Each Monday for the next year I will be sharing some data with you all about one country that Greater Europe Mission ministers to in Europe, Asia or Africa. The data I will be getting will be from Operation World. Operation World is an evangelical Christian organization that is concerned about fulfilling the Great Commission. They have compiled information on every country in the world and I want to share it with you so you can be praying for Europe specifically. I will also be using a book put out by Greater Europe Mission called “Prayer for the Nations.” Inside the book it has a guide for each country that makes up Greater Europe. There is much more detail then I will share, but if you want a copy of the book for your own prayers please let me know and I will get you one.
Greece is the country that brought us gyros, the movie 300 and oh yeah Greek gods and all of that historical stuff. Obviously there is so much more than that to Greece, but gyros and 300 are two of my favorite of their contributions.
Greece is a largely Christian country where almost 98% of the country belong to the Greek Orthodox Church, but only about 2% of them regularly attend services. Only about .4% are what we call evangelical Christians. Recently there has been a call to re-evangelize Greeks from within the Orthodox churches.
Please pray for:
A new movement of Orthodox and Evangelical churches to work together to reach their country.
The youth of Greece to continue with their reception of the Gospel.
More missionaries to feel a calling to Greece, a country with surprisingly few missionaries.
