Day 11 | 30 Days of Prayer | Croatia
Today we pray for Attendees: Koko, Kathryn, Sarah, and Ellen
Blessed is the [woman] man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is in the Lord. For [she] he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, which spreads out its roots by the river, and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green, and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit. Jeremiah 17:7–8 NKJV
Father, we ask You to visit these women with grace in their seasons of transitions. We pray that the barren landscape of trial will become fertile soil for new growth. Gracious God, revive their spirit and restore their laughter. May they find You in their pain and trust You in their waiting.
Holy One who redeems all things, meet them powerfully as they journey through a “Land Between” [Manion, Jeff, The Land Between: Finding God in Difficult Transitions]. We pray that You free them from a spirit of fear.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Challenges for Prayer
Expatriate Christians have opportunities for discreet sharing as the nation becomes more open and international. However, arrests, imprisonment and deportation still occur for those who evangelize or distribute Christian literature unwisely. Pray that believers would demonstrate Christ in their words and deeds with discernment and confidence. Pray for the English, Arabic, Urdu, Filipino and Indian language worship groups and congregations in their worship and witness.
