Azerbaijan

PRAYER FOR THIS COUNTRY

As there are ongoing tensions between Azerbaijan and Armenia over the disputed border territories, we bless this region with peace, justice, reconciliation, and forgiveness.

Bless the President of Azerbaijan and his family with salvation. We pray they will be humble enough to realize their need for salvation in Christ alone.

We bless Azerbaijan, in the Name of Jesus, that the Gospel will have a far-reaching impact in society, in business, families, law, government, and education.

Mighty God, Prince of Peace, we intercede for Your peace to rule and reign in Azerbaijan this year (The Bible, Isaiah 9:6).

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Azerbaijan has been riding the line for years between democracy and fiefdom. Its New Azerbaijan Party is accused of authoritarianism and bribery. It imprisons corruption-busting journalists and human rights advocates. Friction with neighboring Armenia over the disputed Nagorno-Karabakh disputed territory turned into outright war during this last year. Though a peace deal was negotiated, relations between the two nations have soured. Oil export revenues have aided the Azeri population, elevating living standards and increasing military strength.
