Pray for Our World: French Polynesia

The French Polynesia is a group of over 100 islands in the South Pacific.  It was one of the last places on earth to be inhabited.  The main islands are Tahiti and Bora Bora.  The official language is French, and France controls the aid and military to the islands.

It is no doubt a beautiful place, but it is also a paradise lost.  Formerly, it was a strong Christian nation that sent missionaries all over the Pacific.  Today, it is debased by increasing vices and immorality.  Tahitian missionaries no longer go out to other islands.  The Catholic church has had some renewal in the 1980’s and 1990’s, but many have returned to tribal pagan influence.

Pray for the Christian churches there, that they may have revival and gain more influence over other strong influences on the islands such as paganism and mormonism which have been on the increase.
