Pray for Bosnia Herzegovina

The fact is, Bosnia Herzegovina is a mixed up country. Three nationalities, two federations in one country; Three presidents from the three nationalities that rotate in the office. Some people say they are Croatian, some say they are Serb and some Bosniak, but they are all suppose to be Bosnian. After Yugoslavia split up these three nationalities in Bosnia went to war against each other. NATO and the Americans settled the war with the Dayton Accord. Most people think this settlement caused more problems than it solved. Also they have to agree that it did stop the killing and although the constitution is really crazy, at least there is no war presently.

1) Let us pray that Bosnians be able to put the war behind them. The Lord needs to work forgiveness into the people of all three ethnic groups.

2) Only revival can bring about a national change of heart. With very little happening spiritually in Bosnia Herzegovina, we need to pray for a miracle. Let us intercede for the Lord to have mercy on the country and open doors.

3) Let us pray for the evangelical churches, asking the Lord to shine grace upon them. May the Christians realize they are a “light on a hill”. The Lord has provided in His word the solutions for the country, let us pray the Christians would stand up in the culture and let their banner fly.

4) Let us pray for the Catholic and Orthodox churches, that the priest would turn from nationalism and seek to be used as part of the solution.

5) Let us pray for the Bosniaks, especially those that embrace Islam. Pray that they too would seek to live peaceably with all nationalities.

6) Lord, we pray for a plan to reach the Muslims of Bosnia Herzegovina.

7) Lord, we pray that you would send out labors to harvest the fields. Truly the fields are ripe. There is such a lack of hope in Bosnia. Lord, we ask that a message of hope would go forth in the land.

8) We pray that the churches, Christians and all the missionaries that the Lord sends would be so filled with hope that people would be drawn to them. Bosnia needs an out-pouring of hope.

Psalms 33:22 Let Your mercy, O LORD, be upon us, Just as we hope in You.

Pray for Albania

Albania is the size of Belgium and has a population of about 3,300,000. In Europe, it is the one of the poorest countries and has the highest proportion of young people. It is also Europe's only predominantly Moslem country: 70% of the people have a Moslem background. About 10% are Roman Catholic and 20% Orthodox.

1) Albania has always been an isolated country; being up against the sea on one side and surrounded by a mountain range around its borders. The communist took advantage of this and kept Albania closed off from the world. Now that the door is open and the Albanians are free may they discover the real source of freedom in Jesus Christ. Lord, we not only ask for open doors for the Gospel to freely go into Albania but we ask that Albanian hearts be open. We pray against any spirit of isolation or exclusiveness.

2) Lord, it is glorious to see You move in the mist of nations. We do thank You for opening the doors to Albania. Let us pray for every institution; government and non-government to be managed with honesty, allowing freedom to worship, encouraging development of enterprise, respecting past promises, protecting truth in education, mainly policies that promote peace. There is new leadership arising in Albania. Lord we ask for men and women of principle to be raised up to lead the emerging institutions.

3) Lord we pray that truly a great light would come to the Albanian people. In Isaiah 59 the scriptures talk of “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” Lord we ask that You make the churches strong in Albania. Give them the strength to stand against the influx of post-modern culture and provide a redemptive alternative.

4) Let us pray against militant Islam and those that would want to stir up trouble in Albania. May there be peace between the religions. Although Christianity is classified as a religion, actually it is people just being like Jesus. May Your people Lord, go and do works of righteousness.

5) Let us pray for Albanian Evangelical Mission, a prayer and mission group raised up in the United Kingdom to reach Albania. AEM have been working for Albania since 1986. May the Lord continue to bless their efforts to spread the Gospel in Albania. (For more information, see their website,

6) Lord we pray for the present churches in the land. Give them shepherds that seek You and love the sheep like You love Your bride. Pastors and Priest, that are open to the needs of the people. Lord, give revelation that is Your wisdom poured out.

7) Lord we pray You send teachers into Albania and raise up teachers in the churches. The Christians need to know the blessings of living the Christian life.

8) Let us pray for the Muslim population of Albania. They are so special to the Lord, so may He send out labors into their fields, neighbors and businesses.

Pray for Turkey

Although Turkey is considered a secular state it is undeniably Islamic in culture and Christian churches are tolerated as long as they stay confined.

1. Ask the Lord to expose the lies and endless misinformation about Jesus Christ, the Bible and Christians that have hardened and deceived hearts throughout this land of Turkey.

2. Pray that the Christian fellowship in the Beşiktaş district of Istanbul will soon receive legal status as a church. Ask the Lord to bless the outreach of this exciting body of believers.

3. Let us pray protection over the churches in Turkey. We pray that the enemy will be distracted and confused.

4. Over the past five years Houses of Prayer have been organized to intercede and establish an open heaven in critical areas of Turkey. Let us pray that God would come down with transforming power to take spiritual dominion.

5. Let us pray for Gospel Radio being broadcast into Turkey.

a. Pray that many would tune in and be touched by the Gospel. May the Holy Spirit open their hearts to receive Jesus.

b. May Truth overcome the lies of the past.

c. Lord, we ask for undeniable confirmation in their hearts of their salvation.

d. Pray that many Turks would contact the ministries that are offering Bible correspondence.

6. Also there are many coming to Jesus through the Internet. Let us pray for Internet ministers that can use the Turkish language to reach the curious and searching. Anoint their keyboards.

7. Many of these radio and Internet converts are alone, surrounded by unbelievers. Lord, we ask that You spend special intimate time with them making Your presence very real to them.

8. The nation’s undisputed political leader is 57-year-old Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan – a Muslim cleric, onetime semi-professional soccer player, and former mayor of Istanbul. “We didn’t come to rule!” he says to admiring crowds. “We came to serve you!” Pray according to 1 Timothy 2:1-2 for this man and the government he leads. “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be made for all men, for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence.”

9. There is a healthy “going forward” attitude in Turkey. Last year the country’s economy grew faster than all leading nations except China and India. Pray that this progress will benefit those in greatest need. Unemployment is high in the Eastern Turkey and among young people.

Pray for Slovenia

For the past six days I have been really sick from an outbreak of singles. Thank the Lord, I really started getting better yesterday. I haven’t been able to do the research and meditation in preparation for this prayer guide so I am going to rely upon a dear intercessor in Slovenian named Todd. For a good monthly prayer guide for Slovenia request his Prayer Calendar by email:

1)      Pray for the Churches of Slovenia – Pray for Christians, as they return from vacations, to make church attendance a priority this Fall.

2)      Pray for hunger for God – Pray for those Slovenes getting back into the routine of the fall season. Pray they would not be satisfied with the answers they have about life. Pray that dissatisfaction would lead them to find satisfaction, peace and purpose in Christ.

3)      Spiritual fruit from Summer Camps – For many time, energy, prayer and finances were put into summer camps for all ages. Keep praying for those who came to the camps to now get connected with local believers and evangelical churches.

4)      Taking the Gospel – Pray that the whole Gospel would be spread across Solenia – full of grace and love, serving needs, reaching the whole person with the Good News.

Acts 26: 24 Now as he thus made his defense, Festus said with a loud voice, “Paul, you are beside yourself! Much learning is driving you mad!”
25 But he said, “I am not mad, most noble Festus, but speak the words of truth and reason.

5)      Like Paul before King Festus - Pray that Slovene Christians would be so convinced of the truth of the Gospel that Jesus is indeed the one and only way, truth and life that they would share the Gospel boldly with their family and friends.

6)      Slovene Municipalities – Slovenia is divided up into governed municipalities. Many of municipalities do not have an evangelical church. A good start may be home groups or Bible study groups. Let us pray for homes to be opened up to the Gospel in these areas. God anoint teacher/pastors to guide the group even if they are just a few.

7)      Let us pray for pastors and their families. Lord, we add out faith and intercede for these pastors and their families. Do not let the enemy strike down the leader.

8)      Unity will cost – To say “I need you” (1Cor. 12:21-22), or admit I was wrong, or accept correction costs a person’s pride. Pray for genuine, humble repentance in the churches. Rray we would be willing to pay the price to be unified.
