Pray for Our World: Serbia

Serbia is a landlocked Balkan state. It has two autonomous provinces, Kosovo in the south and Vojvodina in the north. It has a long history. Since its defeat to the Turks in 1389, Serbia has rarely been in an independent nation. It was ruled by the Ottomons and then Austria-Hungry, its ethnic nationalism helped trigger WWI and provoke genocidal civil war during WWII, then 45 years of communism, and the Balkan wars of the 1990’s. There has been religious and ethnic hatred on all sides.

Pray that there will be unity among the churches – the ancient Serbian Orthodox Church and the protestants and evangelicals, that they may reach out in love and forgiveness to the people of Serbia to show them true religious freedom.
