Lift Up Pastors and Churches

As you pray for specific requests submitted by SGA-supported pastors below, please pray for God’s provision, protection, and encouragement for these faithful servants and their congregations.

The war in Ukraine has taken away so much from the people. But as SGA-supported Pastor Olexander reminds us in a recent ministry report, “God, through SGA and kind, compassionate sponsors, does not leave our people without daily bread.” Please pray for all who receive bread through Olexander’s church outreach. May they respond to the Gospel and look to the Father each day for spiritual food as they open their hearts to Him.

“People thought I was dead, and they took me to the morgue,” says Nelya. Natalia got cancer amid all of the stress and worry. And Kateryna was on the verge of an emotional and physical breakdown. Yet through the generosity and prayers of friends like you—which God uses to equip the churches we serve in Ukraine—hope has come to three displaced Ukrainian women. Please pray for their continued healing and that they will continue to draw closer to the Lord and seek Him first.

Please ask the Lord to draw a displaced Ukrainian woman and her family nearer to Him. Anna fled from the Nova Kakhovka region in Ukraine, where the dam on the Dnieper River was blown up. In her family’s new home, they have received physical and spiritual care from Pastor Andrew’s church. “We believe that God is working with our hearts and soon we will join the church, too,” Anna says. “I really want to and I pray for it and we will glorify God together as a family!”

Praise for a new spiritual family member added to the Kingdom in war-torn Ukraine! SGA-supported Pastor Volodymyr shares: “Natalia repented and praises the Lord that despite the difficult life circumstances she had gone through, God knocked on her heart. This is the best thing that has happened to her in her life, she says! Praise God!”

Please pray for God’s work in the hearts of displaced Ukrainians who are receiving emergency aid and spiritual care through the churches we serve in Ukraine. One pastor shares: “We are able to serve people in need with food and hygiene supplies . . . There are people who are not members of the church, but regularly visit the House of Prayer, and they also say that they find peace and rest in the church.”

A displaced Ukrainian widow named Victoria is grateful for the help of an SGA-supported church in Ukraine. “Thank you to your church for the help,” she said to the pastor. “I will haven’t accepted Christ in my heart, but maybe my journey to the Lord begins here.” Please join us in praying for Victoria today. May God grow in her heart the seeds of the Gospel, and may Victoria place her faith in Jesus Christ!

A prayer request from Pastor Vitaly in Ukraine: “Despite the difficulties of recent times, such as the pandemic, financial crisis, war, and weather disasters, God is still building His church and will not allow the gates of hell to prevail against it. We believe that God will bless those who are generously sowing. On behalf of the local church, we ask you to continue to pray for us as much as possible. May the Lord bless you richly!”

Praise God! He is working through the generosity and prayers of friends like you to rebuild the lives of Andrei, Volodymyr, and Vladyslav in Ukraine. Andrei hasn’t seen his family in a year. Volodymyr doesn’t know if his friends are alive. And Vladyslav lost hope and the will to live. But all three displaced Ukrainians are now receiving spiritual support and physical care from a church we serve.

Let’s keep lifting up SGA-supported Pastors like Danylo and their congregations in war-torn Ukraine. Their outreach to displaced Ukrainians is made possible as God provides through the generosity of friends like you. He is leading our spiritual brothers and sisters to heed Paul’s directive in Romans 2:3 to be like Christ as they . . . regard one another more important than yourselves and look out for the interests of others.

The outreach of a small SGA-supported church in western Ukraine has blessed the lives of displaced Ukrainians like Svetlana, Yana, Oksana and her family, and others. Praise God with us today that after nearly two years of war in Ukraine, His people—including generous friends like you—have not ceased to share the hope of the Gospel and emergency supplies. May God be praised as we continue to see and hear how more hearts are opening to Him in this difficult time!

Pray for Ukraine

War is now raging between Russia and Ukraine. In Ukraine, fathers, husbands, brothers, sons… all men must stay behind to defend their country. And the women, children, and elderly who can escape are fleeing with almost nothing! But getting stuck on roadsides, and with infrastructure damaged or over-used – and even dangerous shelling – they risk death. If they survive the harrowing journey to safety, they must then find shelter. But churches, civic centers, and homes are filling up quickly. Those who stay in Ukraine will surely suffer the most, and the impact on children will be unthinkable. Ukrainians need our urgent, intercessory prayers, and our physical help.
