Saint Lucia

Title: Saint Lucia

Tier: 1

Type: country

The veneer of religion without true faith is a widespread problem – the more historic churches are in significant decline. Living Christianity decreasingly influences much of society, as increasing materialism undermines spiritual life. A staggering 86% of all children are born out of wedlock and 45% of all households are led by women. Pray for genuine renewal in the churches and for the spiritual and moral transformation of society.
