Earlier this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin banned evangelism outside of churches, legally preventing Christians from sharing the Gospel outside their place of worship. This paints a grim picture for reaching people in this country and connecting them to a church.
However, we are “convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8: 38-39)
Today, we ask you to take some time and lift up the country of Russia.
PRAY for God to touch the hearts of those in power
PRAY for the church and the persecution they face
PRAY for those who search for spiritual answers like Yelena, who recently wrote:
"You"know, I’ve followed your advice and began every day to thank God for the little I have, for the difficulties but to do that consciously, although I had also thanked God from my heart before, but now it's different...In my heart, there are still some strongholds, but I believe that with the help of the Lord I will be able to overcome them.”
Thank you for faithfully praying for people like Yelena.
With prayer, we are more than conquerors.
