sedakov planting a new church in the east of Ukraine, close to the war zone. Through providing essential supplies to needy people, he is creating effective ways to evangelize and reach people for Christ.

Monday 24 February

Pray for Chris Menzfeld and his wife Karen living in Devon. Chris represents the Mission in the south west of England, the Channel Islands and south Wales. May he know great encouragement as he shares about the work of SGA.

Tuesday 25 February

New staff appointments have been made in Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. We are thankful to God for His provision of three Regional Co-ordinators - Pastor Oni Mladin, Romania; Pastor Peter Mihalchiuk, Moldova; Pastor Roman Vecherkovsky, Ukraine. Pray that they will settle into their new roles.

Wednesday 26 February

We are thankful to God for all the opportunities to teach and train in mission schools. Pray for wisdom for those who have the oversight of these schools, and for those who so willingly and ably translate for our UK staff.

Pray for him as he settles into his new role and shares about SGA’s ministries.

Saturday 29 February

We continue to uphold before the Lord, the vital work being carried out in FE Russia. Pray for Grigory Andreyanov working in that region and involved in four church plants. The work faces many practical and spiritual challenges, but prayers have already been answered. Pray too for the other four missionaries that SGA is supporting in FE Russia; Avel Dorohov, Konstantin Minaev, Artyom Zemlyanov, and Rostislav Shtompel. Pray for Sunday’s SGA Meetings in Cork & Westside.
