Pray for Bulgaria
Week of Mar. 19-25, 2012

Let us pray for the youth of Bulgaria.

There are two Youth ministries that have sprung up in Bulgaria that are multi-denominational in scope; New Wave and EMO.

New Wave is a Christian movement for youth and young adults. The highlight of the movement is an annual non-denominational summer camp. Each summer ‘wave’ includes contemporary praise and worship, teaching and fellowship. These three components are important. New Wave is making contributions to the Kingdom of God by raising up leaders in the areas of teaching, preaching and music ministry. They are also blessing the broader Christian community by developing music videos and other resources for use in local churches.

EMO, which is a Bulgarian acronym for Evangelical Youth Organization, began as a monthly prayer meeting of around 20 youth pastors and youth leaders. Their prayer time developed into sharing ideas and coordinating their various ministry activities. One development was an initiative called “Prayer 365”, which is an effort to mobilize Bulgaria’s Protestant churches to intercede for Bulgaria, covering every day of the year. They are also raising up a network of youth leaders throughout Bulgaria.

1) Let us just thank the Lord that He is moving in Bulgaria among the youth. The two reports mentioned above give great hope for the future of Bulgaria.

2) Lord we pray for unity among the leadership of both of these organizations. May they walk humbly before You Lord, giving honor to one another. Jesus said,

“By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:35

3) As the staff of New Wave sits down to plan the Summer camps for this year; Lord, first we pray that You will be in their mist. Lord, we ask that You supernaturally visit them with Your presence. Second, we ask Lord, that You will direct their plans. Give them much expectation to believe for a great baptism of fire for this coming summer.

4) Lord, we thank You for the innovative spirit that flows through New Wave. Continue to use them in new methods of modern ministry; such as music, videos, websites, web and radio broadcast, Social Networking, etc.

5) Lord, bless EMO as they stir up the youth to pray. Thank You Lord for giving their leadership a strategy for intercession over Bulgaria. May it result in a holy covering over Bulgaria.

6) Let us pray that the Protestant Churches would all open their doors to spiritually organized prayer. Oh, Jesus, open the doors to those Catholic and Orthodox Churches also. Touch the hearts of those priests, Lord.

7) May this be the Spring and Summer when many, many youth get saved. Lord, launch a major rescue effort. Reverse what the devil has done. May the streets and plazas in Bulgaria become a place to show forth Jesus this summer.

8) Let us pray for the churches to be ready to care for the new Christians. Show the pastors and churches how to set straight the Gospel in the minds and hearts of these new believers. May all the false myths about Jesus be corrected.

9) As you pray for Bulgaria and the Balkans, expect God to honor and respond to your prayers. He is preparing strategy to implement revival in the Balkans. May we be listening for His orders.

Cup and Cross Ministry reports:

In years past, we have visited and ministered to a dozen different youth camps in Bulgaria. Each of them has been unique and special, but it has been a while since we have ministered at a youth camp where people have been so hungry to receive from God.

Matthew 25:21

“His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.”

The Lord rewards obedience with joy and maturity.
