"Pilgrim and Sojourner." - 1 Peter 2:11

 Pray for Macedonia


During the night Paul had a vision of a man of Macedonia standing and begging him,
“Come over to Macedonia and help us.” Acts 16:9(NIV)

Since that time, Christianity has flourished and floundered here. God’s will is that every Macedonian have an opportunity to make a heartfelt decision to follow Jesus Christ and grow to maturity in a reproducing, indigenous church. Please pray that Biblical Christianity will flourish here again.

Brother Kire shared this with me and I thought it might be good to share it with SI for those who would feel led to pray for this country and see more information about it.

 Re: Pray for Macedonia

Brother Greg, thank you for posting this!!
Yes,Macedonia really needs prayer and more christian workers to spread the Gospel!

Macedonia is a small, mountainous, land-locked, eastern European country. It is one of the former Yugoslavian republics. Macedonia is bordered by Serbia & Montenegro (and Kosovo) to the north, Greece to the south, Albania to the west, and Bulgaria to the east. Here you can see some [url=]maps[/url]

-Macedonia may need evangelical pioneering more than any other European nation
-Evangelical Christians make up less than 0.1% of the population!
-Many towns are without any evangelical church!
-Few full-time evangelical missionaries are present and those who are find that the work is slow and there is not yet a great movement among the churches
-95% od macedonians are considered orthodox christians, but
-Long ago, the Apostle Paul brought the life-changing message of Christ to Macedonia, but today many Macedonians say they are Christians simply by their birth in an “Orthodox Christian” nation, and “Christianity” means lighting candles and leaving coins on icons; they've never heard about a personal relationship with Christ.
-The people of Macedonia have put their hope in the religious traditions of Orthodoxy or Islam rather than in the blood of Christ.
-The Macedonian Orthodox Church is spiritually weak and vehemently opposed to evangelistic ministries. But despite their harsh criticism (and often ostracism) of those who belong to evangelical "cults", the members of the evangelical church hold strong to their faith and have been involved in outreach ministries to their fellow Macedonians.
-In Macedonia attending evangelical church is still unfortunately considered by many like you are involved to some 'cults' and 'sects', how sad!
-Many,many haven't heard about personal relationship with Jesus and the Gospel

The need is same and big, as 2000 years ago "And a vision appeared to Paul in the night; There stood a man of Macedonia, and prayed him, saying, Come over into Macedonia, and help us." Acts 16:9

The same cry is going on today!

All brothers and sisters who have on heart to help and pray for Macedonia are welcomed!
If anyone has questions about my country, let be free to ask me.
I want to add another site with information about christianity in Macedonian -

In Christ,

 Re: Pray for Macedonia

Here is very powerful message about missionary work: [url=]Every Believer Is Called to the Nations by David Wilkerson[/url]
Every Believer is called to walk in the Testimony of Jesus Christ - whether in Africa, Asia or in their city or hometown. This is a very encouraging and challenging message, especially if one has ever felt called into mission work of any kind.

There is a compilation from the same message, which I highly reccomend to be heard:
