TRAIL OF THE NATIONS

LEAST REACHED PEOPLES OF EASTERN EUROPE & EURASIA

STOP #10

face_region9Learn More About The Region:

Eastern Europe and Eurasia are comprised of 20 countries with 258 least-reached peoples remaining among them. Kosovo leads with 90.7% of their population, almost 1.6 million people remaining least-reached. However, in sheer numbers, Russia exceeds them with over 13 million least-reached people in 89 different people groups. A decade of a measure of democracy associated with greed, crime, self-seeking politicians, a pervasive mafia and degeneration of the quality of life caused many in Russia to hanker after the authoritarian certainties of Communist dictatorship. The long-term disastrous distortions of Marxist economies in Eastern Europe adversely affected national infrastructures, ecology and the work ethic of the people. The dominant realities of the 1990’s have been the gradual recovery of most former Communist states and the strengthening and planned expansion of the EU from 13 original members to most nations in Europe. Ethnocentrism and religion have become important and major causes for political confrontations since 1990. The church overall in Eastern Europe and Eurasia is small and struggling but there are rays of hope in places like Ukraine. Pray that the spirit of prayer will sweep through the church and revive it. Pray for laborers for this volatile environment that is ripe for the good news.

Prayer Points:

DELIVERANCE FROM ADDICTIONS:

Pray God sets the captives free from bondages of addictions, such as alcohol and drug abuse, sexual addiction, pornography, and gambling in order that they may be lights in the world, examples of God’s grace and goodness in Jesus.

HOUND OF HEAVEN:

Pray the Holy Spirit searches for the lost of the remaining 258 Least-Reached Peoples relentlessly and demonstrates to them God’s goodness that leads them to repentance.

OVERCOME EVIL WITH GOOD:

Pray that God shows believers how to overcome evil such as greed, crime, self-seeking, organized crime, and degeneration with His goodness and love that His kingdom may rapidly grow.

ALL THINGS TO ALL MEN:

Pray that the Church understands Paul’s command to become all things to all men that they might win some in order to bring the gospel in a way that can be understood and accepted.

INVISIBLE MEANS OF SUPPORT:

Pray for God to pour out His heavenly provision though those whose hearts are completely His so that He supplies and multiples all resources needed for reaching those who have not yet heard the good news.
