Some definitions of the word contend include to grapple with, rumble, fight an adversary, strive, or contend as with a judge. Today we contend for Albania in our prayers. We cry out to the Lord in our prayers on behalf of this nation, saying it is time for the Church to rise up in unity and love, sharing the Gospel boldly. It is time for Albanians to have open hearts and minds, receptive to hear the Good News that is being shared. Pray that God will rescue Albanians for spiritual darkness and bring them into the light of Christ. Pray for those who do not fear the Lord, that they may find themselves seeking to know the truth about Jesus Christ (The Bible, Psalm 55:17-19).
