Pray for Bosnia Herzegovina

It is a fact that Bosnia Herzegovina has been established as a country. It will stand before the Lord in the hour of His judgment.

Revelations 14:6 -7 “Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth—to every nation, tribe, tongue, and people— saying with a loud voice, “Fear God and give glory to Him, for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made heaven and earth,...”

Bosnia-Herzegovina has perhaps the most complex, not to say contradictory, political structure of any country in the world, imposed upon it under the terms of the 1995 Dayton Accords.

The presidency of the republic rotates between a Serb, a Bosniak and a Croat. The presidency is responsible for foreign policy, representing Bosnia-Herzegovina abroad and fiscal and economic affairs. The governments of the two entities within the republic are responsible for all other internal matters.

President of Bosnia Herzegovina, Nebojsa Radmanovic
• 61 years old
• He is a Serb by nationality.
• He is married and is a father of two daughters.

1) Let us pray for the President of Bosnia Herzegovina:

a. Lord, we ask you give him wisdom to fulfil the duties before him.
b. Lord, we ask that President Nebojsa Radmanovic be surrounded by wise counsellors.
c. Lord, You know his spiritual condition; we ask that You draw him unto You.

2) Sarajevo, capital of Bosnia, is home to 400,000 people, 95% of whom are nominally Muslim. Let us pray for this city:
a. Lord, this is a city that abides in darkness. Lord, send a light.
- Matthew 4:16
“The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.”

b. Let us pray for Pastor Slavko Hadzic and his family.
- Slavko Hadzic planted a new church in Sarajevo in 2003. After seven years of prayer and hard work, today the church has 25 believers. Despite the challenges they face, Slavko’s church is trying many different ways of showing people God’s love and telling them about what Jesus has done for them. They distribute food parcels, run a free medical clinic and hold a wide variety of outreach events. (Info. Provided by http://www.eurovangelism.org.uk/mainarticles/bosnia10.htm)
c. Let us pray for Pastor Tomislav Dubotovic and his family
- Tomislav Dubotovic is the pastor of the Baptist Church in Sarajevo and he also runs the Bible School in Sarajevo. He told us the church in Bosnia desperately needs a new generation of Bosnian leaders, and he is committed to training them and equipping them to take up the challenge of being a witness in this difficult place.

d. Lord we pray You protect these servants You have planted in Sarajevo.
e. May they daily be renewed in their bodies, souls and spirits.
f. The churches of these servants lack the financial funds to support their pastors. Let us pray for support money to come from abroad to help them until they can stand on their own.

3) Let us lift up the hands of all God’s servants in Bosnia. Help them to stay steadfast in their calling to preach Jesus to the people.

Editor Note: Thanks for praying for me while I was in Romania. Shortly I will be poting a report at http://www.freebalkans.com/Extra1.html
