Kyrgyzstan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Eighty-nine percent of current COVID-19 cases in Kyrgyzstan are being caused by the Delta variant of the virus. As many nations around the world have battled to control this variant, pray that the Lord will show mercy to Kyrgyzstan. We speak out that the Lord Almighty is with Kyrgyzstan; the God of Jacob is her fortress. Pray that during this Christmas season, the Gospel will be shared across this Muslim nation, and pray that the seeds will fall on soft soil. Pray that many will be ready to accept that Jesus is for us, not against us, and He is here in our midst (The Bible, Psalm 46:7).

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.
