We pray today for the believers in Turkey. In just one year Turkey has risen from #45 to #37. This is due to political changes, ethnic conflict and radicalism.
Of the population of 80 million, there are an estimated 187,000 believers. For more information check out Open Doors USA.
Father, we pray for Turkey. Unlike many of the other places, we have been praying for I have walked on the streets of Turkey. I pray for these people, that the rise in persecution will cease and take a turn for peace. Not the peace necessarily that the world keeps asking for but the peace the world desperately needs in you. Protect those who have taken on your banner and give them motivation and wisdom to reach others. Let their lights shine in the darkness and illuminate your love throughout Turkey. Amen
