Kyrgyzstan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

One definition of the word contend is likened to the intense effort of a wrestling match. Today we contend for breakthroughs for God’s Kingdom in Kyrgyzstan.  Too long has the Church remained small and harassed in this nation. Pray that God will empower the Church to preach with authority, evangelize with great effectiveness and minister with compassion and love. Pray that Christians will be inspired to share their faith widely, and that some of that seed will fall on good soil, reaching others who are seeking for truth, hope and purpose in their lives. Pray for the beginning of many Bible study groups in homes all across this nation (The Bible, Jude 1:3).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Kyrgyzstan remains the second poorest country 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.
