Pray for Our World: Bosnia

Settlements have been in Bosnia from a very early time.  Christianity arrived in the first century AD.  Later during the Turkish occupation, many became Muslim.  The first World War started in Bosnia when a Bosnian Serb nationalist assassinated Austrian Archduke Franz Ferdinand in the capital city of Sarajevo.  In the second World War, hundreds of thousands were exterminated by Nazi collaborators.  Most recently there was the three-sided war between Serbians, Croatians, and Bosnians in 1995, with no real winner and a nation torn and divided.  Bosnia has a deep and long history.

Pray for the people of Bosnia, that their country will heal from their wounds and return to their first century Christianity of the apostles.
