Prayer Focus for Guadeloupe – Sunday, November 13

by Cindy Riggle

  Guadeloupe, Caribbean: Pray for Areas and peoples less reached with the gospel: a) The outlying islands are less evangelized – Marie Galante, Les Saintes and La Désirade.

Prayer Focus for Grenada – Sunday, November 6

by Cindy Riggle

Grenada, Caribbean: The Grenadian diaspora is large, numbering possibly twice as many as those living in the country.

Prayer Focus for Greece – Sunday, October 23

by Cindy Riggle

Greece, Europe: Foreign missions have not found Greece to be an easy field because of strong nationalism, visa restrictions and the high degree of cultural adaptation required.

Prayer Focus for Ghana – Sunday, October 9

by Cindy Riggle

Prayer Focus for Germany – Sunday, October 2

by Cindy Riggle

Prayer for the Gambia – Sunday, September 18

by Cindy Riggle

The Gambia, Africa: Islam is dominant, but the traditional Gambian expression is a gentler version rather than the more strident edition from Libya and Saudi Arabia seeking to exert influence over the education and economic systems and the political process. Most Christian work and presence have been near the coast, with few involved in reaching […]
