For the revival and spread of the Christian faith in the North and South Caucasus

Just stumbled upon this article discussing the rise of paganism in Armenia. Adherents of the country’s ancient religion–according to one poll–numbered thirty-two percent in 2004/2005, despite the almost ninety-eight percent Christian majority in Armenia as reported by the CIA World Factbook.

This startling news prompts me to turn to you.

Let us pray for (1) the revival of Oriental and Eastern Orthodoxy in Armenia and Georgia, and (2) the spread of the Christian faith among those countries’ minorities as well as the Muslim/secular majority in Azerbaijan, Chechnya, Ingushetia, Daghestan, and neighbouring Russian provinces.

Jesus Christ, we beseech you to reveal yourself to the millions of former Soviet citizens inhabiting the North and South Caucasus in a profound and undeniable way!


I used to attend Divine Liturgy in a church which had been founded by people from this area; I am sorry to hear that the Faith of those in this area is not strong…

Dear Lord,
Consider the beauty of the Liturgy which the people in the Caucasus area have offered you in their worship of You, and have mercy on their descendants. Send them Your grace so they may return to You in the fullness of Your Truth.

I aks this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord.
