History / Politics
Stable parliamentary democracy with constitutional monarchy; European Union nation.
Retains a core of Christian traditional values in its culture and laws. Has been more open to spirituality in recent years, but up to half the nation is agnostic. About 80% of the population is still in the Lutheran church, but see it as a place of ritual only. There is a shortage of evangelical pastors. Immigrants and guest workers might be a place where revival is more likely to begin.
Pray that the affluence of the society would not seduce people away from the Gospel. Pray the Lord would bring revival among the 80% of the population who are Lutheran. Pray that the number of evangelical Christians would increase. Pray the supply of pastors would increase, and that they would be encouraged. Pray for the many immigrants working here, many of whom are open to the Gospel.
