Kyrgyzstan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Kyrgyzstan, we bless you in Jesus’ Mighty Name, that He will show you how to move into a place of freedom and stability that is not dependent on state or religious control.

 

Bless churches with favor and breakthroughs in their communities and ministries. Pray that more churches will be able to register themselves this year.

 

Bless those who are struggling financially in this difficult winter, to be provided for.

 

Mighty God, we pray that you will break through in this nation that is difficult to reach with the Gospel (The Bible, Proverbs 11:30).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Kyrgyzstan remains one of the poorest countries in post-Soviet Central Asia. Unemployment, corruption, inflation, and religious and human-rights violations still plague people’s lives, as it did before the Tulip Revolution. In 2010 a parliamentary constitution with elaborate checks and balances was adopted, making Kyrgyzstan the only Central Asian country in which the president is limited to a single term. Most Kyrgyz are nominal Muslims, but a growing Islamic identity is concerning. A lack of growth in the Church has been observed. There is diversity even within Kyrgyz culture: city, youth, and village cultures, Russian and Kyrgyz speakers, let alone other people groups including Uzbeks, Tajiks, and Uyghurs who live in Kyrgyzstan. This poses a very real challenge for effective church planting.
