Pray Today – July 10: Kalimantan, Indonesia | Operation World

Filed under: christian — dannywahlquist @ 5:52 am

Indonesia’s vast diversity is both its strength and its peril. With 17,500 islands strewn across nearly 10 million sq km of ocean, 33 provinces, 722 languages, even more ethnic groups, myriad religious expressions and deeply divided political agendas, holding this nation together is a monumental task. Pray for political strength for the maturing democracy to stay balanced between national unity and regional identity. Pray also for the government to act with righteousness in honouring all peoples and communities; Indonesia’s history, especially recently, is characterized by discrimination, exploitation and favouritism.

Kalimantan

Leadership training is a definite need as the Church grows, but illiteracy, poverty, geographic isolation and lack of indigenous Scriptures have all slowed development. There are a number of Bible schools. Pray for churches to mature and have a vision for outreach; pray also for expressions of Christian faith to be culturally resonant and appropriate.
