Pray for Bosnia Herzegovina

In this Saturday Aug. 11, 2012 photo the clothes in which 6-year-old Tarik Bijelic died hang on the line in front of his family's small house in the village of Olovske Luke, 60 kilometers north of Sarajevo, Bosnia. Tarik Bijelic was hit by a land mine last week as he scavenged in the forest for firewood to help his family make ends meet. He died in his father’s arms.

Two more discouraging Reports
Posted on August 15th, 2012
With international interest in the country having dissolved, Bosnia and Herzegovina’s politicians can now start pulling apart the political architecture imposed by the US Government at Dayton, bringing the state ever closer to irretrievable collapse.

KONJIC, Bosnia-Herzegovina (AP) - Heavy winds, steep hills and landmines were complicating firefighters' efforts to battle four blazes in southern Bosnia on Friday, including one close to an ammunition factory, authorities said.

     1.      These three reports signal to us the troubles and sorrows in Bosnia Herzegovina. Lord, we pray for Your mercy for the land. They did to see the Light, they need relief.
       2.      Let us pray that a new war in Bosnia would be avoided. Lord, make a way for the three cultures to reconcile their differences.
      3.    Some say a divided Bosnia Herzegovina would be best and some say they must stay together. Lord, we pray that You would help the Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats work out this problem in peace.
      4.    Let us pray for a way to detect the land minds. Is there a radar or long-distance metal detector that can be applied? 

In the past two years there has been growth in the number of evangelicals; from 700 to about 2,200. That is encouraging but in a land of 4 million people there is much more evangelizing to do.

      5.     Lord, we thank You for tripling the number of believers in the past two years. Let us pray that in the next two years there would be ten times as many believers as there are today.

Acts 2:46-47 (NKJV)  So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart,  praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.

     6.    Let us first pray for unity among the Christians in B-H.
      7.    Oh, Lord, we do pray for souls to be added daily to the Christian fellowships in Bosnia Herzegovina.
     8.      Let us pray for the Christians in B-H. May the Lord hold them in the faith and encourage their hearts. Lord, we ask for Your presence to be in their small gatherings.
      9.      Lord, send missionaries into Bosnia Herzegovina. Give them strategy to plant churches throughout the country. Break their hearts for this unevangelized land.
     10.  Lord, we pray that finances would be raised for the churches in B-H and the pastors and elders would know how to properly apply these monies toward the kingdom.
     11.  Let us pray for the city of Sarajevo, the capital city of Bosnia Herzegovina. Ninety five percent Muslim is a curse that can stifle any city. Lord, give grace to the Christians that live there and show them how to bless their neighbors.
