Russian youth stoke the prayer furnace

Russia (SGA/MNN) — While Americans were remembering the sacrifice of those
who have died protecting the freedom of the nation, Russian believers were
observing the sacrifice of praise.

Over the weekend, youth from the Union of Evangelical Christians-Baptists
(UECB) took part in a marathon of prayer and fasting starting Friday. Their purpose is for the spiritual
awakening of young generation of Russia. The idea was to use the event to
motivate all youth and all churches to pray for their personal condition
before God, and for the salvation of unbelievers.

What's more, for the first time, they asked North American brothers and
sisters in Christ to participate with them.

The churches are excited because their youth are IN ministry rather than
merely receiving ministry themselves. Pastors and youth leaders are seeing the
vast potential of youth ministry and its impact on their communities,
especially when it is bathed in prayer.

Slavic Gospel Association shares part of an e-mail they received from the

We invite you to join us in intercessory prayer this year! We believe
that God hears the prayers of His children and desires to answer them. We
pray because we long for spiritual awakening of Russia's young generation, and
for Christian youth to have their faith and zeal for the Lord rekindled with
new fire.

Small group leaders were encouraged to meet together with their group members to pray as well.

SGA says it's exciting to see Russian young people determined to be
faithful witnesses to Christ in their generation. Please continue to pray with
them for the salvation of Russia. Our Featured Links section has more on SGA's youth outreach.
