Pray for Albania

I have two scriptures for Albania.

Romans 15:19 (King James Version)
Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

Luke 19:10 (NKJV)
“…for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.”

Paul says he took the Gospel to Illyricum, the 1st century name for the Albanian area. Jesus, speaking to Zacchaeus, clearly stated His purpose is to seek and save the lost, and Zacchaeus was a corrupt man in Israel.

1) Let us ask the Lord to burden us for the lost of Albania. This country once claimed it was the only true atheist country in the world and still many are in darkness. Lord, please don’t let them perish.

2) Lord, we pray that You would visit and bring salvation to the homes of corrupt men and women of Albania.

3) There are three aspects of missions; Pray, Send and Go. Lord, we pray that You send out harvesters and equip them with all they need to win the Lost of Albania.

4) Not only equip them financially but equip them with Your anointing to do mighty signs and wonders by the power of the Spirit of God. Do it again Lord, let the Albanians see Your power.

5) Lord, send the Holy Spirit to prepare hearts. Take their hearts of stone and turn to hearts of flesh.

6) Let us pray for the Muslims in Albania. Most people that call themselves Muslim there are not devout. When their hearts are softened, let them see Your power Lord.

7) Let us pray for the evangelical churches in Albania. Lord, give the churches favor among the people and the government. Show them how to reach their communities and villages.

8) May Your Spirit Lord rest upon the pastors, confirming Your call upon their lives.

9) Let us pray for the children of Albania. Let love flow out of the churches this coming summer. Lord, give plans and strategies to the churches for children’s camps and youth camps. Lord, release the money needed.

10) Lord, we want to see You visit Albania with Your manifested presence. Let a time of Peace and Joy rest upon Albania.

Pray for Turkey

The Selimiye Mosque is an Ottoman mosque in the city of Edirne, Turkey. The mosque was commissioned by Sultan Selim II and was built by architect Mimar Sinan between 1568 and 1574. It was considered by Sinan to be his masterpiece and is one of the highest achievements of Islamic architecture. The four minarets are the tallest in Turkey.

Edirne’s site and turbulent history were determined by its strategic position on the main route from Asia Minor to the Balkans. After a long and varied career, including being conquered by Constantine in 328 AD, the city was captured by Sultan Murat I in 1362 and served as the capital of the Ottoman empire between 1365 and 1453.

Of Edirne's Christian heritage, there remains two Bulgarian Orthodox churches: Saint George (dating to 1880) and Saints Constantine and Helena (built in 1869).

I felt compelled to pray for this city on the western edge on European Turkey. I searched the Internet for about two hours and could find no mention of an evangelical church in Edirne, Turkey. Present population, 142,000.

1) Let us pray for Edirne (e-DEER-neh):
a. I know the Lord always has a remnant. Lord, we lift up Your likely hidden saints in Edirne. Send someone full of the Holy Spirit to visit them and encourage them.
b. Lord let Your Word be preached, mercy extended and the people of Edirne be given the chance to repent.
c. Let the Christians find each other and unite in a Bible study or Prayer group.
d. Lord, light a fire in Christians of Edirne. I am thinking of the day of Pentecost in Jerusalem, fire fell on them and 3,000 was saved.
e. Lord, You can move through those Bulgarian Orthodox Churches. A priest, full of the Holy Spirit could lead many to You, Lord.

Missionary activities are still considered a national threat despite the existence of Turkish laws guaranteeing citizens the freedom to propagate their faith. Non-Muslim children are victims of discrimination at school.

2) Over the past few years the Lord has raised up some Houses of Prayer in Turkey. Thank You, Lord, for these houses of prayer. As they stand in the gap, we pray You give them breakthrough over demonic spirits in all their regions.

3) Lord, we ask for divine protection over the Christian children in the schools. May they be students that excel in academics and temperament; causing teachers and administrators to take notice.
4) We thank the Lord for Christian television and radio in the Turkish language. May the Lord bless all efforts to broadcast the Gospel into Turkey.

5) Let us pray for Turkish Internet Gospel ministries to be raised up to reach those Turks searching the Internet.

6) Let us pray for the Christians in Turkey. My they be able to live peaceful lives in the mist of Islam’s lies. Lord show them how to be examples of Your good works to their neighbors.
The following is a report from ASLAN International, a ministry reaching out to the poor of Turkey.

God loves Turkey so much that He is sending labors to distribute His Word. Over half a million (500,000) Turkish New Testaments have been distributed! Turkish believers have been trained, and sent out to do evangelism! Four (4) NT book companies have been started! We’ve been arrested, and harassed over 55 times. We’ve done open-air preaching, endured many threats. (2 Cor. 3:5) The Gospel has been preached, and red Turkish NTs have been distributed in Ankara, Istanbul, Diyarbakir, Izmir, Antalya, Adana, Sivas, Samsun, Erzurum, Elazig, Mersin, Eskisehir, Bursa, Gaziantep, Van, etc. all over this nation.

7) Let us pray for ASLAN International ministry. Pray for these dear labors that are living on the edge. Although they are rebuked, spit upon, cursed, and imprisoned, may they have strength within their minds and bodies to continue.
Ro. 8:18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
8) Lord, thank You for the great favor You give them with the people. We pray they also have favor with those in authority.
9) Lord, we pray that signs and wonders would follow them as they boldly go where You lead them to reach the lost and deceived.
They call us the persecuted church of Turkey. And yet, we're the happy church. The reason we're happy is not just because of all the persecution we've been through. We're happy because we're confident in God's love for us, just like His love for YOU. He never lets go, never, ever. (Another report from ASLAN)
10) Satan cannot compete with the joy God gives His servants. Let us pray that the Joy of the Lord would rest upon His servants in Turkey.

Some may ask why we pray for Turkey. Although only 7% of Turkey is on the European side of the Bosporus, that part is still part of the Balkans. Plus you cannot deny the influence Turkey has had on the Balkans. Read more about Turkey, especially the history at:

Pray for Slovenia
Evangelist Nick Vujicic is coming to Slovenia to hold a series of meetings, April 5-9, 2011.
Nick’s favorite saying is, “If God can use a man without arms and legs to be His hands and feet, then He will certainly use any willing heart!” Nick Vujicic was born without arms or legs. His message is that through God’s help you can overcome difficulties in your life and have victory. Take time to read his story and see pictures of hope at the following website: also
The following four prayer request are from an intercessor in Slovenia that is helping with this outreach.
1. Pray for Christians from many churches who are working hard to contact key leaders to help with the costs, logistics, and advertising of the Nick events. Pray for favor for them as they go to governmental, media and business leaders.
2. Pray for governmental leaders to be interested in helping with the Nick Vujicic project especially with the costs of renting large halls. We need them to respond positively in the next few weeks so the halls can be booked.
3. Pray for media to be very interested in spreading the news about Nick's coming.
4. Pray for companies to be willing to support the project financially.
5. Let us pray for a harvest of souls through these five days of crusades in five important cities in Slovenia.
6. Pray that everything would come together as planned, that angels would protect the organizers and that all equipment needed would be in place and working properly.
7. Let us pray three things for the Christians of Slovenia:
a. First that they will be encouraged to rise above their difficulties and start believing God for great things.
b. Second that they will be learn the depth of gratefulness and be emotionally changed forever.
c. Third, that the Slovenian Christians would open their hearts to those that will be born again in Nick’s crusade.
8. Let us believe with the organizers, that this is a new day for Slovenia. Let April 2011 be remembered as the time when God visited Slovenia and changed a nation forever.
9. Across the Balkans the enemy sows seed of disunity among the churches. Lord, we pray that this crusade will bring unity among the pastors and churches. Lord, take the enemies’ seed bag and throw it in the sea.
The meetings will be in the following cities: Ptuj, April 5th. - Koper, April 6th. - Maribor, April 7th. - Kocevje, April 8th. - Ljubljana, April 9th.
The Lord never stops amazing me. His ways are truly worth finding out. Psalm 25:14 The secret of the LORD is with those who fear Him, and He will show them His covenant.

Pray for Serbia

Serbia has been on a crooked path, this way and that way, let’s try this, let’s try that. When a plan gets hard to manage the Serb does not press on but blames someone else and tries something else; there was the Yugoslav dream, then Tito, and Milosevic was birthed, there was hope in Djindjic but he was killed.

1) Let us pray that Serbia will stop living in the past. Serbia can’t continue to blame Europe and the Turks for its problems. Let us pray that Serbia would get a vision for itself.
2) Serbia needs to take responsibility for its future and stop stumbling along like a drunken man. A drunk will lose his money and then lose his respect. Lord, help Serbia to look in the mirror and recognize its faults.
3) Lord, help Serbia to establish itself among Europe and among the nations.
4) Let us pray that Serbia would get busy developing a standard, a standard that will be respectively recognized by the nations. Help Serbia to stand on its own accomplishments.
5) There needs to be an attitude change. We pray that a proper alignment would come to Serbia. Pray that Serbia would reject the victim mentality and face up to its problems.
(The solution is not in the European Union; the EU is a trap. Although NATO was a humbling force, NATO is not to be surrendered to. Also Serbia can’t always look to Russia to be rescued.)
6) Let us pray that humility would come to the Serbian Orthodox Church. The SOC became a cultural institution long ago and needs to return to its first Love. Lord, purify that institution or let it fade into insignificant. The Serbian Orthodox Church has kept the Lord’s name but has no record of having moved in the Lord’s redemptive power.
7) There are many evangelical churches in Serbia moving in God’s power but they struggle with unity. Lord we pray for unity among the evangelical Christians.
8) I was in a prayer meeting a few weeks ago and we were praying for Serbia. The Lord showed me three things to pray for Serbia; The Lord said to pray for five intercessors that will pray for six pastors that will release seven evangelists in Serbia. Remember to pray for 5, 6 and 7 for Serbia. What I seen in the spirit was, five intercessors that start meeting and praying for the pastors of Serbia. The Lord will show them six pastors to focus their prayers on and those six pastors will get into unity and raise up seven evangelists that will spread out across Serbia preaching repentance and declaring that the Kingdom has come. Now let us pray for those five intercessors. (Dear praying saints, let the Lord show you this vision)
9) Lord, You know who those intercessors are. So burden their hearts for Serbia that they will give You no rest until those pastors come into unity. Lord release Boldness for this prayer.
Isaiah 62:6-7 “I have set watchmen upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night: ye that make mention of the LORD, keep not silence, And give him no rest, till he establish, and till he make Jerusalem a praise in the earth.” - KJV (You may want to read all of Isaiah 62)

Forgive me for coming down hard on Serbia but many times God could not bless Israel because of their “stiff necks”.
