Challenges for Prayer

Tourism combined with offshore finance bring both large numbers of wealthy pleasure-seeking visitors and illegal (and too often undesirable) immigrants, with the inevitable moral impact on island life. Pray for local Christians and for their witness to both tourists and immigrants.

The motto of the Virgin Islands is “Where there’s no vision, the people will perish.” Pray that local Christians might recover a powerful vision for the lost in their own islands and abroad.

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