Pray for Our World: Luxembourg

Luxembourg is situated between France, Belgium and Germany.  They have 100% literacy rate and are a highly industrialized and highly educated multilingual workforce, with an excellent infrastructure.  Banking and finance are the dominant economy in a country known for its low taxes.  It has the 2nd highest GDP per capita in the world.

They are a melting pot of religions too.  There is a strong Catholic heritage, but many other faiths have recently increased, including Islam, Orthodoxy, Jehovah’s Witness, and Eastern mysticism.  Evangelicals are a small minority and have a negative bias from the government and society with the stigma of being a cult.  Foreign missions and resources are difficult for this reason.  Pray that the local churches will be able to reach out to their communities with faith.
