Title: Czechia

Tier: 1

Type: country

Over 70% of the population consider themselves non-religious, although many use horoscopes and mix together different spiritual ideas. The successful transition to a market economy was a positive change for the country, but it put economic stress on the most vulnerable people. Crime, sexual immorality, substance abuse, depression, and suicide all have notably higher rates today than they did during Communist times. Ask God to lift the spiritual heaviness from over Czechia. Social changes create new opportunities for ministry. The ageing population and new immigrants (especially Russian speakers, East and Southeast Asians) need loving outreach.
