IN THE NEWS: Montenegrins debate political offer for October election
The campaign for Montenegro's ninth parliamentary election began September 14th amid a debate about whether the fractured opposition can muster the strength to unseat the Democratic Party of Socialists (DPS) and its coalition partners, who have ruled for 23 years.
1) Let us pray for the election coming up in Montenegro in October. Let us pray for the DPS party who will likely stay in power. We pray that men and women of good consciences would be elected to be servants of the state.
2) Lord, we ask for servants that do their duty for the people not profiteers. Change the hearts of those running for office. If they are not honest, expose their miss-deeds.

3) Let us pray for morality to arise. May fathers and mothers live righteous before their children and these children grow up to respect what is right.
4) Lord, we know that You honor the righteous. May righteousness be taught in the churches of Montenegro. Although there are very few evangelical churches in Montenegro, may these dear saints be known as people that can be trusted.
5) We pray that the Orthodox and Catholic churches would be moved to make morality a cornerstone of their teachings.
6) We ask that moral righteous educators would be in charge of the school curriculums in Macedonia. Give them the desire to teach honesty, respect and duty to others.
7) Let us pray for the gates of righteousness to be opened up to Montenegro.
Psalm 24:7
Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.

Psalm 118:19
Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, And I will praise the LORD.

8) Let us pray for these few evangelical churches. Lord, give them favor in the culture.
9) Let us pray for the pastors of Montenegro. May they have the wisdom, finances and anointing to be full-time for the Lord.

Pray for FYRO Macedonia

Week of Sept. 17-23, 2012

Kale Fortress in Skopje, Macedonia >

In a municipality in Skopje, the capital of Macedonia, the ethnic Albanians that are a majority want to rename their schools Albanian names and take away the names of Macedonian heroes. The Albanians have placed plaques in front of four schools with the new names and the education department is demanding their removal.

1)    Let us pray for a peaceful solution to this situation. Let us pray for a wise maneuver that will satisfy both sides.
2)    Let us pray for reconciliation between the ethnic communities in Macedonia. May common ground be found and celebrated.
3)    Lord, let Your blessings, good works and peaceful co-existence be seen in the evangelical churches. Albanians, Macedonians, Bulgarians, etc. all praising the Lord together.

Presidents of Macedonia and Albania – Gjorge Ivanov and Bujar Nishani, held their first meeting in Ohrid, Macedonia. Ivanov and Nishani were unanimous that the arguments and problems in the region should be solved through dialogue.

4)    Let us pray for these two men that are taking steps to peacefully resolve disputes. We pray that both men would listen to calm reason and be surrounded with wise counsel.
5)    Lord, we pray for intercessors that will pray for these men and stand in the gap for Macedonia.

1    Timothy 2: 1-2 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.

Unemployment in Macedonia is currently at around 31 percent, one of the highest rates in Europe.

6)    Lord, Macedonia needs help. Let us pray against despair. Let us pray that hope will be renewed. Let us pray that innovation, investment and vision would come together in Macedonia to advance business.
7)    With 31 percent unemployment, then the churches are suffering from lack of finances. Pastors have to work in the marketplace and that drains their pastoral duties. Lord, meet every Macedonian pastor right where they are at and bless their store-house with plenty.
8)    Lord, we ask that You start with the churches and bless all the faithful with good paying jobs.  Every Christian has talents and skills that should be profitable to them and their family.
9)    Let us pray for the children of Macedonia. Starting in the house of faith, may the families be protected from cultural sins, alcoholism, divorce and parent neglect . May the fathers and mothers take their jobs serious to raise up children to follow the Lord. May the Christian families be a testimony to their neighbors and their extended families.

Pray for Greece

Week of Sept. 10-16, 2012

ATHENS, Greece — Judges, public prosecutors and court workers gathered Wednesday in a rare demonstration at Greece's Supreme Court to protest pay cuts that have also drawn the ire of police, fire brigade, coast guard and university staff unions.

Greece's largest labor union has warned that the country's unemployment rate -- now at 23.1 percent --will reach 29% in 2013 if the government carries out more planned austerity measures  ...

Savvas Rombolis, Head of Research at the GSEE labor union, which represents private-sector workers, said, "The course of the Greek economy is one of decline. In 2012, we are expecting a drop in GDP of 7 percent. Our estimate is that in 2013, unemployment will be between 28% and 29%, more than 1.4 million people. That's because we expect the economy to remain in decline."

I am going to pull up a prayer directive from Aug. 2010. You will notice that the unemployment that was predicted for 2012 has risen even more. Greece seriously needs prayer.


The International Monetary Fund predicts the jobless rate will reach 14.8% by 2012. But some labor experts fear that before long, one in five Greek workers could be without jobs.

1.       Let us pray for a reversal of the above economic forecast. Lord if this is Your judgment, we pray that Greeks would humble themselves, repent of not seeking You and now seek Your wisdom. May they see they can no longer trust in their plans.

2.       Let us pray for Greece Rev. 2:4-5 “Nevertheless I have this against you, that you have left your first love. “Remember therefore from where you have fallen; repent and do the first works, or else I will come to you quickly and remove your lampstand from its place—unless you repent.”

3.       Lord, we pray for mercy for the Greek people. Once they carried the lamp of God and showed Europe the joy of salvation. Now Lord, they need their lamp lighted again. 

4.       Lord, we pray that You will light fires throughout the country. Start to move by Your Spirit in churches that have forgotten Your glory. Lord, stir the spirit within Your people.

5.       Let us pray for unity among the Christians. Then Lord, release intercession in Your people in Greece.  May they cry out for their nation according to 2 Chr. 7: 13“When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people, 14“if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.”


1)      Lord, we had asked for Your mercy for Greece two years ago, but they must not of been ready. Let us pray for another chance.

2)      May Greece wake up and realize their dire situation. Draw them back to You, Lord. As a nation, they need to recognize their need for wisdom, divine wisdom.

3)      Lord, wake up the intercessors to pray for Greece. We know, Lord, You can take a bad situation and bring about Your Glory.

4)      As people’s lifestyles are changing, having to do without, may their hearts be drawn back to the Lord.

5)      Let us pray for the youth of Greece. May every evangelical church in Greece launch out in youth ministry. Give them a plan to capture their hearts before the world takes them away. Oh, Lord, save this up-coming generation.

Pray for Croatia

Week of Sept. 3-9,2012

Good things are happening along the Adriatic Sea coast of Croatia. It is becoming the play ground of Europe, as many come to enjoy the beach and sun each summer. This summer has been good with more tourist than before. The native Croatians have done their best to accommodate, entertain and provide their best sea food. Even celebrates came this summer to enjoy the calm sea and picturesque village atmosphere.

1)    Lord, we bless You in Your creation. Truly You have blessed Croatia with a beautiful coast.
2)    Tourist are tourist and they come and go, but the Croatians stay. As the Fall comes and then followed by Winter, the people settle down to a quieter time May they reflect on their spiritual needs. Lord, quicken them to the voice of eternity in their hearts.
3)    There are very few evangelical churches down along the Adriatic coast. Lord, we ask for evangelist to be raised up with a burden for the people there.

John 6: 27 (KJV) Labour not for the meat that perisheth, but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, which the Son of man shall give unto you: for Him hath God the Father sealed.

4)    I heard a report the other day that there is only one evangelical church on the eastern side of Zagreb the capitol and main city of Croatia (250,000 people est.). Let us pray that many will be given a burden for the people of that area. Video:

I heard the word “peace” for Croatia; A time of no outside threats. The Austro-Hungarian empire is long gone; the Italians have their economic problems; the Serbs have been humbled and Croatia will become a state in the European Union next year.

5)    Let us pray for economic and governmental blessings for Croatia. Lord, we pray for the positioning of key leaders.
6)    We pray for Christians to be leaders in the market place and the halls of government. Lord, give wisdom and favor to the people of God. Show them how to solve Croatia’s internal problems.

7)    Let us pray for Gospel broadcast. Lord, open the airways for the Good News. Lord, prepare pastors to teach, technicians to program shows and video artist to capture attention. Let there be modern productions that speak to a new generation.

8)    Let us pray for an anointing on the churches to reach the younger generation. Show them how to speak the Gospel in this generation’s language. Jesus has a relative message that can touch this generation’s needs.

9)    Let us thank the Lord for all the summer youth camps that was held for the youth in Croatia.  Lord, bless everyone that was involved. Bless the children that heard, the teachers that taught, the guest that spoke and the people who gave to meet the financial needs. Lord, may those children go on to walk in Your glory. Help them to stand up to the pressure of their peers.

10)    There are many praying for a drug rehabilitation center for Croatia. Let us join in asking the Lord for the funding and Christian staff that know how to minister the delivering power of God.
