Pray for Turkey

Week Oct. 22-28, 2012 [Why do we pray for Turkey if only 5% is in the Balkans? The fact is Turkey has greatly influenced the Balkans throughout history.]

I wanted to spot-light a ministry that is using modern tools to reach Turks for Jesus.

Internet Outreach A project of TURKISH WORLD OUTREACH

God is moving in many dramatic and supernatural ways these days among Muslims. And the Internet is opening up incredible opportunities for evangelism.

Turkish World Outreach workers are experiencing phenomenal results with their Internet outreach among Turkish Muslims. Their community chat room and forum have led hundreds of Turks to Christ.

Turks are all over the Internet. Turkey is the 4th largest user of Facebook in the world, with 26 million and growing each day. Smart phones are as common among Turks as they are Americans. And when the Turkish government made some motions toward banning some content on the Internet, it has never seen such unanimous public disapproval. or

Daniel 12:4 Amplified Bible (AMP)
But you, O Daniel, shut up the words and seal the Book until the time of the end. [Then] many shall run to and fro and search anxiously [through the Book], and knowledge [of God’s purposes as revealed by His prophets] shall be increased and become great.

1) A new day, a new time (end-times), and new tools to spread the Gospel. Lord, we thank You for this day and time when knowledge has been increased. May we understand the battle waged through knowledge (good and evil) and overwhelm the enemy with truth.

2) Radio and television has been a beneficial tool for spreading the Gospel but through Internet we can actually interact with people using the social networking software. Let us pray for the expansion of the Internet. Lord, we ask for expansion worldwide, jungles, deserts and every remote area of the earth.

3) Lord, we thank You for Turkish World Outreach and how they are using the Internet to reach the Turkish people. May funds flow in so they can expand their reach.

4) Let us pray for social network evangelist. Let us pray for Evangelical Christian schools and universities to embrace this technology and train Internet evangelist to reach the world from their computer.

Habakkuk 2:14 KJV
For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD, as the waters cover the sea.

5) Lord, You have commissioned us to go into all the earth and preach the Gospel. Although Turkey is now 97% Islam, let us pray for the doors to open to the Gospel.

6) The untold story is the many “houses of prayer” that is opening up in Turkey. A church building can come under attack but house of prayer are low-key, but powerful.

7) Let us pray for protection of these houses of prayer. May there be an “open heaven” or divine portal for the saints to receive power to reach Turkey with the Gospel.

8) May their prayers lay out a pathway for the outpouring of the Gospel.

Acts 2:14 KJV
These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.
