Most Americans won’t know where Djursland is, but a dedicated group of Danes are gathering to blanket this region in prayer. What’s going on?
|One of Djursland's quaint historic towns.|
This past month a group of over 30 concerned believers met to pray and to hear what God has been doing here over the past several months. The prayer initiative, sponsored by the Indre Mission renewal movement, is called “God wants to do more… in Djursland.”
Djursland, a hilly Danish peninsula facing Sweden at the entrance to the Baltic Sea, is a popular tourist destination for Danes and other Europeans. And apparently God is now stirring up Christians in this region to reach out and to pray in new ways.
One of the participants told the group about setting up an informal coffee stand to serve neighbors and tourists, opening up new opportunities to meet and pray. Another explained how to use the local phone book as a prayer list. Still another told of plans to start a Bible study for newly arrived refugees from the troubled Middle East. And that was just a start.
“We want to follow up on these initiatives and keep the prayer flames burning,” said Egild Kildeholm Jensen, organizer of the event. Pray for them!
PRAY that believers will be stirred up in new ways to reach out in the name of Jesus.
PRAY that visitors and others would notice a wonderful difference in this beautiful area of the country, and that they would be drawn to the Gospel here as never before.
PRAY for a new sense of unity across churches in Djursland, as believers come together to pray more and more.
PRAY for the “God wants to do more!” movement in Djursland, that revival flames would spread from this place.
