Pray for Uzbekistan - facebook page

The gateway from Asia to Europe, Uzbekistan is Central Asia’s most populous country. The lucrative drug trade flows through this gateway, yet the country remains impoverished. Every autumn, the government requires over one million adults and children to pick cotton, ranking Uzbekistan second on the list for global modern day slavery. Since the new government came to power in 2016, there has been an increasing commitment to reforms. This includes the release of religious prisoners and the registering of a church for the first time in eight years. Although it is a secular state promoting Islam, the government opposes Islamization. With an “iron fist,” Uzbek leaders control Islamic factions. With that same “iron fist,” Uzbek authorities target Christian Believers.

Praise Report
Praise God for the registering of the new church. Pray that many will be curious to attend church services (The Bible, John 12:32).

Prayer Requests
Pray for Christians whose churches have been raided and property confiscated to not give in to fear (The Bible, Genesis 15:1).
Many central Asian nations struggle with lack of employment and weak economies. Ask God to release creative solutions to see this situation change (The Bible, Psalm 90:17).

Call to Salvation
Pray for dissatisfaction with the status quo to draw many to search out the Bible for answers leading them to salvation (The Bible, Psalm 5:8).
