Pray for Romania
Week of  March 30 - April 6, 2012

“Their deeds do not permit them
to return to their God.
A spirit of prostitution is in their heart;
they do not acknowledge the Lord.

I was in a prayer meeting and I randomly opened my Bible to see if God would speak. I opened to Hosea and my eyes fell on Hosea 5:4.  I read it and then waited on the Lord. This passage, in its context, is the Lord rebuking Ephraim.

I begin to think of how sin can deaden us to righteousness. In the prayer meeting I was actually seeking a direction to pray for Romania. At first I thought, “This is too harsh for Romania”. Then I heard the lord, “I have already rebuked Romania, you need to pray for deliverance from their bondage to sin’.

1)      Let us pray for the Lord’s mercy. Lord, we ask for You to gaze upon Romania with compassion. Lord, we stand in the gap for those lost in darkness.

2)      Thank You, Lord, that You are ready to forgive sin. Many men and women have brought curses on Romania through their depraved decisions, but You, Lord are breaking through. Thank You for open doors.

3)      Romania has a greater percentage of evangelical Christians than any other Balkan country. We thank the Lord for this but there are still many caught in darkness. Lord, although their deeds have cursed them from seeking You, Your mercy can surround them with truth. Lord, we ask that You shine a light into their dark world.

4)      Let us pray for the Christians of Romania. Lord, prepare them to shine Your light. May they be flash-lights. A light bulb fills a room with light but a flash-light is pointed directly at something.  Lord, send your saints into dark rooms where they will search every corner for lost souls. 

Twice I have been to Romania and visited many homes of non-Christians. Many homes in Romania are dark and dingy. Much sin lurks there. Families trapped in sins of lust and the occult. I thank the Lord we were able to see many come to Jesus. Although they were trapped in the darkness, we were able to shine Jesus into their darkness.  

5)      Let us pray that Romanian Christians would be so full of the Lord’s light that the off buttons on their flash-lights would be stuck on “on”. Lord, show them the joy of shining Your light.

Pray for Montenegro
Week of April 23-29, 2012
When I begin to pray and meditate on Montenegro, I got the word Cronyism.
Cronyism defined - partiality given to long-standing friends, especially by appointing them to positions of authority, regardless of their qualifications.
1)      Let us pray against unmerited favor in Montenegrin government. How can the citizens have faith in their government when Cronyism is the standard.
2)      Lord, we ask You to expose all officials involved in this practice.
Second thing to pray about is the International Donors Conference scheduled for April 24th in Sarajevo, Bosnia. This can have an impact on the Kosovo Gypsy Refugees trapped in under-furnished camps in Montenegro. The Montenegrin government has a plan to build housing for these refugees but they need funding. (Prayer for these gypsies has been included in past “Praying for the Balkans, Project” directives) Source:
3)      Lord, only You know, but this International Donors Conference may be an answer to our past prayers. Thank You, Lord.
4)      Thank You, Lord, for the plan and the men and women that took part in the development. May they see the Lord guiding their hands.
5)      Let us ask for a holistic approach to this refugee problem. Holistic in the fact that the people’s souls are ministered to and they are treated as individuals and not just a needy group. Lord, we just ask for an open door for Christians to supply spiritual healing.
6)      Lord, we pray for anointed saints to be burdened for these refugees. Lord, is this an open door similar to what the Apostle Paul had: 1 Cor. 16: 8-9 But I will tarry in Ephesus until Pentecost.  For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.
7)      There is a Christian mission group that has been ministering in these camps – Eurovangelism ( Lord, we pray they would be awarded with more anointing and finances to continue their work.
I also heard in my spirit that Montenegro needs intercessors.
8)      Lord, we ask that You put Montenegro on the hearts of the intercessors. May the bowls before God’s throne be filled with incense of prayers for Montenegro.
9)      Let us pray that the Holy Spirit would be released in Montenegro to draw men unto Jesus.
10)   Let us pray for Montenegrin Christians that will follow Jesus no matter what. Pastors, teachers, evangelist, etc. that love Jesus with all their heart.
1 Cor. 2:9  - But as it is written:  “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

Pray for Macedonia FYROM

Week of March 16-22, 2012

In October 2009 the following prayer directive was sent out by Praying for the Balkans, Project for Macedonia, “Lord, raise up intercessors that spend time with You and seek Your direction on how to pray for Macedonia.” The following request from one of our prayer partners in Macedonia shows God is rising up intercessors.

Prayer Points for Macedonia:

1. Focused prayer is needed NOW for an increase in ethnic tension between Albanians and Macedonian that has risen in the last 2 months. Tension has not been this high since an escalation of violence in which 80 people were killed in 2001 - thankfully ending in the Ohrid Peace Accord. In February an off-duty Macedonian police officer shot and killed an Albanian man over what looked to be a dispute over a parking spot. What actually happened was not made public and Albanians believe that justice was not served. The next weeks there were different Macedonian and Albanian gangs attacking people on public buses. Police cracked down and arrested 30 people. Things had been calm until last Thursday when 5 Macedonian men were found murdered by a lake on the outskirts of Skopje. So far no suspects or motive have been identified. There are calls for calm, but clearly people are upset.

Please Pray for the PEACE of Jesus to reign over this nation.


2. Pray for unity of the body of Christ in Macedonia. In recent years there has been a desire among church leaders to pursue reconciliation and grow in unity according to the prayer of Jesus in John 17. Pray that God would pour out a spirit of reconciliation and unity over all churches and believers in Macedonia. To know how to pray more specifically for this, go to the following website:

3. Pray for the House of Prayer that the Lord is raising up in Macedonia and in the Balkan nations. On May 1-3 a core group of prayer leaders from multiple Balkan nations will gather in Skopje to pray and seek the Lord for the whole Balkans. Pray that God would breath His spirit over this gathering and release a new fire for prayer and unity that will spread through the region. A website has been set up to increase prayer for an among believers in all of the Balkan nations: us for Balkan Prayer Day on Sept. 2, 2012.

4. Pray for a week of prayer in Macedonia that will be from May 11-17, 2012. We plan to have 5-7 hours a day, lifting Macedonia and her people before the Father.

5. Pray for pastors and leaders who are currently planning for the Global Day of Prayer. A 24/7 prayer room will be set up to run for 10 days from May 17-26. On Sunday, May 27, believers from all churches in Skopje will be invited to gather together, joining with churches around the world to pray for their nations and the world. Source:

Please reread the above, stopping to Pray where the Spirit tells you to. Also for more information about prayer in Macedonia or other questions about Macedonia, email:

1 Timothy 2:1-4 “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. For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior, who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.”

1) Let us thank the Lord for raising up Intercessors. May they be encouraged daily to continue to cry out. Lord, put a hedge of protection around them. Lord, show them Your heart.

2) Let us pray for a revival fire to come forth in the evangelistic churches that are in Macedonia. Lord we ask You to;

   a. Put eternity in their hearts,

   b. A Passion for Jesus,

   c. Brokenness for the lost,

   d. For finances to fund a revival,

   e. Apostolic over-site to guide and set things in order,

   f. And evangelistic meetings where the manifested presence of God is evident in signs and wonders.

3) With there being large ethnic groups in Macedonia, tension is quick to arise. Pray for the Macedonians, Bulgarians, Albanians and Roma (Gypsies) that they would learn to live together. Pray the courts would judge according to law in regards to disputes and not showing a bias. Also pray that the truth would not be hidden.

Pray for Kosovo

Week of April 9-15,2012

At the end of January Kosovo held its 13th annual International Day of Prayer, Fasting and Giving, which brought churches together and received interest in the media. Over a dozen churches in Kosovo hosted prayer meetings and attendances at these were unprecedented. Prayer rooms were set up to enable several churches to pray together for their nation.

Kosovo’s media took an interest in what was going on, with a local TV news station conducting an interview about it which was aired. Outside of Kosovo, many churches joined in to pray for their fellow believers, including many local churches across neighboring Albania. The World Evangelical Alliance encouraged its members to join in with this special day.

1. Let us thank the Lord for drawing these churches together and their obedience to the Holy Spirit. With such a prayer movement in a small country like Kosovo we can expect great things from heaven.

2. Let us pray now for lasting results, changed lives and great favor from God’s throne for Kosovo.

3. Let us pray for the pastors. May they walk in integrity, and be worthy of honor.

4. May these pastors have hearts made tender by the Lord’s love flowing through them. Let us pray for unity among the evangelical pastors of Kosovo. We rebuke slander, pride and personal kingdom building.

5. We pray for unity among the believers. May they abound in love toward one another. John 13:35

By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

6. Lord, help the pastors and church leaders in Kosovo to plan and prepare for the future.

7. May this year, 2012, be a year of great advancement for the Kosovo churches.

8. Let us pray for financial miracles for the Christians in Kosovo; job creation, giving hearts, raise in pastor’s salaries.

9. Let us pray Acts 2:46-47 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.

The report is that there are now 23 Evangelical Churches in Kosovo. With Resurrection Sunday (Easter) having just passed, let me give the following story.

Personal Story: In 1985 I went to Kosovo to visit a couple, John and Maria Angelic, who had moved from Serbia to start a church in Kosovo. At this time the church hadn’t been established but they were settling in. It was Easter Sunday and I remember thinking; “In America the churches are filled on this day but here in Kosovo there is no evangelical church to attend”.

Lord, thank You for the seeds planted 27 years ago and the fruit that has come forth. Oh, Lord, Your ways are glorious.

There are reports that the Wahhabi branch of Islam has been working in Kosovo, and thereby spreading their radical ideology. This is not good.

10. Lord, we ask that You bring confusion to the enemies camp.

11. Lord, may Your enemies eat dust upon the Kosovo fields. Prayer Is the Battle and Prayer Maintains His Victory!

Pray for Greece

Week of April 2-8,2012

I felt that the following scriptures were a guide to this week’s prayer direction.

Isaiah 66:3b-4
Just as they have chosen their own ways,
And their soul delights in their abominations,
So will I choose their delusions,
And bring their fears on them;
Because, when I called, no one answered,
When I spoke they did not hear;
But they did evil before My eyes,
And chose that in which I do not delight.

1. Greece claims to be a Christian nation but overwhelmingly the Greeks do not serve the Lord with all their heart. For many centuries now Jesus has been mostly represented by a building on a street that contains Icons. Let us pray for Greek eyes to be opened once again to the Gospel.

2. Because they delighted in their abominations, God has allowed delusion. Those Greeks that are religious seem to delight in their perverted doctrines. Let us pray that the Lord would have mercy on the Greek population and release a hunger for the truth.

3. Jesus called but they did not answer. They were busy following their own lust and greed. Let us pray that the present financial crisis would draw the Greeks back to Biblical principles.

4. Greece is like a field that lay dormant for centuries. There is richness in the soil. Lord, send Your tractors out to plow the fields and stir up the nutrients.

5. When the Gospel first came to Greece it was embraced. The Apostle Paul talks about the move of God in Greece where even businessmen and philosophers were coming to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. As we cry out for Your mercy, Lord, may You prepare the Greek heart to once again receive the Gospel.

6. May we continue to believe for revival in Greece. As the institutions that men have trusted in are being shaken, may evangelist be found proclaiming God’s place of comfort for the soul.

7. Let us pray for Greeks that live throughout the world. May they be evangelized also.

8. Let us pray for the evangelical churches in Greece. May they take a bold step outside of their four walls to plant the love of Jesus in the newly plowed fields of Greece.
