Challenges for Prayer

There is a shortfall of pastors, especially for Free Churches of all types. Even with a number of fresh and new ministries and church planting efforts, many evangelical congregations, especially those without a pastor, are in stagnation or even decline. Pray for the provision of capable, godly leaders and for the revitalization of these evangelical congregations.

Quest for spirituality. Much of the obvious growth in spirituality in recent years has not led Danes to Christian faith and the Church. Pray that their spiritual search will lead more Danes to genuine Christian belief. Pray also that the Church will become effective and creative in reaching out to seekers.
