Pray for Romania

I was so looking forward to praying for Romania. If you have been keeping up with me you know that last month I was in Romania ministering in some villages. (You can read the full account and look at the pictures at

The following report will also give light to a direction of prayer for us.

Romania has worst living conditions in EU - Romanian Times
Romania is among the EU countries with the worst living conditions, as 43 per cent of its population live in dwellings with no indoor flushing toilet, according to Eurostat data made public today (2/23/2011). Read More at:

Now this is really hard for me to believe (43%) but I did see it reported at another source.

1) Let us rise up and speak the name of Jesus over poverty in Romania. Lord, You said the poor would always be with us. Also, You said to give to the poor, so we pray for their needs at this time.

2) We pray that the Lord of the Harvest would bring in a material harvest for the poor of Romania.

3) Let us pray that extra attention be given to the infrastructure of pipes, sewage and drainage, even in the hard to reach villages.

4) Let us pray Joel 2:25
And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.
During the communist days the economy was devastated and modernization was put on hold.

5) I want us to pray for the village of Apata in central Romania and “Church on a Hill”. This is the church that organized the ministry to the gypsies in the villages in that area. The pastor is Eduard Rurolf and the youth leader is Gyuszi Simon. Please lift these people up to the Lord for protection and blessing.

6) Also pray for European Initiative out of Berlin, Germany that raised the money for the coats, blankets, shoes, etc that were given to the village families. There was a count of 87 people that were saved. More information on EI at

7) Let us pray for the Gypsies in Romania. They are so open to the Gospel.
a. Let us pray that Christians will open their hearts to the Gypsies and go take the Gospel to them.
b. The enemy is waking up to the fact that many Gypsies are getting saved, so let us pray that the seeds planted will be watered and nurtured. We ask You, Lord, to put a hedge of protection around them
c. There are many needs in the villages; many adults can’t read, alcoholism, and yes, indoor plumbing is rare. The Gospel will give hope, inspire creativity, open doors of opportunity and enlighten paths to prosperity. Pray that the Gypsies would follow Jesus into a better life.

8) Also let the Lord lead you in prayer for the government, prayer against corruption, prayer that evil men and women be exposed, and not only meet justice but learn of grace and mercy their Creator offers.

Pray for Montenegro - - - - - -

1) Back during the week of Oct. 12, 2009 our prayer for Montenegro was:” Let us pray that the government of Montenegro would be directed by men and women of wisdom that can discern the global financial times and make laws that encourage invention, wealth building strategies and open doors to commercial markets. Actually Montenegro needs godly Men and women in government positions.”

Let us continue to pray as the following news shows God is answering that prayer in Montenegro economically.

Fifteen companies are interested in developing the Montenegro shelf of the Adriatic Sea – producing hydrocarbons. The ministry said "Basing on surveys done in the southern part of the Adriatic Sea, a lot of promising sites with commercially attractive oil and gas fields were discovered." In 2010, Montenegro government approved granting concessions for geological surveys and oil production. In December, the ministry asked companies interested in concessions to file their bids.

2) Overall Montenegro is still very poor. The average family has a low income. Lord, we know You especially love the poor. We pray that the churches be given resources to give to the poor.

3) Lord, we ask that you choose out faithful men and women that will have the ministry of serving the tables.
Acts 6:2-3 Then the twelve summoned the multitude of the disciples and said, “It is not desirable that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business;

4) There have been many years of oppression from government and men with wicked intent. Let us pray what the prophet Isaiah spoke over Israel:
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”
Lord, we pray that Montenegrins would have their sorrows driven away and that they would dance in the streets full of new wine.

5) Lord, raise up men and women of God that will desire to above all walk in righteousness. Lord, we know that justice and anointing follow such men.

6) Many Montenegrins have an interest in spiritual things but when there is no healthy evangelical church they will turn to cults and witchcraft. Let us pray for Christians proclaim the love of God with boldness.

7) Lord, we are asking for hope to arise in Montenegro.

8) We pray for protection of the churches in Montenegro. When the Holy Spirit starts flowing through the churches some outside forces feel threatened.

Pray for FYROM Macedonia

Once again there have been clashes between the Macedonians and Albanians. (People groups; Macedonian 64.2%, Albanian 25.2%, Turkish 3.9%, Roma (Gypsy) 2.7%, Serb 1.8%, other 2.2% (2002 census)) On February 13th Two police officers and six youths have been injured in clashes between Macedonians and Albanians at the Skopje Fortress, …The two police officers were hurt by stones hurled at them. The local hospital said they provided six more people aged between 13 and 24 with medical treatment.

1) Let us pray for calming of tensions between the Macedonians and the Albanians. Lord help them to agree to disagree in peace.

2) Let us pray for common ground between Macedonians and Albanians. Help them to work together to agree on a progressive future that is free of bias.

3) Lord we pray for a peace maker that is filled with the Holy Spirit. Give the churches in Macedonia a plan for incorporating all people groups.

4) There are very few churches in Macedonia. Let us pray for evangelism to go forth in Macedonia. Lord, prepare the churches for increase.
a. We pray for unity among pastors; the casting down of envy, back biting, etc.
b. We pray that the pastors would submit themselves to holiness.
c. Lord, raise up leaders around the pastors to support the pastor.
d. We pray that the Christians would walk holy before the Lord so the gifts can flow through them.
e. Most of all we ask that the Christians would have a compassion for the lost.

5) Pray for the Albanians in Macedonia. Like Albania the Albanians are mainly Muslim but weak in their beliefs. Lord, give the churches a strategy to love these Albanians into the kingdom.

6) Over 30% of the people in Macedonia are out of work.
a. Let us pray for doors of opportunity to open.
b. Let us pray for productivity to take a leap forward.
c. People are going to find a way to make money even if it is illegal. Lord, we pray that the black-market businesses would dry up and be replaced by a righteous economic standard.

Pray for Greece - - - - - - -

Proverbs 22:7
The rich rules over the poor, And the borrower is servant to the lender.

Greece is broke and in debt. Greece is a servant to the lender.

Like many countries, the Greek government relies on borrowed money to balance its books. The recession has made this harder to achieve, because tax revenues are falling just as welfare payments start to rise. It doesn't help that, in Greece, tax evasion is commonplace and pension rights are unusually generous –

This report from the Guardian is discouraging and alarming. Greece is the sick man of Europe and much prayer is needed to open doors of Mercy and favor from heaven.

1) Greece has made many mistakes but our God is a God of Mercy. Lord, you judge nations, so we lay Greece before Your throne and ask that mercy be extended.
2) Lord, we ask that financial wisdom come forth to save the country. Lord, bring forth the Christian captains of business. Give them strategies to recharge the economy.
3) The article above mentions tax evasion being commonplace. We are clearly taught in the Bible that disregard for civil law is a sin. A man that hoards and holds back due payments will be cursed. (This can apply to tithing also) Lord, we pray for righteousness even in paying taxes and tithes. (Prov. 29:2, Matt.8:9, 1Tim. 2:1-3)

The following are prayer needs sent in by a dear brother and prayer warrior in Greece, Spyros Karalis. (He had a long list so I had to edit for the blog space. I have added the bold text)

Thank you, dear brother, because you honor me, asking a list of praying requests for my country.

Here is what I think is important:
4) Thanks to the Father for good Greek and Jewish relationships. We pray to continue this trend especially in the Church of Christ and in all Greek society, because there are still strong anti-Semitic feelings among the Greek Orthodox, even among some born again Christians. There is too much false propaganda from the Muslims against the Jews in the Greek media. This falsely influences all the Greek people.
5) Lets pray that Greek and Jewish believers be united as one in the Lord, and make visits and invitations one another between them. We have been brothers estranged for a long time. I am sure that as Greek believers we have a special calling in order to provoke to jealousy the Jewish people by our love and commitment to them. (Read the following link for more information of Greeks reaching out to Israel,
6) We see recently a new spirit of unity between Evangelical and Pentecostal Christians. Thanks to our Father for that trend. We pray to continue and establish a new era of unity and brotherly respect between all born again believers in Greece. A new unity of all believers for the evangelization of our people. Lord we do ask for Your prayer to be fulfilled, “that they may be one, as We are.”
We pray for a strong unity and respect between pastors, elders and everyone who works in the ministry in the Church of every Christian denomination. Prayers and friendship between them.
8) I have a strong feeling that our Lord has prepared a "Greek Orthodox Martin Luther". May this man appear. May he come from the inside, from the womb of the Greek Orthodox Church, some Orthodox theologian, or clerical, priest, bishop or monk, who fears only God, not men, with the spirit of Elijah or John the Baptist, and who will call all Greek Orthodox people to repentance, exalting only the Sacred Word of God, not human church traditions. Someone who has profound knowledge of the Greek Orthodox tradition and who knows the writings of the Greek Church Fathers. Someone who loves Israel. May this man appear in our days and may appear shortly. Yes, Lord, we join in calling out for this voice from within.
9) As kings and priests of our God, we call Him and His authority upon our country. We pray Him to come upon the sky of Greece and take His authority in our country. We invite him, “Come, dear Lord.” Take your authority that the Devil questioned. We want you, not the Devil that holds dominion now upon Greece. Lord, we ask for Your Kingdom to come to Greece.
10) “And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged." John 16:8-11 We pray for this about the Greek people.
11) We pray against ancient pernicious religious doctrines, Greek Orthodox errors: between them, sacramentalism that is magic (seven sacraments which only priests have authority to accomplish), worship of icons (strong feelings of idolatry) and worship of saints and the Virgin Mary (that is invocation of dead spirits, necromancy), against clericalism, (they made priests a special order in the Church, who became mediators between God and the believers, forbidding the simple believer to go directly in the name of Jesus to his Heavenly Father). We pray that all these satanic religious strongholds in the Greek Orthodox Church may come down in our days. Let us pray for those trapped in the false Orthodox belief that they are the only right church and all others are heretics. Lord, bring down the false oppressive spiritual authority of the Greek Orthodox clergy upon the conscience of the Greek people. May the Greeks begin to search in other places for the real Christian faith, and not turn to disbelief.
"The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, The haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, And the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day" (Isaiah 2:11).
12) We pray against political and social corruption in the Greek society. We pray against a spirit of racism that has come in Greece because of the illegal immigration, especially Muslims. The illegal immigrants are about 1,5 million people in Greece, while our population is about 10 million. We pray also against the uncontrolled illegal immigration that produces much of social stress.
13) We pray for the evangelization of Muslims in Greece. There are too many, and there is a danger of terrorist activity.
14) Common prayers, helping, worship and teaching between believers of every denomination. Little by little we want to become One in the Lord.
15) Let us pray for Bro. Spyros Karalis; Lord keep him in Your special care. Lord, bring many other intercessors to his side. Lord, I pray that You would draw men and women of prayer around him and may they be granted an open heaven.
