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.
Iceland, a small, island country in between Greenland, the UK and Norway is home to just over 329,000 people. A large percentage of them are Christians (90.6%) and 3.8% are evangelicals. As with many other countries a large chunk of the believers that lack spiritual vitality and most of the people who claim to be Christians do not even attend church. . The bright spot in Iceland is that the evangelical population has a annual growth of 2.6%.
Join me in praying for Iceland:
For the active believers to continue to grow and reach out to others.
For the short-term discipleship ministry partnership between the Pentecostal church and World horizons to flourish.
For Icelanders to get excited about going to church again, and not just going to church but living out the faith too.
