This week we pray for Croatia still recovering from the terrible Balkan conflict in the 1990s. Pray for those who live with the ongoing effects and those seeking reconciliation. Pray for renewal in the Catholic church and for the small numbers of evangelicals to reach across the ethnic divides of Croat, Serbian and Bosnian.
Most Croatians are Catholic, and less than one percent are Protestant. The country supports freedom of religion, but there is a not a distinct separation between the state and the Catholic church. There is a close link between ethnicity and religion throughout the nation, which has limited opportunities for spiritual breakthroughs and has left the number of evangelical churches few.
