So today’s prayer Monday is going to be a little different than my other ones. I started language school today and am in a group of 17 people who come from 12 different countries. Here is what I would like to do. I want to highlight each of the countries and ask for prayers for each country and for each person in my class from that country. Here are the countries and the number of people representing that country.
Kosovo – 1
Russia – 1
Spain – 4
Portugal – 1
Ukraine – 1
China – 1
Turkey – 2
Italy – 2
USA – me!
Romania – 1
Brazil – 1
Greece – 1
If you have a second or two please pray for these countries and these people. Wouldn’t it be awesome if I be a light to them even though the only language we share is the language we are learning?
Today will be a continuation of of my planned blogs and prayers through Europe. Today takes us to Kosovo.
In 1999 Kosovo was the site of an ethnic cleansing where over 1.5 million were killed or displaced. From 1999 to 2008 Kosovo became a UN protectorate until it officially became independent from Serbia. Kosovar Albanians are mostly Muslim. In fact to be Albanian is almost to be Muslim so there are few Christians living within Kosovo. Because of many years of feeling helpless Christianity is become more attractive to the Kosovar Albanians and since 1999 the number of evangelical fellowships has increased from 6 to over 30.
Please pray for:
Development projects in villages to result in transformed communities and transformed lives for Christ.
Young believers to stand firm in their new-found faith against possible pressure from their parents.
Increased unity and humility among the evangelical fellowships.
