TIRANA, Aug. 23 (Xinhua) -- Albanian police forces on Saturday destroyed around 46 thousand cannabis roots during an anti-narcotics operation in the Shkodra region in northern Albania.
Artan Didi, Director General of Albanian police, said Albania was determined in the fight against drugs until the last cannabis-planted plot was destroyed.
Around two hundred police men took part in the operation.
The operation was part of the new government's campaign to stamp out the cannabis economy in its bid to become part of the European Union.
Albania is a major cannabis-producing country in Europe and a transit point for other drugs coming from other regions. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/world/2014-08/24/c_133579015.htm
1) Let us pray for more aggressive drug law enforcement in Albania. May illegal drugs become hard to find in Albania.
2) We pray for exposure and rendering of justice for those involved in the drug trade in Albania.
3) Ever since communism fell in Albania, many missionaries have come to Albania to share Jesus. Lord, we know their efforts have not been in vain. Your word does not return void. Lord, we ask that the efforts of these missionaries would continue to bring forth fruit.
4) May fruit remain. We remember Jesus’ prayer: John 15:16 “You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.”
5) Let us pray for more fruit. Just as a farmer prays for a bountiful harvest, so we pray for spiritual fruit all across Albania.
6) Fruit needs to ripen. Let us pray for Christian maturity in Albania. May Albanian Christians be fully nurtured by the Tree of Life; Ripe and sweet and may their seeds multiply across the land.
7) There is a pastor and three others going from Albania today to Turkey in order to prayer walk for twelve days. Lord Jesus, go with them and guide them to the fields that need to be plowed by the Spirit. Lord, protect, prosper, give them favor and give them dominion over the powers of darkness that lurk there. May the fruit of the enemy be exposed and wither away.
