Mongolia

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

Khurelsukh Ukhnaa has been appointed the new president, the nation’s sixth since it became a democracy 30 years ago. It is the first time that the Mongolian People’s Party (MPP) retained power following an election. As we pray today, we bless Mr.Ukhnaa in Jesus’ Name, that the Lord will lead him, direct him and give him wisdom. We pray for his salvation and ask that the Holy Spirit lead him into all truth. We speak out over this nation, the blessing of stable government that will lead the nation in righteousness (The Bible, John 16:13).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Squashed in between Russia and China, Mongolia thrives by allowing religious freedom. A young democracy, Mongolia has struggled with accusations of corruption and last year people protested demanding greater change. Mongolia’s economy continues to improve despite harsh winters that threaten the traditional lifestyle and income of cattle farmers. In 1989, less than a handful of Christian Mongols lived in the country, while now 100,000 Christian Believers are thought to exist.
