Challenges for Prayer

Greenland has been Christianized, but not converted. Nearly every settlement has its Lutheran church building – but too many lack real spiritual life. Pray for renewal and new life for Dane and Greenlander alike. The tightly knit communities of Greenland could easily be impacted powerfully by a move of God.

     For an additional 3 Challenges for Prayer see Operation World book, CD-ROM, or DVD-ROM.
