Holidaymakers in France: France has more international tourist arrivals (86.9 million) than any other country in the world. Pray for French churches as they welcome international visitors this summer. Pray also for Christian holiday centres in France as they welcome people in the peak months of July and August. Guests will be a mixture of Christians and not-yet believers.
Reconciliation with "yellow vest" movement: The ongoing ‘yellow vest’* movement has been revealing significant discontent among the French population since it started in November 2018. Please pray for all those seeking to find appropriate solutions and especially for Christians as they take opportunities to explain and exemplify "the ministry of reconciliation" (2 Corinthians 5:18). *(The ‘yellow vests’ movement is a populist political movement for economic justice.)
Planting churches: Although less than 1% of the population of France are considered to be evangelical believers this figure is growing and a new evangelical church is founded every 10 days. Yet there may be as many as 250 towns of over 10,000 people that has no evangelical church. Pray that God will be pleased to bless the vision of the National Council of Evangelicals in France (CNEF) whose goal is to have one church for every 10,000 of the population.
