Europe is a diverse continent – in landscape, culture and spirit. Europe is a strong continent – in political, economic and social terms. But Europe is also a continent full of challenges: The best and the worst has emerged from Europe in history. Europe brought forth missionaries who brought the Gospel to all corners of the world. But Europe has also brought forth systems of oppression and wars that affected the whole world.
In all corners of Europe, we see the historic influence of the Christian faith. Scripture has shaped and significantly influenced Europe’s culture, Europe’s education systems, and Europe’s legal systems. There is an overarching influence of the Christian scriptures, which has brought European society to what it is today. But this heritage is under threat, the foundations are crumbling. To overcome all external and internal challenges Europe needs a broad, inclusive and deep unity movement.
1.Let’s pray for Europe’s unity: We prayerfully observe the political and spiritual tendencies of separation instead of unity, of separate ways instead of common cause. We pray Lord that we may be one in Europe that the world may believe that you have sent your son.
2.Let’s pray for Europe’s togetherness: It is an ongoing challenge to create and maintain unity between majority and minority churches as well as majority culture and diaspora groups. We pray Lord that we may be one in Europe that the world may believe that you have sent your son.
3.Let’s pray for Europe’s leadership: So often we see demarcation instead of togetherness, confusion instead of understanding, competition instead of cooperation. We pray Lord that we may be one in Europe that the world may believe that you have sent your son.
