ATLANTA, March 22, 2017 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Beginning next week, from March 26th through April 16th, Pray for France (www.PrayforFrance.org
), will begin mobilizing Christians from around the world to pray for France in light of the upcoming presidential elections and the current spiritual state of the nation.
Current world events including the upcoming French presidential elections, the effects of the Brexit, and the current global political climate reveal a dire need for prayer. Geographically, politically, and socially the center of Western Europe, France has one of the lowest percentage of Evangelical Christians in all of Europe (1%) and is the fourth most atheistic country in the world (28%) – behind China, Japan, and the Czech Republic (WIN/Gallup International Poll).
The theme for 2017 is "Join the Revival in France" and includes a free prayer guide to help guide Christians to join what God is already doing in France by interceding for the country and its people. Topics for the prayer guide have been provided by over a dozen French ministries.
Last year's prayer campaign saw an increased reach in the number of Christians praying for France through out the world. Christians from 91 countries interceded for France through the campaign and have continued to pray for France.
"In France, greater unity among Christians and an urgency to share the Gospel have contributed to church planting and renewal efforts," said David Broussard, president of Impact France, the lead coalition partner. "This is the fruit of passionate prayer we believe that God is calling thousands to pray for France during this time to continue supporting our French brothers and sisters on the ground."
Pray for France is an initiative of Impact France, a U.S.-based non-profit organization, which collects, translates, and disseminates information about the French evangelical world to English speakers throughout the world who have a heart for France. Impact France has dozens of French ministry partners who provide the most up-to-date information on what God is doing in this country.
