But today Italy strives to move to make a change.The population of Italy is approximately 60 million people, and the evangelicals are only 1.2%. The evangelical church is small and divided. Many Italians worship idols, and the society in Italy is becoming more secular.Catholic culture is widespread in societyItaly is the nation with the most Catholic church buildings in the world, and having a rich and impressive architecture. There are 225 parishes, including the two sovereign states of San Marino and the Vatican. Many Catholic saints, martyrs and popes are also Italian. Catholic art flourished during the medieval Renaissance and the Baroque period, with many Italian artists such as Michelangelo. Italy has 87.8% Catholics and they worship idols and Santa Maria, and the Pope often asks the believers to pray for the New World order.Italian political and economic issuesThe problem of the Italian economy has a long history. The economic development gap between the North and the South is large. The government is corrupt, the bureaucratic efficiency is extremely low, and the number of the poor has soared in recent years. According to the Italian National Bureau Statistics in 2016, the extreme poverty population of Italy reached 4.7 million, accounting for 7.9% of the national population, more than double the number in 2007. The gross domestic product of Italy has not even returned to the level before the 2008 financial tsunami, and the unemployment rate is as high as 11.6%. Infrastructure, market reform and research funding are in a great need in the Italian economy, along with other issues such as political sluggishness, high debt, and reforming difficulty.The new Italy Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said that he will sign a “One Belt and Road” agreement with Chinese President Xi Jinping on 22-24, March, to promote infrastructure. Garrett Marquis, spokesperson for the US White House National Security Conference, the main ally of the West, said that the Italian government’s support for China’s “One Belt, One Road” infrastructure plan is useless. The Italian government does not have to provide legitimacy for China’s infrastructure, which will jeopardize the entire alliance system between Rome and its Western allies. The United States was the first country to express public concern about the agreement between Italy and China.The future and prospective of Italy need the prayers of intercessors to draw Italy into the sheep nations.] 】

Pray For Lithusania
【Background : Population: 2.9M, Evangelical: 1.4%. As far as a country is concerned, Lithuania has made great progress and development since its independence in 1991, but it is still constantly with the demons of the past such as corruption, fear, indifference. Fight. At the same time, it faces the same problems as Western European countries: secularization, depression, and lack of real deep friendship between people. As an evangelical Christian, I often feel that I am small and unable to do anything.
Lithuania is an ancient country with a glorious civilization. Her language is also the oldest language. Before the First World War, Lithuania was a province of the Russian Empire. On February 16, 1918, it became an independent country. On August 3, 1940, it became a Soviet Union and became one of its affiliated republics. On March 11, 1991, independence was declared again. Joined the United Nations in September of the same year. In May 2001, he officially joined the WTO and later joined the European Union and NATO.
93% of the population is in secondary or higher education, and students are ranked first in the European Union in mathematics, technology and science. More than half of the population has at least two or more foreign languages. Ranked first in the EU’s competitive growth rankings. 70% of vehicles rely on walking, bicycles or buses.
The suicide rate in Lithuania is comparable to that of Japan in the world, and even surpassed it.
The gospel is still open! But freedom also brings high material desires, selfish pursuit of pleasure, and the danger of depreciating traditional morality. Drug abuse, suicide, and the sale of women as jealousy all jeopardize social roots. With economic growth, there must also be spiritual transformation. Lithuania is one of the latest Christian countries in Europe.
The Catholic Church plays an important role in society, but only one of every six Catholics is fixed to the party every week; please promote the relationship with other Christian groups for the Catholic Church and attract people through its influence. Near Christ. The Franciscans, Charismatic and Evangelical networks in the Catholic Church attract young leaders and create a fresh spiritual atmosphere. Other traditional sects also face some challenges, most of which are struggling to avoid losing friends.
Evangelical groups (Baptist, Pentecostal, and Adventist) that have been established in the past have survived the Soviet era, but they must now adapt to meet the spiritual needs of the new era. The emerging Pentecostal and Charismatic churches have grown rapidly over the past decade through active evangelism and related ministry; paganism and false prophets have also sneaked in with the opening of religious freedom, so it is important to establish the foundation of the Bible. 】

You know what they are doing now, and you are examining the hearts of the Lithuanian people and sympathizing with their sufferings and joys. I know their dreams and difficulties and have answers to all questions. Seeking for the separation of the Lithuanian people from the binding of alcohol and drugs; through the care of the members of Christ, those who have lost faith, hope and loneliness have love and warmth, and no longer solve problems by suicide. Seek the road to guide them on their way, help Lithuania to experience the embarrassment, understand the love and truth of the blasphemy, and open the eyes of the Lithuanian people. They are called because of the precious love of the Son of Jesus, and ask the Holy Spirit to add their strength. The will of the line!
- Pray for the younger generation : Heavenly Father, the present culture brings many temptations to the younger generation, and the spirit that is given to them to distinguish them from danger.

May the young people of Lithuania be saved and enter the kingdom of God!
- Reviving the Church, Transforming Lithuania: Heavenly Father, the Holy Spirit to pour the Lithuanian church, so that the church can update and break through, adjust in time to meet the spiritual needs of the new era. The love of fire is burning to burn the church, so that the various sectarian churches in Lithuania are united in Christ. In particular, the Catholic Church can promote relations with other Christians, tear down the walls of sectarian partitions, establish true relationships in love, and help each other. Strive to keep the heart of the Holy Spirit and to spread the gospel. Conservative missionaries and pastors who have just joined the field, prepare the soil and prepare the hearts of the unreached people. It is also prepared for the body of Christ, who can accept these first believers in the love of Christ, have perfect discipleship, help them to root in the truth of the Bible and the love of God, and have the ability to distinguish between heresy and false prophets. Let the gospel spread throughout every corner of Lithuania, establish a new church, so that church leaders can receive visions, seek jealousy, and align with their jealousy! Bringing the transformation of Lithuania through the unity of Christ’s body and prayer altar!
