Prayers for Croatia: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - May 4 (Day 125)

Today we take a trip back in time - in a way. We're praying for Croatia, part of the former USSR and a country still recovering from decades of communism. Ethnic conflicts here led to development of the term "balkanization" as the countries fragmented more and more into ethnic regions as independent states. In a region where ethnic distinctions are clear, where dividing lines are set by virtue of one's people group, the church is in a unique role to demonstrate what Operation World beautifully calls "the boundary-breaking, universal love of God", showing the unity of the body as John 17 and Ephesians 2 call us to do.

Please read pages 289-291, then watch the video below for our prayer time today.
