The government faces an uphill battle in establishing true stability and order. A young nation, Honduras colonial past and military rule for most of its independence mean that democratic structures and mentalities must be nurtured. Corruption within the government, preferential treatment of the rich minority and prevalent poverty make the nation vulnerable to structures of sin. Pray for righteousness and for wise and resolute governance.
Specialist Christian ministries. Pray for:
a) Student outreach by both CCCI and IFES. With a burgeoning young population, many churches are also taking up ministry to children and students.
b) Christian literature. Hosanna and Vidas bookstores are important resources for Christian growth.
c) Radio. National radio gives time to several evangelical churches, and there are 41 local evangelical radio stations (such as HRVC, Stereo Luz and Cosecha) and two TV channels as well as Internet radio.
