Challenges for Prayer

There are only three significant denominations among the Islanders (Anglican, Roman Catholic and Tabernacle United Free Church). Most of the population are very nominal in what faith they may have. Pray for a renewal of faith in all three of these groups. Pray for believers in their witness to fellow Islanders and to fishermen, oilmen and tourists of different nationalities who stop off in the islands.

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