Welcome to Worldwide Wednesday – “D” for Denmark
Greetings, friends – thank you so much for joining us today to pray around the world through the alphabet.
We are going to pray without ceasing. God is working. I love this reminder from Abraham Lincoln:
“I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for the day.” Abraham Lincoln

Challenges for Prayer
Old non-missional theologies are devastating for the Church, since they fail to equip the Church in effective discipleship and mission in a secular realm. Pray for theological and missional renewal in all seminaries and Bible schools that will encourage a vibrant missions vision. Pray also for leaders to be raised up who are able to communicate Christ with the Danish postmodern youth culture.
There is a shortfall of pastors, especially for Free Churches of all types. Even with a number of fresh and new ministries and church planting efforts, many evangelical congregations, especially those without a pastor, are in stagnation or even decline. Pray for the provision of capable, godly leaders and for the revitalization of these evangelical congregations.
- Pray for the Holy Spirit to bring revival to the Lutheran Church where many have become disillusioned.
- Pray for biblical thinking to replace the secular, postmodern worldview prevalent among the youth.
- Pray for financial support for full-time pastors and teachers who are anchored in the truths of the Bible.
Thank you Heavenly Father for your care for the people of Denmark. We ask for your presence in every church where the word of God is taught. We ask for your strength for the pastors and leaders there who know you as their personal Savior. We ask for you to take them to a deeper walk with you as they study your word and teach what you say to us through the Bible. We ask for you to send new pastors and leaders to Denmark to strengthen the believers there. We ask for a fresh anointing and equipping of the leaders as you send them out to revive the work that was begun. We bless you and praise you, Lord, for what you will do in Jesus’ name, Amen.
