SGA Prayer and Praise Items
24—SGA partners have enabled us to support Bible institute training opportunities for students in Tajikistan. Join us in asking the Lord to open even more doors across Central Asia to train more servants of Christ for fruitful ministry.
25—The Russian regions of Dagestan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, and Kabardino-Balkaria are located in the Caucasus Mountains, and due to Islam’s influence, can be very difficult for ministry. Intercede for SGA-sponsored missionary pastors as they labor there.
26—Please pray in advance for SGA-sponsored Immanuel’s Child Christmas ministries across the CIS—most of which will take place January 7—Russian Christmas. Pray that many churches get involved and that many children would be reached!
27—Please pray for the ministry support staff at SGA’s headquarters in Loves Park, Illinois. Their work goes on behind the scenes, yet is vitally important to our mission’s purpose of serving the Bible-preaching churches across the CIS.
28—Pray for SGA’s board of directors and leadership team today. May the Lord grant them, along with SGA president Bob Provost, great wisdom as they chart our mission’s ministry course in the days ahead.
29—We praise God for our active senior missionaries—Ruth Deyneka Erdel, Andrew Semenchuk, and Florence Daneliuk. Please pray for continued strength and good health as they continue to serve Christ and share the Gospel in every opportunity He grants.
30—Pray for the leadership and staff of SGA’s international offices in New Zealand, Canada, Australia, and the United Kingdom. Pray that God will increase their resources and partnering churches to keep advancing the Gospel in the CIS and Eastern Europe.
31—Reflection: We conclude with King David’s praise of our God and Father ... How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God! And the children of men take refuge in the shadow of Your wings (Psalm 36:7).
