Pray today

Almost every settlement in Greenland has a Lutheran church – but many lack real spiritual life. Pray for renewal. Modern culture clashes with Greenland’s old ways, and many now battle with immorality, sexual abuse, alcoholism, mental illness, and suicide. Some indigenous believers and foreign missionaries serve in counselling, healing, and deliverance, and see wonderful fruit by the work of the Holy Spirit. Pray for this to continue. Thank God for new airstrips that opened remote settlements for ministry.

The culture of Greenland, so finely tuned to the inhospitable environment, is devastated by modernity. The dire results are widespread immorality and sexual abuse, alcoholism, mental illness and suicide. Deep emotional and spiritual healing are necessary for many to move beyond their pain and hurt. Thankfully, some indigenous believers, missionaries and short-term workers minister in counselling, healing and deliverance and see wonderful fruit as increasing numbers are transformed by the work of the Holy Spirit. Many of those working in Greenland, including many indigenous people, are newly empowered to minister as a result. Pray for this to continue and for those receiving help to get plugged into communities of faith.

Pray today

The impact of the devastating hurricanes of 2004 and 2005 is still felt. Up to 90% of the island's buildings were destroyed, and the agriculture and tourism sectors were virtually annihilated. Both sectors were rebuilt, but at the cost of crippling external debts. Some of this debt was restructured, but long-term solutions are still needed. Pray for debt forgiveness rather than restructuring, for Grenada to be spared such devastastion in the future, and for Grenadans to put their faith in God above all things.

Christianity in Grenada accounts for the vast majority, but most are nominally Catholic because of the earlier French legacy. However, several mainline, conservative and emerging denominations enjoy a healthy existence.
