Christians Find Place to Worship After Two-Year Search

[202] prayers in [13] nations have been posted for Church finds home.

A church in Turkey that has been looking for a worship space for two and a half years has finally found one. While the cost of renting a large space was one obstacle, the main challenge was finding a building owner willing to rent to a church. “We have tried many times to rent a place,” the pastor said, “but on each occasion … the owner turned back from renting to us.” The building God provided is an ideal size and location for sharing the gospel, and the church obtained it despite seemingly insurmountable challenges. “Once again we are able to see that through prayer, every spiritual barrier is destroyed,” the pastor said. Pray that the church will have the financial resources to pay a year’s rent and that the building will soon be ready for use.

Use their testimony to draw the landlord and his family plus those in the neighborhood to the Savior. We pray for the building to be ready for worship services soon.

  • Dear Lord, please cover these believers with the love, grace, and comfort that only Your Holy Spirit can provide. Give them wisdom, so they will know how to live and react to reach their goals. Help them to know that they are examples to us of standing firm in the faith in the face of persecution. Remind them of Your promise in 1 Peter 4:14.
