Pray for Bosnia Herzegovina
Bosnia Herzegovina is a country that has went through a civil war, endured a lack of infrastructure; good roads, educational opportunities and disciplined civil government. Let us pray that the Lord would visit them and lift up their heads.
Psalm 24:
Lift up your heads, O you gates!
And be lifted up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
8 Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty,
The LORD mighty in battle.
9 Lift up your heads, O you gates!
Lift up, you everlasting doors!
And the King of glory shall come in.
10 Who is this King of glory?
The LORD of hosts,
He is the King of glory.

1) Lord we lift up Bosnia Herzegovina to You. In the spirit we lift the gates for them. As we pray we believe You are moving. Lift the gates so the Lord can enter. Lord, we give ourselves in prayer for this country.
2) First let us ask that the people of Bosnia Herzegovina would lift up their heads. Within their spirit-man they would yearn for hope. They would not look at the negative things around them but they would have hope rise in their hearts.
3) As the gates open, may a flood of good news pour in. Send missionaries Lord. Let them be burdened for the Bosnian people. Ready to face those negative things working in the lives of people and ready to point them to Jesus.
4) Lord, You are strong and mighty, especially You are strong in battle against the enemy. There are battles in the physical in Bosnia Herzegovina, Lord, You war in the heavenlies. Show us the battle; We will declare the victory.
5) Lord, stir the churches in Bosnia Herzegovina to pray for their country. With boldness, may they approach Your throne.
6) Show them the enemy, how he manifest himself, and what are his strategies in their country. Expose the enemy, drive him into the open for all to see his shame. May judgment come to the individuals that are being used by the enemy. But Lord, provide a door of redemption for the evil doers. Let conviction fall. May even the priest speak out against corruption.
7) Lord we pray that You would release Your plan for effective ministry to reach the Muslim population.
8) Let us pray for the release of resources to finance ministry to Bosnia Herzegovina this year.
9) Lord, we ask for Your grace to be extended to the children of Bosnia. Open the hearts of the Churches to the youth. Even now release strategies to minister to the children this coming summer; youth camps, street drama, Christian clubs, sports, etc.
10) Lord, we cry out in our spirits, “How long Lord, before You visit the hurting people of Bosnia Herzegovina.” Oh, Lord, release Your light into the darkness.
11) Let there be an everlasting door opened that leads to everlasting life, and that the people will know Who is the King of Glory.

Request for prayer from a church in Sarajevo, Bosnia.

Romans 15:20
It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else's foundation.

We have a small church meeting in Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia-Herzegovina. If you are looking for guidance in terms of what to pray for, here are some suggestions:

1. Pray for a stable government that is favorably disposed to Christianity.
2. Pray that God will strengthen the disciples who are already in the country.
3. Pray that God will open hearts and connect those open hearts with disciples.
4. Pray for nationals to be converted in other churches around the world.
5. Pray for God to inspire brothers and sisters to want to lead others.
Please leave a Comment or Reaction so we will know you prayed.
