Armenia: A Cultural Peninsula

Posted by the GEM Prayer Team on 06-Jul-2015 in Armenia

 As the first nation in the world to make Christianity its official religion and home of the ancient Armenian Apostle Church founded by two of Jesus’ disciples (Thaddaeus and Bartholomew), Armenia has a long-standing and strong historical tie to Christ and the church. 2015 marks the 100 year anniversary of the Armenian genocide where Christians were persecuted and brutally eliminated for professing faith in Jesus. While 95% of Armenians still profess to be Christians, sadly few read the Bible and have a faith that would withstand that kind of testing again.

There is reason for praise with the release of a newly-translated Bible and the hope that it will reignite the spiritual fire of the Armenian people.

Prayer Points (Prayercast's Suggestions)

  • "Pray for the Armenian Church to 'speak the truth in love, to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ' (Ephesians 4:15).
  • Pray for the Armenian diaspora to pray for, evangelize amongst, and disciple Armenians living in-country.
  • Pray for Armenia believers to be a light among their Muslim neighbors by obeying Romans 12:17-18 - 'never pay back evil for evil to anyone. Respect what is right in the sight of all men.If possible,so far as it depends on you,be at peace with all men'".
