Day 13: Tajikistan
Series: 30 Days of Prayer for Muslims and Christians – 2016 Ramadan
Presented in American Sign Language, no voice interpretation.
Located in Central Asia, the small country of Tajikistan boasts over 8 million people, 70 percent of whom are under the age of 30. The Tajik young people in this largely Sunni Muslim region are increasingly curious about Jesus, and many missionaries have been questioned about Jesus by them.
Jesus in the Bible says that the harvest is ready yet many workers are needed. Even in the poor, hard-to-reach mountainous nation such as Tajikistan, many Muslims – notably young ones – are longing for truth and hope. And they are finding it in Jesus Christ.
– Pray that Tajik hearts would be further open to the good news of Jesus Christ, and that many Tajiks would have opportunities to meet Christians who would lovingly share Jesus with them.
– Currently, there are few believers in Tajikistan. Pray that the existing Church would be strengthened and obedient in sharing Jesus with others, so that it will multiply throughout the region.
– Pray for increasing hunger among Tajiks both in Tajikistan and in Afghanistan, Uzbekistan and Russia. Pray that God would send more laborers in these communities (Luke 10:2).
