SGA Prayer and Praise Items
22—Pray for more Christian literature in the Georgian language, as more are coming to Christ and growing in their walk. Intercede especially for Georgian evangelical leader Dr. Levan Akhalmosulishvili, who has had some significant health challenges.
23—We have a number of students at our Israel College of the Bible program who serve as directors of drug and alcohol rehab centers. Several other students are doing practicum teaching in rehab centers. And five students are teaching regularly on TV. Please pray that God will richly bless the ministries of all our students.
24—Pray for the security of believers in Azerbaijan, as Islam is dominant in most of the country, and oppression of the church has been severe.
25—Please pray for ongoing ministry to the homeless and so-called “social orphans” in Uzbekistan. May it have a great impact on these heartbroken children, their caregivers and even their lost, dysfunctional families.
26—The oppression in Central Asia grieves our hearts, yet the believers we serve proclaim the Gospel with great joy despite the difficulties. Please pray regularly for them.
27—Pray for SGA’s four new email subscriptions designed to keep our partners better informed about developments and ministry needs across the CIS. As new partners sign up via our website, we pray that the result will be more Russian-speaking people hearing the Gospel!
28—We thank God for SGA’s senior missionaries—Ruth Deyneka—Erdel, Rose Leonovich, Andrew Semenchuk, and Florence Daneliuk as they continue to serve our Lord in every opportunity He provides. May the Lord encourage their hearts today!
29—Pray for Dr. Allan Vincent, director of SGA/Canada, and his staff as they work to share with Canadian churches what God is doing throughout the CIS, and how they can help.
30—Please remember the family of Louetta Provost, wife of SGA president Bob Provost, in prayer. Louetta’s brother Cecil Long went to be with the Lord earlier this year after a battle with cancer. May the Lord bring ongoing comfort in knowing that Cecil is with the Lord he served and loved.
31—Reflection: We close July with this reminder from the Apostle John ... God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4:24). May He draw us to Himself closer than ever in the coming days.
