Monday, July 15, through Sunday, July 21, 2013
This is the second post in a five-part series that presents prayer requests for the Turkic Peoples during Ramadan.
Monday: The Tatars of Russia number 5.3 million with over 20,000 believers. Tatarstan is a republic in Russia. The NT was finished in 2005. Pray for the entire Bible to be finished soon.
Tuesday: Central Asians in Russia number 10 million, many coming there to work. Pray that they discover the truth of Jesus the Savior and take the Good News back to their homelands.
Wednesday: The Hazara of Afghanistan (2.9 million) are Shiite Muslims and are persecuted by the Sunni majority in Afghanistan. There are now several hundred followers of Jesus and some portions of the Bible exist in their language. Pray for the continued translation of the Bible and for the Church to be strengthened and grow.
Thursday: A few thousand Karakalpak (translated “black hats”) in Uzbekistan have recently become believers despite persecution. Pray for completing the translation of the Bible and for the Church to stand fast and keep growing.
Friday: The Gagauzi in Turkey (412,000) have few, if any, known followers of Jesus. The Bible does exist in their language. Pray for workers to take them the Good News.
Saturday: Uighurs of China (11 million) live in a region of Western China sometimes called Turkistan. There are 400 believers. Pray that the Good New spread from house to house.
Sunday: Praise! –The Gagauzi in Moldova experienced a movement to Christ in the 1990s. They are 6% Evangelical and have growing churches. Pray for them to enter the Harvest Force!
