Challenges for Prayer

Foreigners comprise both some of the staunchest believers and some of the least reached. The majority of expatriates are present for employment, business or EU affairs (with day commuters, Luxembourg becomes over 50% foreign!), and show little interest in spiritual things. Others, such as Muslim immigrants from the Balkans, adhere to other faiths. Pray for the vision and strategy for reaching each group, and for receptive hearts.

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