Despite being one of the cradles of Christianity, today’s Italy is a widely materialistic country. Its Catholic majority (over 90% are baptized as such) is mostly nominal, with only 25-30% of the population actually attending church regularly.
The term “Christian” in Italy is synonymous with “Catholic”, or even simply “human being”, but the numbers tell us a different story. With less than 1% of Evangelicals, almost as many Jehovah Witnesses, around 3% of Muslims and a staggering 8 billions spent every year in fortunetellers, witches, healers and the like, Italy is a huge evangelization field that needs your help and prayers.
Please pray for…
Unity among the Italian church and protection from false doctrines
For repentence from past church mistakes, for less formalism, for more consacration
For a visible and effective church
For Italian missionaries and missionaries in Italy, they need prayer and economical support
For more workers in the italian field
For christian students studying in a very hostile academic context
For new believers and the beginning of a revival within the Italian church
For total dependance on God
