Pray for Albania - Facebook Page

Albania was once the poorest nation in Europe, but poverty has been cut by more than half and the economy continues to show positive signs of growth. Despite having a well-known mob, Albania made notable steps in combating drugs, weapons and human trafficking. Last year the European Commission said Albania had shown enough progress towards implementing the required reforms that accession negotiations can begin. Under Communist rule, no religion was allowed. Now, Islam claims twice as many followers as Christianity. Christian Believers enjoy worshipping openly in a country that once restricted religious freedom, although, most who claim Christianity are reported to be nominal in their faith.

Praise Report
Praise God that children’s ministry is drawing whole families into church and multiple generations are coming to faith (The Bible, Genesis 9:12).

Prayer Requests
This year’s election was largely boycotted resulting in very low voter turn out. Pray for a righteous government (The Bible, Psalm 1:1).
Leading up to the elections, large scale protests called for the government to resign over allegations of involvement in organized crime. Pray this will be purged from the new government (The Bible, Psalm 37:16).

Call to Salvation
Pray that Christians in Albania will be trained in effective evangelism to share their faith with the neighbors and friends (The Bible, 1 Corinthians 1:17).
