Pray for Montenegro

Montenegro recorded an increase of over 14% in tourist arrivals for September 2011 over September of last year.

Montenegro is a very poor country but things are changing. Investment has come and the beautiful coast is being developed. I remember being burned for the people in poverty in Montenegro years ago. If tourism is the answer then may we pray into it.

1. Lord, we trust that You are bringing a blessing to Montenegro. May the riches of the nations come to this small nation on the Adriatic Sea.

2. As the vacation/tourist industry develops, let us pray for Christians to go seek employment there. The Apostle Paul used his skill as a tent maker to finance and open doors of ministry. Let us pray that the Lord would send “tent makers” into Montenegro to be a witness.

This morning, after reading about tourism in Montenegro, I went to and started watching videos about the Montenegrin coast. I was especially attracted to the following video about the Bay of Kotor; Although the lady’s English is hard to understand, the video’s scenery is amazing. I also went to Google maps and zoomed in on the bay.

Then it was time to go to church. During worship time at church I kept seeing that satellite view of Kotor Bay. I spent most of the worship time praying for the Bay of Kotor.

3. Lord, you created this beautiful bay on the Montenegro coast. Lord, the Bible says You looked out over the multitude and had compassion on them. Lord, we pray that Your compassion be poured out on Kotor Bay.

4. The last I heard was that there was a house church being established near there. Let us pray for the raising up of a church in that bay.

5. Lord, I know You answer prayer. I just believe You are hearing us right now and the Holy Spirit is about to move. Whatever embers of hope are already there, You are about to blow on them.

6. Lord, I thank You for the video (mentioned above). As the camera spans the bay from the mountain tops, I pray down blessings on to the towns and villages.

7. Let us pray that the Lord of the harvest will send labors to this bay. May the “Fishers of men” cast in their nets. Lord, send evangelist, use the “tent makers”, may many be compelled to go with the Gospel.

Isaiah 6:8

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying:
“ Whom shall I send,
And who will go for Us?”
Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.”

Thanks for praying with me. I hope you don't think it is strange that I talk/pray directly to the Lord, addressing Him as Lord.

Pray for (FYROM) Macedonia

23 October is being celebrated because of the founding of the Macedonian Revolutionary Organization.

Back in 1893, on October 23rd in the house of Ivan Hadzi Nikolov in Salonica, 6 young men gathered and founded the Macedonian Revolutionary Organization, which has later become a symbol and flag of the Macedonian struggle for freedom.

Later on, the organization was turned into Internal Macedonian Revolutionary Organization and its members were struggling for liberation and independence of Macedonia.

The founding of IMRO marked the beginning of an organized Macedonian revolutionary struggle, which with the Ilinden rebellion as well as the National Liberation movement in the Second World War has resulted into the creation of the Macedonian State

1)      Let us pray for Macedonia as they continue to struggle at making their country secure in the Balkans and the world. Let us pray for people of wisdom to ascend to positions of authority for the good of the country.
2)      There was a recent loan of 100 million EUROs to Macedonia to be channeled into businesses for the creation of jobs. Let us pray that this money would get into the hands of wise men and women. Let us pray that more investment money would flow into Macedonia.  Let us declare that it is time for Macedonia to blossom like a rose.
3)      Along with economic advancement there needs to be advancement in the Gospel. We see from history that the Gospel brings wisdom to a country. Pray that the evangelical Christians would be the voice of hope for Macedonia. May doors of opportunity be opened to the churches in Macedonia.
4)      Lord, I ask for Your blessing on the evangelical churches in Macedonia. May the Holy Spirit visit them with overcoming power. May the seeds planted there by the Apostle Paul and his converts come forth in another harvest.
5)      Lord, we seek Your favor for Macedonia. Let us pray for more intercessors for Macedonia. Let us fill the sensors before the throne of God with prayers for Macedonia.

I feel the the following is prophetic:
Acts 10:3-5
New King James Version (NKJV)
3) About the ninth hour of the day he saw clearly in a vision an angel of God coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius!” 4) And when he observed him, he was afraid, and said, “What is it, lord?” So he said to him, “Your prayers and your alms have come up for a memorial before God. 5) Now send men to Joppa, and send for Simon whose surname is Peter.
6)      It is time for visions to come to the Macedonian pastors, business people and government officials. It is time for their good deeds to be a memorial before the Lord. It is time for them to seek out the men and women of God to impart wisdom to them.
7)      Lord, send your trained ones to Macedonia. Those that have been prepared for this time. Let us pray for “tent maker” ministries to go to Macedonia.
The above I pray will be judged by God’s called out prophets. I do feel it came from the heart of God but it should be judged. Sometimes there is that place of prayer where you see things in the spirit and you must proclaim it.

Pray for Greece

Praise the Lord, the Hellenic (Greek) government changed its politics in favor to Israel. Over the past two years the Greek government has been turning more toward Israel. I know of at least one church group in Greece that has been praying for Israel.

1) Lord, You said that those that pray for Israel, Your covenant people, they will be blessed. We know Greece needs a blessing at this time. May the Greek government make a covenant with the God of wisdom.

I want to give the rest of this prayer time to two prayer request I received from two intercessors in Greece.

From Bro. Spyros

This is a prayer request to the Lord that a sister in Christ redacted. I totally agree with her letter. Please take it in consideration, when you pray for Greece.

2) Please, pray that the believers in Greece will seek the Lord with all their heart and that the Lord will raise anointed leaders and teachers who will preach and teach His Word, and pastor the congregations, guided by His Spirit and not by their own spirit and understanding. Because, how far can a Church go without good leadership? We need a strong and holy church, to be able to set an example and to witness to people for Christ.

3) Please, continue to pray that the devil's schemes for this country will not prosper and that Greece will serve Jesus and will become known to the world as the country that loves and takes pride in Jesus and not in the false demonic gods of the ancient pagan times. For centuries, the human spirit [humanism] has prevailed in this country. Now is the time for the Holy Spirit to prevail.

4) Pray that the current economic difficulties in Greece will open the eyes of the Greeks to understand that "the wages of sin is death". That they will be fed up with sin, as they will understand where corruption, lies and injustice have brought the country and that their hearts will be changed and they will seek the truth and justice. That they will hunger and thirst for the Word of God and a huge revival will stir up the whole nation.

5) Pray that all men of corruption and injustice will be exposed and what they have stolen from public money will be returned to the state.

6) Also pray for believers and men of justice to be given positions of influence, so that they will help in putting an end to corruption and they will set up an example of justice and Christian life.

7) And please continue praying for our government to have wisdom and to be guided by the Lord when they make decisions for the present and the future of the country. And, if among them there are evil men, who intentionally harm the nation because they seek their own profit, these men will be exposed and will be cut off from the government.

8) Please, pray for a Christian state leadership in Greece. We would love to have a true and devout Christian leader in this country. We need a leader who will understand the Word of the Lord. There isn't such a politician, that we know of, in the Greek society.

9) May the Lord anoint a David (who is hidden at the moment) and bring him to the light, soon.

10) Finally, pray that Greece will be protected from the Islamic spirits, which seek to bring death and chaos, …

11) Pray that the government will find a way to deal with this issue and that these evil Islamic spirits will be bound and will not continue to harm the Greek society.

12) At the same time, please pray that those of the Muslims who have a heart for the Lord will find Jesus here and a huge number of them will be saved.

From Pastor Jim in Crete:

Dear brother Jerry,

We need prayers for the island of Crete, Greece.

We believe God is about to start a revival in the city of Iraklion.

God has spoken to Pastors I work with that a "revolution" in Greece will start on Crete.

God bless you, Jim Vamvoukakis

 Pray for Croatia

In preparation for this prayer guide, I heard from two ministries in Croatia; One is Croatian Evangelical Outreach and the other Sion – House of Prayer for Croatia.

Sion – House of Prayer for Croatia is reporting that this is a New Day for Croatia. God is pouring out His Spirit through a women’s conference, youth conference, men’s conference and in a hunger for prayer. They report a non-ceasing out pouring of worship and prayer with many churches participating. Also there is a new unity among pastors and churches. They are believing that Croatia will rise up and be a blessing to Europe.

1. Oh, Yes Lord, we stand and believe with Sion for a mighty outpouring in Croatia. Where there is faith God will move. May they expect You to move like never before. Show them the extraordinary.

2. Pray that the church arise as God’s army and Bride, placed in an ordained place to show forth the Father to a broken culture.

3. Sion, ask prayer for a conference with John Mulinde from Uganda, October 13th – 16th. Pray that many congregations will participate. Learn more about John Mulinda at

4. Pray for the coming elections. Usually a nation gets the leader they deserve. Let us pray for an exception for Croatia. May God visit Croatia with great mercy, giving them leaders that have godly principles.

5. Lord, You can make Croatia a blessing for Europe. Lord, may grace be poured out through all the institutions in the land. We pray that promotions would come to the Christians in the workplace.

Croatian Evangelistic Outreach thanks us for our prayers and support as they witness for the Lord in the capitol city of Zagreb. They are asking for the windows to open and pour out a financial blessing. The building they occupy is old and cannot be heated properly. They need to move into a better building before it gets really cold. Also they are on the brink of being able to release a worship CD in Croatian but need $3,000 in order to produce a thousand copies.

6. Lord we know You planted that congregation in Zagreb over a decade ago to be a blessing to the country. There is an enemy holding this window shut, we rebuke him in the name of Jesus. May our prayers break the lock and let the Holy Spirit open the window wide.

7. Let faith arise in this church. It is time for the joyful sound to go out and not only bring in the lost but bring in money to house and warm the saints.

8. Lord, we pray that the CDs will be paid for and go out to the Croatian speaking people. Lord, attach angels to each one making sure they lift up joy in the hearts of saints and sinners.

I asked the Lord for a word from His Word for the Christians in Croatia. I believe the Lord led me to the book of 1 John.
1 John 1: 7-8 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

9. Lord, I pray you help the Croatian Christians to walk in Your light. May they strive to walk in purity having great appreciation for what the blood of Jesus has done.

10. Lord, let this be a winter where Your Word grows in them exceedingly. May this be a winter of the birthing of anointed teachers. I see the Lord filling Croatian saints with His word to the point their hearts burn to share it. Let the spirit-filled teachers come forth.

11. I was about to get ready to publish this, and the Lord said pray for men and women of vision to also come forth this winter. Lord, bring out Your chosen ones. Open their eyes to see Your plan for Croatia. Release courage and assurance of their calling. Let them speak with authority to the demons that stand against the Lord’s plan.

Pray for Bulgaria
Here is something really rare. A unique picture of inter-religious tolerance can be viewed in a Northeastern Bulgarian village called Kamburovo, with local Muslims working to rebuild a church. Read More at,

This is a unique area of Bulgaria where the Christians and Muslims live comfortably in peace respecting each other’s traditions and even celebrating each other’s feast and holy days.

1)    Lord we pray that this peace will continue and spread throughout all Bulgaria. May the Christians reach out with love and may the Muslims continue to reject radical Islam.

2)    The Muslims will only be won by the love of Jesus. Let us pray that the Christians be given innovative ways to be a blessing to the Muslim people in Bulgaria and around the world. Lord raise up non-confrontive Christians, with a “love anointing” to reach out to Muslims. May they appeal to the God given peaceful desires of the human heart.

 Now for the present tragedy in Bulgaria -

There has been much tension in Bulgaria for the past week. There was an incident that has fueled ethnic hatred between Bulgarians and the Roma (Gypsy) minority. A Bulgarian young man (19 yrs. old) was believed to have been intentionally run over by a minivan. The van being driven by an associate of notorious Roma mafia boss Kiril Rashkov. Bulgarians have been having mass rallies in many cities across the country protesting the incident and venting their hatred of the Roma minority.

The father of the victim insisted his son had been deliberately murdered, while the occupants of the minibus took refuge in the home of "King Kiro," before forcing their way through an improvised roadblock that had been set up by local people, injuring other villagers in the process. Having been joined by hardcore supporters of Plovdiv football club, the inhabitants of Katounitsa then set about burning and looting houses belonging to the Rachkov clan.

On Monday and Tuesday night, protests followed in many major Bulgarian cities, including the capital Sofia. Nearly 300 people in total were arrested by the police after the two nights of rallies that unfortunately involved what has been perceived as ethnic hatred.

3)    Let us pray for God’s peace. Ethnic strife is not good for Bulgaria. We pray for wise and respected leaders to stand up and sooth the fears of the protesters.

4)    Lord, help the Christians to have clean hearts in this mater. May the churches of Bulgaria reject violence, and only speak words of peace to both sides.

5)    May this be a wakeup call to the Christians to pray for Bulgaria. Lord, raise up intercessors that will seek for Your peace to prevail.

Sadly, corruption is not limited to business and politics, Research done in 2007 found that 40 percent of Bulgarians believe that high levels of corruption also exist in the healthcare industry. (“Economic Program History 2007”, Center for the Study of Democracy,

6)    Corruption is a bad problem in Bulgaria. We have prayed against corruption in Bulgaria before. The word I have for prayer, is “stumble”. Lord we pray that those involved in corruption would stumble over their own miss-deeds. Lord, set a trap.

7)    Let us pray for a healthy sense of shame in the Bulgarian society. May those involved in corruption be convicted until they cry out to God for relief. Lord convict those in government: from local magistrates to the very president and prime minister, those crooked doctors and hospital administrators, also the street thugs and the thugs living in mansions.

8)    Lord, help the honest Bulgarians to maintain hope and integrity in the face of corruption.

9)    Let us pray for the presidential and municipal elections on October 23. Righteousness or non-righteousness of a nation is usually reflected in its leaders. May servants not crooks be elected on election day.
