A Christian woman was dismissed from her job teaching Russian at a national university after school officials learned of her faith.

Vera, a single mother who is raising her children without family support, had hoped that her part-time job teaching Russian would eventually develop into a full-time position. She was a good teacher, and her students liked her. But after fewer than six months on the job, she was told that the university could not allow a church member in her position, especially since she was teaching many foreign students from surrounding countries.

Vera was told to either give up her church membership or resign, so she chose to leave her job.

  • Thank the Lord for Vera’s faithful testimony. Pray it may be used by God to bring spiritual blessing to Vera, her family and other believers.
  • Pray that she will find another job so she can continue supporting her family.
  • Pray that in the meantime, she will receive much comfort, care, support and encouragement from other local believers.

God and Father of the Lord Jesus Christ, thank you for the witness and faith of our sister and your child Vera. Bless her endeavours as she seeks to provide for her children and find another job. Strengthen the local community of faith to support and encourage Vera and use this trial and adversity to further the momentous message of the Gospel of God. May your global mission be evident to all in Central Asia as your people testify to your Son and his saving work and the judgement to come.

Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil or the evil one satan.
