Title: Montenegro

Tier: 1

Type: country

Independence brought optimism and hope. Montenegro is a small country, but it has great potential. However, it must avoid the hatred among ethnic/religious communities that cripples most nations of the Balkan region. Pray for Montenegro to be a just, peaceful, and corruption-free nation which enjoys ethnic harmony! Pray that people will seek the truth of Christ in the midst of their newfound nationhood.
