How To Pray For Russia
Of Russia’s 96 people groups, there are 94 that are unreached; 40 of those are unengaged. Russia is only .7% evangelical Christian. The workers are few! Harvest workers are needed to help find persons of peace and indigenous leaders.
There is only one church for every 28,000 Russian people; 150,000 new churches are needed.
The vast majority of Slavic Russian people are non-religious or atheistic. The Slavic people make up 79% of Russia’s population.
Russian pastors and leaders suffer from discouragement as existing churches are in decline.
Russian laws enacted in July of 2016 have severely restricted religious liberty, making it illegal to be evangelistic. However, this persecution is bringing about an awakening of the church, and a resolve to glorify God by making disciples.
It is very difficult to mobilize North Americans willing to work with Russian partners to reach the country with the Gospel. Pray for open hearts and faithful workers.
Love Russia Mission is supported by generous givers like you.
