Answer to Prayer

The succession of crises – the military dictatorship, the disappearances of dissidents, the failed Falklands/Malvinas war in 1982 and massive economic disaster in 1999-2002 – led the nation into spiritual hunger, drawing them back to God and galvanizing their commitment to justice and democracy.

Challenge for Prayer

Behind Argentina’s sophistication and postmodern façade lie intense spiritual struggles for souls. The low-key but widespread influence of the occult (Western and Latin expressions), one of the world’s highest Mormon populations and the growing Muslim population all vie for souls with postmodern agnosticism, hedonistic lifestyles and Christianity. Spiritism’s hidden currents strongly influence far more people than will openly identify with such groups. Past battles were won through intercession; pray for protection and continued spiritual health for all in the forefront of the battle.
