The Orthodox Church is characterized by an almost farcical drama of claims, counter-claims and mutual anathematizations as the Montenegrin Orthodox Church seeks to establish itself in place of the Serbian Orthodox Church. Before the 20th Century the Montenegrin Orthodox Church existed as an autocephalous group. Pray that instead of squabbling over rights and property, Orthodox leaders would demonstrate Christlike leadership to a population whose faith is, for the most part, nominal. Pray for new spiritual life to come to the nations Orthodox community (75% of the population).
