Pray for France

Pray for France: A 40 Day Initiative

The center of Western Europe.
30% atheist.
1% Evangelical.
February 24 – April 4
Why France?
- Evangelical Christian believers account for about 1% of the population.
- Church attendance is one of the lowest in Europe (6-8%, compare that to the USA’s 44%).
- 80% of French people have never owned or even seen a Bible.
- There are approximately 50,000 full-time practitioners of occult arts (tarot, fortune telling, psychic healing, etc) who easily outnumber the 35,000 full-time Christian workers in France.
- Muslims make up approximately 10% of France’s population (compared to 1.5% in the USA). This is the highest percentage in any European country.

*Please continue to pray for relationships between Christians and Muslims here in France.

*Please continue to pray for our children’s school; that the moral code would improve.

*Please pray for us as we lead a Bible study for Trinity International Church of Strasbourg.  It is a 6 week study called “the harvest” based on Matthew 9-10, Luke 10, John 4, and other passages.
