Norway, a country of almost 5 million people is one of four Scandinavian countries. The vast majority of Norwegians are affiliated with the Christian church (91%) and it has one of the larger percentages of evangelicals in Europe that I have seen so far while doing Prayer Monday (8.4%). Norway has strong mission-sending traditions and lively mission vision today. Pentecostals and independent mission organizations within the Lutheran Church are the core of this sending tradition. Norway remains proportionally one of the top sending nations, even while again focusing on the renewed need for home missions. But a new wave of younger missionaries is called for.
Please pray for:
State-church pastors to be increasingly committed to biblical theology.
A revival among the church.
Norway’s many missionaries to be used by God for amazing things in all the nations they are serving in.
The younger generations to be reached through Christ-centered ministries.
