Prayer for Greece: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - June 5

Today, we pray for a country that's been much in the news lately. Greece is suffering an economic meltdown and few Europeans are without opinions on the matter. What a great reminder that we have a God who sees beyond the headlines! He knows what He's doing in Greece, what's going on under the surface, and most importantly, He tenderly cares for each and every soul in Greece. Please read pages 370-373 to learn more about this country that was one of the Biblical "superpowers".

My prayer for today: Lord, I lift Greece up to You today. Thank You for the openness on a legal level and the reduced tension between Greece and Turkey. Lord, please use this to help Christians have doors of opportunity. Quiet and peaceful lives should result in the spread of the Gospel; this is our prayer for Greece. Let the dissatisfaction over the financial woes turn into a hunger to know You. Lord, bring peace in the middle of this chaos and reveals Yourself as greater than any crisis. Restore vitality and life to the churches. Bring unity and a strong foundation of Your word. Lord, increase the missions vision of the church in Greece. Let them see how strategically You have positioned them - not only for the outpouring of immigrants in Greece, but for the surrounding nations. Demonstrate Your love and grace to Greece. In Jesus' name, amen.
