Russia is the world’s largest country, extending across 9 time zones between the Baltic and the Pacific and lying in two different continents. With a population of over 140 million just under 94 million (67%) claim to be Christian while only just over 1.6 million are evangelical. After the fall of communism there was an influx of Christianity but within recent years it is becoming more difficult for missionaries to get into Russia, let alone stay for longer periods.

Please pray for:

  • The Russian Christians to unite and reach their fellow Russians for Christ.
  • Pray for sustainable, balanced growth that matches quality with quantity.
  • Religious freedom to stay a reality.

Prayer Monday – Language school

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?
