Praying for Latvia: A 365 Day Global Prayer Journey - August 10

Although Latvia was one of the last European nations to accept the Gospel, it was one of the earliest to embrace Protestantism, and endured much persecution under Nazis and Communists. Today, there is freedom for all religions and yet a moral vacuum and much nominalism. Please read pages 525-527 as we pray for Latvia today.

My prayer for today: Oh Lord, it is so sad to see freedom squandered. Please help Latvians to recognize the freedom You have given them. Help the churches grasp the significance of this kairos moment, this key period of time where You have opened a window for them to freely share the Gospel. We pray that You would revive the church, infuse it with the fire of Your Holy Spirit, and give it the vision to reach Latvia and eastern Europe with the Gospel. We pray that the unity among the churches would result in a turning away from moral bankruptcy and toward truth. We pray for wisdom and leadership for strategic outreach. In Jesus' name, amen.
