More Spiritual Needs From Russia

Thank you for your prayers - there was a great meeting at St. Kosma and Damian Church on Sunday. 120 people from different churches came to learn more about their family history and healing generational sins and curses. So many families in Russia suffer with trauma from the Bolsheviks. 

Please continue praying for this program, there have been some spiritual attacks. 

Ephesians 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 

14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. 19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.

The Bolsheviks were evil, but behind them are spirits so evil, destructive and malevolent that we cannot begin to imagine their hateful power. 

Only prayer will succeed in overcoming evil so please pray. 

By the way, our friends are the only Evangelical Ministry in Russia that work with all denominations, including the Orthodox Church.
