Challenges for Prayer

The evangelical community is tiny, but multiplying. The Pentecostals, Baptists and Brethren have active growing churches. Evangelicals increased five-fold between 2000 and 2005, but they still only number 0.03% of the population. Evangelical congregations, while only a handful, have a vision for sharing the gospel; pray for continued church growth. Pray for steadfast witness in the face of opposition, for unity among denominations and for fruitful ministry.
