Pray for Our World: Czech Republic

Czech Republic is a landlocked country between Germany, Poland, Slovakia and Austria.  Emerging from the  communist regime in 1989, it rapidly democratized and has one of the most developed economies in central Europe with strong industry and manufacturing components.  But the long and turbulent history and the fact that it has not been a religious society for hundreds of years, has left a significant falling away and fading of religious influence in the society.

There are new churches and ministries springing up, especially with younger people.  Unfortunately the Catholic Church in this area has failed to play a relevant role in the new society after communism and is in rapid decline, unlike its neighboring countries of Poland and Slovakia.  The traditionalism of the Catholic Church in Czech Republic has made it a religion for old people, and younger people are not joining the church or the priesthood.

Pray for a new and renewed vision of Christianity in this country that has gone for several generations without any  religion in their society.

The man who mobilizes the Christian church to pray will make the greatest contribution to world evangelization in history. – Andrew Murray
