PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Praise Report

Praise God for a few Christian Believers and full time Christian workers who faithfully live out their faith in this nation, sharing the Gospel and are willing to face the consequences (The Bible, 1 Samuel 12:24).

Prayer Requests

Pray for breakthroughs in relationships Christian Believers have with people who have demonstrated some interest in spiritual matters but find it difficult to make a commitment to follow Jesus. Pray that a movement of people coming to Christ will take place (The Bible, Deuteronomy 31:8).

Pray for Christian ministries to have favor with the community and authorities. Pray that their ability to operate will not be hindered by the authorities (The Bible, Genesis 39:21).

Call to Salvation

Pray for the salvation of influential leaders in both the cities and the rural regions. Pray that they will bring many others with them into God’s Kingdom (The Bible, Acts 2:38).

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.
