Challenges for Prayer

Expatriate Christian input is definitely needed for believers in Bosnia to have a greater impact, and there are many ways to impact the nation. Pray that those engaged in leadership development, aid, rehabilitation, outreach and church planting ministries might fully identify with the people, and that through these a harvest may be won. Pray for effective networking among expatriates. The largest agencies: Pioneers, OM, Novi Most International and TE.

Creative means of sharing Christ’s love are both necessary and effective. Among them are the Alpha Course, house construction and repairs, ESL and German-language acquisition, handicrafts, coffee bars, sports and camps, youth ministries and, most strategically, prayer and intercession – the foundation for all other ministry.

     For an additional 6 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
